Sending Holiday Cheer...

 Hello friends!

I'm over on the Hello Bluebird blog today sharing a Christmas card that I designed around the Sending Holiday Cheer words die. These large sentiments are so great for quick cards that still have a lot of impact. For the supporting cast of cute characters I went back to the older Snowball Fight set that is full of cats and dogs all decked out for cold weather and used their coordinating dies to pop them in front of the words. Because the footprint of the Sending Holiday Cheer word die is basically square shaped I decided to use the Nesting Square Dies to cut the card front to match. Color was added to the card front using the Tim Holtz Distress inks; Speckled Egg, Tumbled Glass and Broken China. The large sentiment was cut twice, once out of plain card stock and once out of glitter card stock then glued together for some added dimension. Dr PH Martin's bleed proof white was dotted on for some falling snow. I colored the three little peeking kittens using Copic markers and added them to the top of the sentiment using foam adhesive. I like to think that they have sent the holiday treats, from the Littles Holiday Extras set, down below to the pup who appears to have had one too many gingerbread cookies.  :)
