Santa's Helpers: Happy Howlidays Christmas Card with Audrey


Hello there! Audrey here with a card featuring the Santa's Helper's stamp set.  It was difficult trying to decide which images to use for my project today, but then as I was coloring them, I had a lightbulb moment.  At first when looking at this image I didn't see a cocker spaniel, but then I decided to color the patch of hair under their chin like a bandanna and suddenly I thought they started looking like my babies!  I'm so excited to finally have a stamp that looks like them!

I started off by watercoloring a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper with my Artist's Loft watercolor set from Michaels.  When it was dry, I ran it through my die-cut machine to give it a stitched edge. I wanted to bring in a bit of red to coordinate with the Santa's hats so I pulled out a piece of red and white striped patterned paper from my stash.  I popped the dogs up using foam tape after die-cutting them with their coordinating dies.  I stamped a sentiment from the set on a speech bubble die-cut and then added some diecut snowflakes which are also included in the Santa's Helpers die set.  To add a bit of sparkle around the snowflakes, I added some sparkling clear sequins, and then mounted the panel on a dark green card base using foam tape.  Finally, I added a bow with my favorite red and white bakers twine.

That's all for me today!  I hope you like my card!  Be sure to stop back by tomorrow with more inspiration from the design team!  Happy Thanksgiving to you!!
