Christmas Peeking Pets Card

posted in: Blog, Helen 0

It’s Helen here today to share a card made using the super cute new ‘Peeking Pets’ stamps and dies from Catherine Pooler Designs.  As soon as I saw these stamps and dies in the shop, I knew I had to have them!

STAMPING

To make my card I stamped three of the dogs, a Santa hat and two of the party hats and then die cut all the elements.  For the best placement on the dies on the stamped images, I die cut each shape from scrap card and then place the negative part of this over the stamped image.

 

DIE CUTTING

Once I’ve got it lined up with a regular white border round the stamped image, I drop the die into the negative space, secure it with low tack tape and die cut.  You can keep these little masks with your dies to use again.

COLOURING

I coloured in the images and then attached some red and patterned paper to a C6 card blank.  But I was careful not to stick down the very top of the red panel so I could slip the die cut pets in behind the paper.  Then added the three hats using foam pads.

 

FINISHING THE CARD

I finished the card by stamping a sentiment from a Lawn Fawn set and adding some gems.
