Don't Open Until Christmas

Chloe the cutie puppy received a very thoughtful surprise gift recently, so I put together a dog themed thank you note to send off to the gift giver along with some treats for her own pups.  The new First Christmas set from The Cat's Pajamas was perfect for my card!

Don't Open Until Christmas card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from The Cat's Pajamas
I paired the stamps with the current sketch at Match the Sketch.  The present-toting pup was colored with Copic markers.  I used foam tape to adhere him to a green panel edged with some sparkly silver tape.  The "don't open until Christmas" sentiment was stamped on a red banner strip and slipped underneath the pup's feet. 

After matting the image panel on kraft cardstock, I adhered it to a piece of festive green patterned paper on a coordinating green card base.  The card is already packaged up with some of Chloe's favorite treats from our local pet store and ready to head off in the mail to our special friends!

Materials Used:
First Christmas stamp set, CutUps Framed Up 2 dies (The Cat's Pajamas); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Sour Apple cardstock (My Favorite Things); Real Red cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Kraft cardstock (WPlus9); Home for the Holidays 6x6 paper pad (Doodlebug Design); silver glitter tape (Target); foam tape
