I don't have a huge crafting budget, but for Christmas cards I usually allow myself a couple of stamp sets - with dies, obvs - 😉
and here's a card with my first purchase.
I couldn't resist the cute pups from MFTs Yappy Pawlidays.
I played along at MFT Card Challenges with this week's sketch.
My background was inked up with distress inks and splattered with white acrylic paint, for the snow. I still can't really get the hang of this splattering, but I have managed to stop it going everywhere, by placing my background in an old shoe box before flicking the paint on.
The little pup, tree and present were die cut, coloured with copics and then popped up with foam tape for some added dimension.
There's a little diamond dust on the hat and the star too - which has more sparkle IRL than the photo shows.
