We Made You A Present

I had some fun making this Christmas card for our new neighbours. They have two bulldogs, two adorable children and an amazing sense of humor. Truthfully, I believe this is how one of their dogs may react to reindeer antlers on their heads - the other one would enjoy it! 

I couldn't stop giggling colouring these two to match my neighbours "Daisy and Leo". I love being able to make a card that is personalized to the person or people receiving it. 

After colouring my "grumpy" dogs with alcohol markers I hand fussy cut them out. I added some sparkle pen to the strings that tie the reindeer antlers on. I built my background with some ink blending, white acrylic paint, cardstock snowdrifts and a die cut fence. After stamping and making a slight tweak to the sentiments I cut them out with a fish tail banner die. A wood dog bone, twine and some gumdrops finish off my card.
