Paper Smooches holiday cards to share today. I loved them both so am posting and linking both today. The first one uses a couple fun stamps from the Santa Paws set I just had to buy earlier this year. The sentiment with the cute dog just cracks me up. I started with a white card base and punched Martha Stewart's large snowflake border punch and layered a red piece below the border so it stands out real pretty. Then I rubbed green ink all over an oblong green acrylic block and stamped it on the card creating the frame to place my dog and sentiment in. The Santa hat was paper pieced and I added a white sticker brad to create the "ball".
Paper Smooches card uses the heart candy cane and love digital stamps which are available free on their blog! I saw this idea for a sliding window box here and just had to try it. The green dp forms a little box and the candy cane piece slides out to reveal the message below. I paper pieced the candy cane with sparkly red paper and added white stripes to the circle on top to resemble Christmas candy. You pull on that circle to reveal the message below:
I love, love, love these cards and hope you do too. I am entering them in the challenges at Our Craft Lounge for CAS Christmas and the Christmas challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend.
Stamping smiles, Karen
