Bella & Friends-Christmas

5 1/2 x 8 1/2" Real Red cs--score at 4 1/4" & fold in half

4 x 5 1/4" white cs - emboss with Softly Falling embossing folder
Garden Green cs - Use the Layering Ovals Framelits-the largest  one to cut out the oval.
white cs - Use the next smaller oval to cut for this layer

Stamp the dog from Bella & Friends with Crumb Cake ink.  Stamp another dog on a piece of scrap paper & fussy cut it out.  You could use a post it note for this & make sure you have part of the stamped image where the sticky is.  Now lay the cut out dog over top of your stamped dog. If you used a post it note it will stay in place nicely for you.  Now stamp the log from the Foxy Friends stamp set.  Use Soft Suede ink.  Remove the post it note & look at how nicely the dog is sitting on the log.  This is called masking!

The hat is from Snow Place stamp set & matching framelits- using real red ink.  Color the heart & collar with a red maker.

The greeting is from Oh, What Fun stamp set.  The banner is from Thoughtful Banners & punched out with the matching punch.

I used dimensionals on the banner.   Put the white oval onto the green oval & use dimensionals to mount on the front of the card.
