Hello! This has a bit of a backstory, and at the end, I share a resource to send your extra cards directly to those who may need some cheering up this year. So, stay with me!
I recently picked up this unique Cat & Dog Christmas paper pad at Michaels. It was on sale for $2.50, and it is just too cute to resist. I really liked that it had lots of sentiment tags in the pad, but on the opposite side of those sheets it had a smaller print which would be easy to use, if you don’t like the tags.
When I got home, I realized that I don’t have any pet-related Christmas stamps. I spend some time shopping online, but just couldn’t bring myself to order anything. Instead, I decided to use the patterned paper pad, Christmas sentiment stamps I already own, and a few of the non-Christmas pet stamps I have (I actually have very few, considering the cat-lover I am!)
These are what I came up with!
I added sentiments to the tags that didn’t have one already, and I colored some kitten stamps and used them as embellishments, and even added a little paw print and some tiny snowflakes from a punch.
I got to thinking that this type of paper pad would be great for beginner cardmakers, too!
Supplies: Recollections Happy Pawlidays paper pad, W Plus 9 Pick of the Litter stamp set, Power Poppy Snow Kissed stamp set (sentiments), Inkadinkado Cats stamp set (paw print), Memento and Versafine Black inks, Hero Arts Red Royal ink, EK Success Large snowflake and snowflake border punches
