Brrrr!

Today I'm sharing another card I created with the new Clearly Swanky stamps from The Cat's Pajamas. This one uses Poochie's Christmas.

I just love how this card turned out. I stamped Poochie on watercolor paper and then stamped the swirl behind him and sketched in a little ice for him to skate on. His sweater is paper pieced with Bohemia Boulevard paper from My Mind's Eye. I wanted to give the effect of movement, so I rounded the opposite corners of the panel . To emphasize the Brrr! sentiment, I added a little liquid applique to make it look like all the tops were snowy. To finish off, I tied a little grosgrain ribbon around the bottom, and voila! A really fun and funky card.

Well, my nephew's in a Shakespeare play this morning, and I'm so excited to go watch him. Hope you all have a fabulous day! Oh, and be sure to check out the Verve Blog for another fabulous project from the design team. Oh, AND I added a form to be notified by email when Winter Wonder is back in stock, so if you're waiting on it, click here and sign up.

Awesome card! The colors are perfect together and this is a very fun and funky card like you said. Though, it is hard to think of snow and "Brrr" when it is 72 degrees at 7am here :)
