Fleas Navidad

Hey there! Super quick post to share the Christmas card I made for my six year-old nephew this year! He adopted a wiener dog not too long ago, so I thought this would be perfect!

Here's what it looks like when it's closed:


And here's a view of it opened up (HA!):


That ADORABLE wiener dog, his hat, the punny sentiment, and the bones are from "Santa Paws" by Paper Smooches! (Thanks to my inky buddy, Michele, for letting me borrow that set!!) I'm going to enter this card into the Paper Smooches January Guest Designer Contest

Using the fold of the card as a guideline, I stamped the front of the dog (masking the tail end). Then I stamped the tail end and masked off the front. Then, I used a black Sharpie marker to connect the two and did some paper piecing to dress him up!

The strings of lights are from "Retro Christmas Backgrounds" by Practicing Creativity Designs and the patterned paper is "Dots and Stripes: Christmas Collection" by Echo Park!

I hope you like my creation!!! I had SO MUCH FUN making this card!! I hope my nephew gets a kick out of it!!!

Happy Holidays!!!
