Happy Holly Days - Making Handmade Cards

Happy Tuesday Friends!

I've got a card today that I made using a new eKit from Making Handmade Cards called Christmas Pets. Oh my goodness, it has the most adorable little critters all decked out for the holidays! I chose a decoupage puppy project for my card today.

I think in this picture you can see the layers. There are only 3 pieces to cut out and then I used pop dots to layer it so you could really see the dimension of it. The decoupage pages come with each of the cuts and directions for what to do. Such a neat idea!
I printed the tag using a font from Scrapnfonts called LD Christmas Troll. Isn't it a cute font? I really like it!
Although my rhinestones look blue in this picture they are actually green. I have lots of glitz going on with this card. I used some Martha Stewart glitter on the Santa hat and then some glitter paper for the snowflakes background. I also used my Cuttlebug snowflake folder for one of the panels too! The punched snowflakes are from a Martha Stewart punch that I got last year after the holidays.
This is one of the easel cards that are so popular right now. If you haven't tried one...you really need to! If you want more information on Making Handmade Cards eKits you can go HERE and sign up for their FREE newsletter!
