Cracker of a Christmas!


Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week I continue to issue the challenges.

Being the third Saturday of the month it is time for a sketch challenge.



For my card this week I used this cute dog on a cracker from Crafter’s Companion. I made my on candy dots which I used on the lower right hand corner of my card using the dots that are left over when you die cut the dot frame edge from the Fancy Seasons Frame Edges die set. I applied some adhesive tape to the back of my card before die cutting the frame edge and then I layered 2 or 3 of the dots together and covered the dots with glossy accents.


For the inside of my card I used the Lorna Label Pop Up Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I added the tiny crackers which are also included in the stamp set with the dog plus a sentiment I have had for sometime which I liked better than the one in the stamp set.


Here is a side view of my card so you can see the pop up part of the card a little easier.
