Our fur baby is the big 2!

Look at the big two year old! Jake, our spoiled dog had a wonderful birthday. I took him to have his nails done (trimmed). Then we walked around Petco and he picked out his own birthday toy. Jake also enjoyed a little snow play with Riley and Austin. Okay on to stamping…

I challenged myself to make a card without using patterned paper. This is what I came up with… and it was tough. I had to struggle to find something to fill in the background. I punched holes in the Stonewash (Bazzill) cardstock and then I layer that on top of white cardstock, I was trying to give it a snowing look. I then filled each hole with Diamond Stickles and I still wasn’t very happy with it, it still needed more. I then added small snowflakes (TAC Snowflakes set) in-between the falling snow. Yippee I was happy with the background!



For the second card, I gave up on my challenged and pulled out the patterned paper (Basic Grey Figgy Pudding Forest / Glee) and I was pleasantly surprised to see that Close to My Heart’s (CTMH) Twilight and Garden Green matched it perfectly.

Thanks for reading ~ Jovi

  1. I love both of these cards, but the first one, without patterned paper, is my favourite.
