Today we are taking a look back at the North Coast Creations November Release!
Don’t you love these cute Christmas pet sets? If his ears were a little fluffier, this cute puppy would look a lot like a blonde cocker spaniel we had. That dog’s middle name was trouble. His first name was Tigger…mainly because when his coat was a little long, he looked a lot like a lion and because our daughter was little and that was what she wanted to name him, lol. When Tig was a few years old, we adopted a parrot…a conure named Odie. The first sound he imitated was Tig’s bark. So we had a dog and a parrot that both barked.
I think this set will be perfect for a Christmas card for that dog lover on your list. And the image itself can be used all year long…for pet sympathy, congrats on your new puppy..etc. I’m using at as a Christmas card w/ one of the greetings that comes with it. I stamped it with the espresso ink directly onto one of the beautiful ODBD Christmas Paper 2013 Collection. I die cut it but altered the curved ends by cutting them off straight and had the bow on the puppy out of the box. A die cut ornament from the ODBD Fancy Ornaments dies was die cut out of a red piece of the same paper pack. I added a stamped and fussy cut pine cone branch on top. The striped paper (from the same pack) was die cut on top and bottom and I added some gold pearl pen dots. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
