Poppy and Soldier

Today’s Christmas card was a special request from a friend and features the Cute Just Got Cuter” image from All Dressed Up.

Using the Silhouette Studio software, I removed the sentiment from the original, then copied and flipped the picture to show 2 dogs in mirror image.  I printed the names at the same time as the image, but then re-cut “&” and hung it over the edge of the paper.  I coloured Poppy and Soldier with Pro-Markers, and then followed the current sketch over at From The Heart Stamps.


The papers are all from a Christmas Joy paper stack by First Edition, the snowflake is from my stash, coloured with Pro-Markers to blend with the colour scheme.
