My card features the Paws for a Cause stamp set and coordinating Lucky Dog sentiment set. Both of these stamp sets will capture the hearts of anyone who has adopted a dog, works at a shelter or raises money for adoption awareness. All of the silhouettes and sentiments in both these sets are so, so sweet!


I stamped the happy dog silhouette directly on to patterned paper die cut with the Notebook Bracket die. The sentiment comes in a straight line but I used washi tape to mask off different parts and stamped it on three lines using two different ink colours. The Santa's hat is from the Chubby Chum Pals stamp set.


I embellished the card with the Snowflakes dies. All of the patterned paper, including the sentiment strips, is from Teresa Collins' Santa's List paper pad. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check the Paper Smooches Blog on Monday to see if you are the lucky winner of the Paws for a Cause stamp set!
