Hand Made Christmas Cards Gone to the Dogs

Here are a few holiday cards that my friend Claire made for the Southern Ontario Animal Rescue to use this holiday season.  There were over 10 cards in total, but some of the design elements repeated so I have chosen just a few to showcase.  (The whole set has already gone to SOAR.)

Here, Claire used a tutorial to create a chevron without a die.  I think it turned out really sweet.

On these next two, Claire used the tags that already were part of the paper design.  She cut around the tags and mounted them as a focal piece on her cards. This technique is a great way to ensure all your design elements co-ordinate with each other.

These larger images were also part of the paper collection.  Here, Claire made her own backgrounds with some stamps and ink.

Overall, it was an adorable set and I am sure it will be entirely used up by SOAR this year!
