Christmas in July with Joy Clair Dog Gone Christmas

Wm best one no products shown

Hello and welcome!  I'm here today with a card for our week long "Christmas in July" event!

Here's how I made my card:
1) I stamped all the images and colored them with Leisure Arts Colored pencils.  Then I decided which ones I wanted to use and saved the others for another card.

2)  I cut them out, however, you can use the cutting files that come free with every set that you buy.
3)  I added Spectrum Sparkle pen to the string of lights on the dog house.  You can see the sparkle below:

4)  I took Distress Inks in greens and blues and inked with a ink blending tool, the clouds with a cloud die cut and used Post-It tape to mask off a line for the grass.
5)  I cut the panel with a wonky rectangle die, and I cut an extra wonky die from plain white for the inside of the card.
6)  I laid everything out on the card so I would know where to place my sentiments, etc. then I stamped the paw notes and sentiments from the same set with my mini Misti and Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
7)  Next, I added the dog house and popped up the singing puppy on foam tape for dimension.
8)  Lastly, I added the finished panel to a top folding red A2 card base and added the white wonky die on the inside.
Here's a close up look:
