Christmas Has Gone to the Dogs ( And Cats)

Pet owners love to receive cards from their pets.  I know I do.  It's a cute way to include our furry family in the celebration of a holiday or event.

Well, it's time for me to start making those pet cards, and just in time to use the new collection by Maja Design, "Joyous Winterdays".   
Here is a list of the gorgeous papers used from the collection. (Scroll to the bottom and I'll show you where to shop for these lovely papers.)
"Pick a Tree"
The colors in this new collection combine winter blues and traditional Christmas colors of green and red resulting in an exquisite set of papers.  And as always, the papers have patterns that can also be used through the year - not just at holiday time.   BONUS!

I used the new Joyous Winterdays collection for my sweet dog card.  
The sentiment says, "Have a tail-waggin Christmas"

 The dog and kitty are from Tim Holtz "Mini Crazy Cats and Dogs" stamps and matching dies.  I'm obsessed with this die set. Here are a few other projects using this same set:

Puppy cards can be found here

I stamped dogs and cats using Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Mini Cats and Dogs stamp set and the coordinating die set - Sizzix Tim Holtz Mini Cats and Dogs framelits die  set Stamped onto watercolor paper. 

My process: 
stamp onto watercolor paper - die cut the figure after stamping - watercolor with a Watercolor Brush and Tim Holtz Distress inks in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain
I also decided to create a kitty card using a very nontraditional collection of papers and colors featuring a raspberry red from Maja Design "Summertime" collection

 This is more proof that any Maja Design collection can be used for multiple purposes. 

Here is the list of papers I used from the Summertime collection:
