Two Westies Christmas Card

Good morning friends

Today's share is the Christmas card I made for our friends.


After arriving in Arizona last year, they got two adorable West Highland Terrier puppies. We enjoyed watching the puppies play and grow while we were all in Arizona together. Now they are full grown and having a blast chasing gophers on their ranch here in Alberta.  I just had to make our friends a Christmas card with two Westies on it.

The card uses the Twist Circle Pop-Up by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I combined stamps from a couple of different companies for the Westies circle, then added a Candy Cane from Jolly the Mouse and a gift from the Evergreen Pivot card.


Twist Circle Pop-Up Cards are ones that the recipient tends to open and close several times, and I know this one is going to get a lot of attention at their house. I used a mini-stapler to adhere the arm to the base to be sure it wouldn't come apart after repeated handling.


It's so much fun making a personalized card that you know is going to be loved.
