Spot the Dimensional for PCC #68

Today's card uses some of my favourite colours this Christmas season and is inspired by the sketch at the Paper Craft Crew this week.
Now those who know me well are aware that i tend to use a LOT of Dimensionals to add volume to a card. But on this card, because of the way the banners cover the centre panel I decided to use less. So here is YOUR challenge dear readers - "Spot the  Dimensional!" There are only three in use…
Have you found them? There is one under the top of each of the banners and one under the greeting!
One other detail hard to see in this photo is that the Base of the card has been put through the Big Shot with the Polka Dots embossing folder.
The Come to Bethlehem image is a stamp set I have had since I first started stamping - and now it also features as part of this years "Best of Christmas" stamp sets - but this is indeed the original :-)
The greeting is from a set retired last year called Joyous Celebrations and is cut out with the 1" circle punch and layered onto a 11/4' circle of Midnight Muse. The banners are cut from Silver Foil card stock and the beautiful Winter Frost specialty designer series paper.

Card stock: Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Whisper White, Silver Foil
Designer Series Paper: Winter Frost Specialty
Stamps: Come to Bethlehem, Joyous Celebrations
Ink: Midnight Muse
Access: Big Shot, Polka dots EF, Silver Ribbon, 1' an 1 1/4' circle punches, Basic Rhinestones 

Now today was a special day for my dog Sally's special friend Monty - his fourth birthday! So we took him to Hays Paddock park and they had a special play.

 The thrill is always in the chase and Sally wasn't previously (prior to being adopted) called Cougar for nothing as she is a whole 5years his senior but you wouldn't know it as she can more than keep up with him!
 Got Him!

And of course she had a kiss for the Birthday Boy too!! 

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Very sweet Christmas card Jan. Love your colour choices here. I think the dimentionals are only under your round greeting, LOL! Thanks for joining us this week at the Paper Craft Crew! Carolyn x

    1. Thank you so much Carolyn :-) Yes you're right! Plus one each at the top of the banners :-)

  2. Amazing card Jan!!! So beautifully Christmassy and trendy with the banners and colours. I m surprised you restricted yourself with the dimensionals but still looks amazing. Sally is so sweet sharing kisses. She is such a good girl!!! -Katerina

  3. Thank you Katerina :-) yes, I've just made a few more of these today - they are quick too!! I really like the colours! Sally....she is the bestest friend. Always ready with a happy smile and she has a sense of humour and quite enjoys teasing her friend which is something I've not seen in a dog before
