Blog Blitz: Christmas Otter
by JJ Bolton

  Jjbolton_otter1

Hi everyone!  Today, I have another Blog Blitz card using the new Merry Christmas Script word die!   I can't resist a good word die, and I really love the scale on this one.  I also used one of the cute little otters from the new stamp set, Christmas Friends.  I partially die cut the otter for the bottom of the card.

Then I used one of the Stitched Landscape dies to make it seem that he was standing in a snowbank.

For the sentiment, I die cut the word 3 times and then glued them together.  At the end, I covered it in a bit of glossy glue and let it dry.  Just a tip, don't be impatient like me and pick up the die cuts too early!  I should have let my dry a bit more, but I think it still came out okay:)  Here's a close up of the puffy/enameled look of the word die cuts.
