Delight In Life

Hi All! 

It's Lizzy here with the Facebook Inspiration Team.  I'm here today to share a fun, just-because card :) 


I just adore the little Dachshund puppy in the Critters at the Dog Park set and wanted to make a card centered around this little fella!  My first step was thinking of a sentiment that matched her happy personality and then using Quinn's ABC's (and dies) and Smitty's ABC's to execute it.  I wanted the sentiment to surround the dog, so I used this little trick to make sure everything rounded in the same way: 

Using a circle, lightly draw around the top edge with a pencil to create a placement guide for your sentiment. 

Use the circle to help place letters on the acrylic block. 
Once my sentiment was in place, it was easy to assemble the rest of the card.  


Thanks for stopping by the Lawnscaping blog today!!
