Here is my project - a totally cute little card for that special someone!
For this card, I used a simple mossy colored card base. It's a linen paper, so it's already nice and textured! I then took a sheet of the green pattered paper from the 6x6 Snow Day Petite Paper Pack and cut it into strips. They're roughly 1" wide. I then glued them on an angle on the card base. I love when you can use a holiday paper on a non-holiday card! I thought it went perfectly with this card.
For the image, I stamped the frame from the Say Cheese set with Memento, Tuxedo Black onto a white card stock. I then cut out the frame leaving a thing white border all the way around. I did this because I knew that I was going to be cutting out the other images and leaving a white border as well. This way, it all goes together :)
I used the paw print from the Critters at the Dog Park set and stamped them in Versamagic, Sugarcane. It's a pretty, soft taupe color. Very subtle. I simply stuck Post-It notes over the border of the frame to make sure the paw prints didn't go over that border.
I used the grass image from the same set with Radiant Neon in Electric Green. I stamped several rows of this and layered them up so the grass looked fuller. Who doesn't love full, lush grass??
I could not resist the French bulldog from the Critters at the Dog Park set either!! I love him. I colored him in brown tones with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I cut him out, leaving the thin white border around the edges. I then took the bow tie image and stamped that onto a piece of the blue polka dot paper from the 6x6 Let's Polka Petite Paper Pack. His little nose was colored in using a black Spica pen, so it's just a touch sparkly in person. Reminiscent of a wet dog nose!
The card still needed something else, so I grabbed the large tree from the Critters in the Burbs.
I glued that down with some adhesive, hanging it over the edge of the frame, and I just cut the bottom of the tree to stop at the bottom of the inner frame. For the bulldog, I popped him up with some foam adhesive.
The sentiment, i ruff you, was stamped in Memento Luxe, Love Letters. It's the perfect color for love!
I hope you enjoyed my card I created today!
