I used some of the die cuts I made from the the Birthday Memories
Designer Series Paper (DSP) to create today’s card!
The only idea I had was
that I wanted the little girl, who’s protectively guarding her cake from the
dog begging on the right-hand side, and the more snooty looking dog on the
left-hand side! LOL!
started my card with a base of Old Olive Cardstock (CS), and a layer of
Whisper White CS.
My first thought was to create a garden scene and put
the images at the front. I decided I didn’t want the card front be
so busy that the focal point was lost.
I chose to use the beautiful
Colour Theory Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack. I absolutely love the
crackle designs in this stack!
I adhered a wide strip of the white background crackle paper the
the top part of the Whisper White CS, and a narrower strip of the solid
green background to the bottom part.
wrapped a piece of the Old Olive 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon around the
join of the two designs and adhered it at the back of the Whisper White
little girl and the standing dog images were die cuts from the DSP, but
I wanted to put them on Dimensionals over the ribbon.
I was concerned
they would be too flexible to do this, so I adhered each of them to the
stamped die cuts I shared with you on Saturday.
This idea worked
brilliantly, but I had a problem with the begging dog! I had fussy cut
this image from the DSP as there isn’t a die for it.
I added the three balloons using Dimensionals, but I
didn’t add any backing to them. I felt that, because I had overlapped them,
and I’d also used three Dimesionals, there was sufficient support already.
three tiny bows using Linen Thread, and adhered one to each balloon
using Tombow. Then I added a piece of string to each balloon, and
adhered the ends behind the ribbon.
decorate the inside of the card, I adhered a piece of Whisper White CS
and adhered two fussy cut dogs, each playing with a balloon!
That’s about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
