Puppy love… a dog in your life brings great joy. This is a card from a fur baby.
The adorable dog face with its moving ears, along with the front sentiment die and large paw print die-cut are all from Lynda Kanase’s i-crafter Puppy Face Wiper Inset set.
Watch the assembly video before putting together. The video recommends decorating the front and back of the card before adding items to the inside.
I masked off a banner on the front of the card using low tack paper tape. Next, I did a light spritz of a brown sparkle spray to create a sand like texture. Remove the tape and glue die-cut sentiment strip in place.
I used a left-over strip of decorative paper and two 1/8-inch tall strips of cream cardstock to finish the front of the card.
The card back uses another decorative paper scrap and a die-cut paw print that has its paw pads inked. I found that by attaching the tiny paws pads to a piece of low tack tape, I could easily ink the pieces with a sponge dauber.
I found that the puppy face dies have stencils within them that I used to ink with a white gel pen make highlights.
I added the “love you” inside the card using a Karen Burniston word set.
As with all my cards that are sent in an envelope, I have decorated the back flap with an embossing folder and a paw die-cut. Both the embossing and die-cut were inked with a dark brown ink. The card fits into an A6 envelope.
