I know my blog has been sadly neglected the last 4 months. I finally cleaned my studio and feel the creative juices flowing already! Today I made a card for my son's upcoming birthday. I am in shock, to say the least, that I have a card made more than a week in advance! So, on to the card....
I made this card to fulfill a whole list of challenges. I used a great stamp from Whimsey Stamps called Get Along Little Doggie. As always I painted him with acrylics. My papers are Coordinations from Joanns. I used a Cuttlebug folder called Spots and Dots to emboss the navy paper. I added red Stickles to the band on his hat, and light blue Stickles around the edge of the image. For the banner I simply used a font on my computer to print the letters and cut the triangles free-hand. A piece of twine from my stash anchored to 2 matte silver brads forms the banner.
I made the banner on the inside the same way. I stamped the edges of the red paper with a paisly border stamp from Fiskars. The set is called Just Between Friends. The paisley on the writing panel is from the same set. I used a Martha Stewart corner punch for the corners of the blue panel.
On the back I used my custom stamp and the same paisley from the inside.
I will enter this card in the following challenges:
