Congratulations Dog // Card Creation11:00:00 AM
Hello there crafty friends! I hope you're having a great week! I have a relatively simple card that I am sharing with you today. Recently, my grandfather adopted a puppy and I wanted to send him a card to celebrate. Now, they don't usually make sentiment stamps that read "congrats on your new dog", but I decided I could stretch my stamps a little bit further and make something fun! Let's hop right in to this whimsical card.
I first got a piece of white cardstock and cut it to be the size of my card front (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). Next, I needed to cut out a stencil for the size of my hill. I used a scrap piece of patterned paper and free handed a hill shape. I used my Lucky Clover distress ink mini to blend a beautiful hill. I used my LePen fine tip marker to add details to my hill.
Next, I used a Hero Arts stamp set to stamp this adorable dog and his balloon. I lightly watercolored him in. Be sure to use water safe ink! Next, I had to add a sentiment. I wanted it to be big and bold. I used a KaiserCraft stamp set and made this beautiful blue banner. I added a little more flair by cutting a fish tail into the end. This always adds the perfect touch!
To complete this easy card, I used my LePen market again to draw some clouds. I love that the clouds sort of match the animation of the rest of the card. I trimmed them out and scattered them around the top. I mounted the card front to a card base, A2 sized of course! Then, the card was complete! Just a cute card to extend some stamp life. I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!
