Card #26 – Valentine Card #5

Card 26 Supply LayoutI started by assembling all my supplies.

Now you know I had to make a dog-related Valentine’s Card – didn’t you???




For this card I used light brown cardstock (4 1/4″ X 11″) for my base, dark brown cardstock for the embossed background (4″X5 1/4″) and scrap kraft and red cardstock for the oval frames.

Card 26 10I started by dry embossing my background piece out of dark brown cardstock using an embossing folder.  I saw this one the other day with dog paws and just had to have it.

After that was completed, I cut my oval frames out of the red and kraft cardstock using the oval die cuts.

Black embossed dog with inked sweaterThen I used my stamps to create the dog and stamp the sentiment.  I stamped the body of the dog with Versamark ink and embossed with black powder.  After setting with my heat gun, I stamped the sweater edges with red dye ink and the sweater print with light brown.  After this was complete, I used my scissors to cut out the entire image.

Card 26 8Since I didn’t actually have a sentiment stamp that said “I Ruff You”, I used my scissors to cut apart my clear cling stamps to make the phrase.  I colored the words with my Distress markers and stamped them on white cardstock.  I backed the sentiment banner with kraft cardstock and ink the edges with red ink.

Card 26After all the pieces were complete, I used my adhesive to attach the oval frames to the embossed background.  I used foam adhesive squares to back the sentiment banner and the dog.

Card 26 11To finish the card, I punches some hearts from the red and kraft cardstock and glued them around the card.  I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush to brush over the hearts and the word ‘Ruff’.

Here is the finished card.
