This month's theme is Pets and Animals at Auzz Trinklets N Crafts and I have another cute card to show you all. This one will be going to my 7 year old cousin for her 8th birthday, she loves dogs and I thought this would make her feel very happy when she receives it on her birthday and knowing her favourite cousin handmade it for her. 😛
First I cut my card base at 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches, and folded it in half. Then I cut my card front (blue cardstock) using My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 ( 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" ).
I cut out the grass hill with Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Hillside Borders" die then put it through the Sizzix Big Shot with My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 ( 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" ).
I cut the clouds using Lawn Fawn's "Simple Puffy Clouds" die, adhered it to the card front using Tombow's Multi Mono Liquid Glue and stamped the sentiment 'YAPPY BIRTHDAY!' from Mama Elephant's "Playful Pups" with the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I stamped the trees from "Snow Day" by Lawn Fawn using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Evergreen Bough. Once cut out, I went over the trees with the ink pad dabbing them until I was happy with the result.
I stamped the dog "Lunar Animals" and birthday cake "Unicorns and Rainbows" by Mama Elephant using Memento Tuxedo Black on some X-Press It Blending Card so I could use my Copics to colour in the images. I didn't like having the cloud on the cake image, so I carefully trimmed it off using some scissors.
I adhered the card front to the card base using my ATG gun, everything else was adhered with Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue.
I added some Wink of Stella to the icing on the cake and Sakura black glaze pen for the dog's nose and eyes for some dimension.
