Yep, it’s National Dog Biscuit Day in the United States! As if America doesn’t look goofy enough these days to the rest of the world…..we have national dog biscuit day! This is my last week to hostess for a month over at: Crazy4Challenges
So the challenge for this week is to put a pet on your card. It doesn’t have to be a dog. So this is how I made my card.
Step 1: I used some discontinued: Karen Burniston dies for this card, but the link in red will take you to her online shop where she has comparable products. I like to cut all the elements I might use for the projects first so I can audition them on my project.
I used Karen’s “Buster the Dog” , “The All Seasons Tree, Props 4 set (dog bowl, ball & dog bones), “Props 2” (party hat) and “Outdoor Edges” grass. The sentiment “Happy Birthday” is a Elizabeth Crafts Designs die set.
Step 2: Make a base card by scoring an 8.5″ x 11″ pc. of white card stock at 5.5″ on the long side. Fold over for a book fold and trim to a 5.5″ x 7″ card. Stencil the front of the base card with PanPastels Aqua Marine blue and Elizabeth Craft Designs: S-016 Earth and Sky
Step: 3 Arrange from all the elements you cut in Step 1, a little scene to the front of the now stenciled card, as you like. Here’s one more look:
Thanks so much for taking a look and I hope you’ll join us in the challenge this week.
