National Walk the Dog Day!

Dog gone day H2O

The sentiment inside says “Make it a Dog gone good day!”  So this week the challenge is to put a dog or any other kind of pet on your project this week!  You could even put a picture of your pet on the card.  I own a white dog that even my Vet has no idea what breed mix he is.  But whatever he is, he is the smartest, easiest going dog I’ve ever owned.  He knows the names of 25 or so of his dog toy’s!  Below is my Shelby with a raw hide roll.


The Steps:

Step 1:  The card measures 5.5″ x 5.5″ tent fold card.  So first cut a 5.5″ x 5.5″ square from white cardstock.  Then using Susan Tierney Cockburn’s “Clouds and Grass” stencil and Blue PanPastel I stenciled the clouds.

Step 2:  Make a tent fold card by scoring an 8.5″ x 11″ at 5.5″, fold over and trim to the finished size of a 5.5″ square.  Now adhere step 1 to the front of the base card.

Step 3:  Next, I used Karen Burniston’s “Buster the dog”,  Susan Tierney Cockburn’s Country Scapes – “The Woods 1” (the tree and bird house).  The grass edge is from Karen Burniston’s “Outdoor Edges – 3 die set” for the grass.  The “Happy Birthday” is from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I cut and assembled all the elements and adhered them as shown:

Next up is you!  I can’t wait to see what pet you’ll put on your card.
