Rich brown heavy card stock, beige card stock, X-press It (or any Copic Compatible card stock), Copic markers, Colored Pencils, double sided tape and heart shaped sequins.
- Cut a rich colored heavy brown card stock at 5 1/2 inches x 8 8nches. Scor the paper at 4 inches to create a top-fold card. Cut beige card stock at 5 1/4 inches x 3 3/4 inches. Cut another beige layer for the inside of the card so you can write a personal note. Adhere the beige layer to the top of the card using double sided tape.
- Stamp the row of adorable little pups from Paw-fect Pooches Cling Stamp Set using Tuxedo Black Dye Ink and Copic Compatible white paper. Stamp the Bone on Copic Compatible paper. The sentiment "woof" was stamped on the bone. The pooch images and bone were colored using Copic Alcohol Ink Markers. I used C1, C3, C6, E30, E33 and E35. I wanted to add more texture to the images so I used some dark grey and dark brown colored pencils to the darkest shadows. I love adding extra texture but if you try this, make certain to apply the colored on top of your Copic or alcohol ink markers and not under the markers. You don't want a waxy build-up on your marker nibs.
- The pooches and bone were cut with the coordinating die cuts. I used a large ball tip from the Flower Shaping Kit to lightly apply a circular pressure on the underside of the head, body parts and ends on the bone to add some dimension. I adhered the pooches to the card with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive and added some Copic green with my markers for the grass. I like to use both the flicking and dotting technique to create grass. I used G17, G21, G40, G45. I used the Designer Adhesive to add the brown shadow of the bone to the card stock. I popped up the colored layer of the bone using foam dots for dimension. I read comments where our viewers would like to see some simple cards that can be mailed easily. Although the bone has dimension, This card will go through the mail but you will need to create a custom envelope.
- The final touch is to add heart shaped sequins to the card using the Dries Clear Adhesive. The sequins were perfect because.... who doesn't love little pooches! Woof!
I hope you enjoy this collection as much as I do!
