I had a request to make a card for a girl that had a yellow lab on it. Now if you work with punch art you know that you do your best to make a project look right but they are usually not exact. So I set off to make the puppy and found that I could use So Saffron for his coloring and a basic dog for the body. Here is what I came up with:
I believe I showed this little dog in Chocolate Chip a few weeks ago. The only change I made was to the ears. They needed to be floppy instead of short. For the base card, I used Real Red which is also the color of the apples. I made the apples using the cutest little punch from a set my friend Val gave me (Thanks Val!!). I punched them and added glitter of course. The tree is a Sizzix die I have for my big shot. I picked it up several years ago. I cut it out of Chocolate Chip and Garden Green to layer it, then added the apples to the tree. I then used a piece of Whisper White for the background. I chalked a sky and the grass onto it and then attached the tree to it. The dog is adhered using dimensionals to give some depth to the card.
Here is a close up of the dog. Now I know you can see any imperfections I happened to make but remember they simply add character to the card! Now maybe he does not exactly look like a yellow lab but he is so cute I am sure the recipient will love him.
This is the inside of my card. I used 2 different stamps to make my greeting. While my card stock and punches are all from Stampin' Up!, these stamps are not. Again I had these prior to becoming a demonstrator. Anyway, I like them because it stamps the outline of the letters and allows me to color the inside using my trusty colored pictures. I love to color and have ever since I was little so it was a pleasure to get to do this.
Well, I am off to work on another project. I hope you like the card I shared today. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of the dog. Thanks for stopping by today. See you tomorrow.
