WOW; I haven't been able to post in ages! We've been very busy but I've also been very ill! :(
I've finished some Valentine card requests, but needed to take a moment (while I felt decent) to whip up a card for the Penny Black "Let's Get Dotty" challenge. We'll see if you think I met the requirements...dots!
Well..that dog has dots...even on her cheeks!! I don't know if it's a he or she...can't see those parts, but for us tonight...it's a girl! This is also a b-day card for a party our teenage daughter is going to this weekend.
This flower and dots are on the inside of the card. I made the flower with a Sizzix Die then colored it pink with SU! Chalks. The top flower was yellow and I made it green using my Copics to match the ribbon on the outside of the card.
Here's the full card using Junkitz Salsa Celebration paper; I have a 6x6 pack that I love to turn to for b-day cards; it's so fun and colorful.
My base card was made using Gina K Designs 120 lb. Pure Luxury white; WOW; this is some serious white card stock. I bought it as they say you can color on it with Copics and it won't bleed through the paper - WOO HOO...of course, I forgot to look at the back side of my doggy to see if the markers bled through; but that's okay. More reason to stamp and test it out! LOL I used SU! Pixie Pink, then the Junkitz paper which I ran through with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder. The wide green polka dot is actually ribbon from a gift I received at Christmas!
I added some bling (Dazzling Diamonds) to the dog's collar and to the flower; hard to see, but nice IRL.
Here's the inside of the card - I dressed it up too - that's becoming so popular! We're going to buy a gift card and tuck it in under the flower with some removal adhesive - what a great girly card, don't you think?
It's so good to see you again; I hope you're having a great week. Hope to see you again soon. Hugs, ~M.
