It all started with "this" card - a doggy thank you card! A dear friend asked me to make some doggy cards for 2 more black labs...even though my stamp doggy isn't a real black lab; they're still pretty cute aren't they?
They were to be a bit more Christmas related cuz they are Christmas gifts, but I couldn't resist doing Kona's (girl dog) in "pretty colors"; every girly girl deserves pretty colors, right?
Here's Kona card:
The background is a burgundy color - you can only see the top portion of the burgundy background card. It's then layered with SU's silver which I stamped with the Linen background stamp - a bit tough to see. I then layered on the beautiful designer paper and tied on some silver ribbon from SU. I stamped Kona on SU's Whisper White paper, layered on silver, layered onto a scalloped burgundy oval. I accented the scallops with a silver Marvy pen - my first time to use it - sure came in handy. And here is Sam's card; isn't he cute too?
His card starts with SU's Brocade Blue layered with SU's Night of Navy which I embossed with a texture plate by Sizzix. I highlighted the snowflakes with white craft ink to make them stand out a bit. I stamped Sam on SU's Whsiper White paper, layered onto SU's Brocade Blue layered onto some designer paper - just found it in the stash. :) I also used my new Photo Corners punch in the corner and added a white snowflake.
I sure hope Kona and Sam like their thank you cards; I made 3 of each.
Thanks for peeking in; I hope you're having a great week. Hugs, ~M.
