My mother-in-law and her twin have a birthday coming up soon. My son wanted to make a card for each one of them.
This is the card for his grandmother. She has a dog and he wanted to include the dog on her card.
Size: Horizontal top fold A2 card
Extra Details: We started by making our card base from some heavy weight water color paper. Next, I die cut a cross stitched rectangle from some teal card stock. I used some stitched hillside borders to create the open area. Using Versa Mark ink, I added the bones and paw prints to the teal panels.
We used kraft paper to stamp the puppy face and sentiment. I used a white pigment ink for the fingerprint on the puppy face. The sentiment is stamped in Versa Mark ink and silver heat embossed. I then die cut it with a banner die. The puppy face is fussy cut.
Then, I worked on the shaker part of this card. I cut two rectangles from some clear page protectors. I used my Fuse tool to seal the two layers together on three sides. I added the sequins and snowflakes, and then sealed the fourth side.
Using some strong adhesive, I adhered the shaker panel to the card base. I layered the teal panels on top of the shaker panel. Lastly, I adhered the puppy face and the sentiment banner.
