I’m back with my post for today – again sorry I didn’t get it up sooner – I wasn’t expecting to not have access last night.
This month my hands-on class was “Love Your Pets” and we focused on projects featuring cats and dogs. You might recall the dog and cat cards that I designed for our visit to the Ronald McDonald House – I decided to use that same card design for this class but step it up just a little bit. Click here to see the RMHC post.
These cards use a Crumb Cake card base, a layer of Baja Breeze card stock and Elegant Soiree Designer Series paper. The circles are cut with the Big Shot Die-cutting machine using the Circles #2 die. The images are stamped in Soft Suede ink on the Very Vanilla circles.
For the Dog card I added Linen Thread around his collar. The easiest way to do this is use a paper piercer to put a small hole at each side of the dog’s collar. Then I use a floss threader – the kind your orthodontist or dentist gives you to help get floss through tight places or around braces – pull the linen thread through the hole with the threader and then tie in the front.
The cat card is basically the same layout but turned in the other direction.
Isn’t she a cute cat with her new fancy collar and tag?
I’m happy with how these cards turned out. Next week I’ll be going to the Baltimore regional and I still need swaps so I’ve decided to make some more of these for my some of my swaps.
