Forever Isn't Long Enough

Happy National Dog Day!
No truer words...

The wide variety of Whimsy's background stamps are some of my favorite products and I use them a lot. They're perfect to customize your own "patterned papers" like I did with my card today.

So to get this card started I stamped the Military Camo Background with a light brown ink on a 4 x 5.5 piece of kraft card stock then matted it onto an A2 blue card base. 

For the little banners I used the Quick Strips dies set and cut out one kraft, and one blue strip then stamped the little paw on each using the same brown ink as the background. Then just trimmed off the ends at different lengths and added them to the card front.

For the main image I used the Tombstone Tags dies set and cut out two of the biggest tags, one from blue card stock and one from vanilla card stock. I stamped the Best Buddies image on the vanilla tag and colored it with Copic markers. I also used a white pencil on the dogs tail and the little boys shirt and shoes.

To make the blue tag appear bigger than the vanilla one I just cut the blue tag in half and glued each piece behind the vanilla tag a little past the top and bottom edges to "stretch it"

To complete my card I die cut another one of the Quick Strips from vanilla card stock (which seems to be appearing more white in the pic) and stamped the sentiment in black.

Hope you enjoyed today's post and I hope you are soaking up your furbabies...they are the best gift in the world. HAPPY National Dog Day!
