I love it when a plan comes together!
Again I've stuck to my usual not conforming to spacial restraints and this card is yet another that won't fit in a standard envelope, but isn't it just too fun?
The first thing I did was color this little Puppy and Her Bone from Karen's Doodles in copics, then I assembled all the elements surrounding it. I decided newspaper was a must (a necessity for toilet training). I recently found an old 1938 book of sheet music in a flea market, and while flipping through it, noticed this song, "Oh! Dem Golden Slippers" (excellent chew toy) as well as the menu sheet; which I placed onto Word and typed in various main courses that appeal to a dog. The 'What Can I Do?' book cover is a free download from Two Crazy Crafters and it just has 'I'm up to no good' written all over it.
The ribbon is made from Twill Tape that I stamped paw prints on with DI. If you look closely inside the bow, you'll see a dog bone. I actually dragged out the Sculpey Oven Bake Clay and shaped a bone, baked it for 15 minutes and painted it with DI as well. The little tag was added at the bottom to summarize the theme that we have going on over at Karen's Doodles, which is Something For Mom. My mother is a huge animal lover and despite what those loveable little critters do to house and home and all contents within, she loves and adores them to pieces. So I thought this would be so fitting to make for her. She also collects vintage books, toys and whatnots from days past, so the marriage of the two on this card is perfect.
Hope you've enjoyed your little visit here and thank you for coming by to check out this card. I appreciate your kind words and encouragement and I'm always happy to take pointers and advice.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping...
