It’s another Doggie Card.  This one is for my granddaughter who just turned 2.  She absolutely LOVES dogs.

Embossing gives some great texture to the dog.

The fold is at the top and is reinforced to make it a little stronger.  The inside is finished as well.


Brooke’s favorite color is yellow.

Amazingly, considering the amount of patterned papers that I have, I couldn’t find any yellow plaid paper in my stash.  So a suitable plaid with a light background was found and then colored with a Copic Marker.  Problem solved.

I recently made a similar card for another granddaughter.  However, I followed the TEMPLATE completely on this one.  Instead of notching out some legs, a ruffled ribbon was adhered across the bottom of the card.

There is a fun challenge right now to make a shaped card.  There’s still lots of time to play along.  Click on the Badge to take you to the challenge!
