Saturday afternoon

Its been a hard week with one thing and another. Its been hard to get motivated to make any cards but last night I made two. I’ll share one with you today.

I love to make slimline cards so I’ll start with this one.

I picked up a new stamp set yesterday so that gave me some motivation! This stamp set is called “Fetch” and its from Photoplay. I love dogs so its always fun to use them in a card. My card base is by Recollections and is their white heavy weight cardstock. I cut it to 9″x8″ and scored it at 4″. So the finished base is 9″x4″. I layered some burgundy faux stitched cardstock on the base, leaving about an 1/8th of an inch of the white base showing. I then cut some plaid paper with the Whimsy Slimline Marquee die. I then cut the same die with some heart cardstock and filled the openings in with those.



I used copic and spectrum noir alcohol markers to color the images and then cut them out with the coordinating dies. I die cut a heart and stamped the sentiment on that, using some distress oxide ink to shade the edges. The sentiment I chose was “Missing you is RUFF”.

I used some Scotch foam adhesive tape to give some dimension to the window panel and then adhered everything together. I like how it turned out.

Since we are on the subject of dogs…here is a picture of our little Maggie!!

I hope you will stop by again soon to see some more cards. See you soon!
