Ruff Day?










Hello everyone! I am sorry I haven't posted for awhile but I have been getting my craft room ready for my new toy. I ordered an Imagine! I have been on the fence about it since it first came out and finally decided to take the plunge. I am VERY excited and can't wait to start playing with it! OK on to my card.


I made this card for My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday challenge. This time the challenge is to use Doodlecharms or any older cart and use the color blue. All of my cuts I made with Doodlecharms. I made the card by cutting 2 of the dog houses at 5 inches and I welded a shape to the bottom to fill in the door using my Gypsy. I assembled the card together by putting a brad through both layers at the top so it slides open. I cut the dog house slightly smaller for the front. I embossed the roof with the diamonds Cuttlebug folder and pop dotted it to the card. I cut the dog at 2 inches and added some white highlights and Glossy Accents to his nose. The sentiment I printed off my computer and matted it to add to the front. The inside I stamped using 2 different stamps to get the sentiment I wanted. As you can see I messed it up but you know, it is handmade after all and can't always be perfect! :) I hope you all will also go check out Whimsical Wednesdays challenge this week which is to make a shaped card! I will be adding this there too. I hope you all are having a wonderful day and thanks for looking!
