Happy Tails Dog Punch

 

I couldn’t wait to stamp this puppy in Soft Suede ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock. He comes with two stamps for spots; large and small, and I used the Stamparatus for perfect placement. Don’t you think we should call him Spot? It’s such an original name, LOL. Spot loved being punched out with his very own punch, and couldn’t wait to see what was next.

Spot needed a collar to settle him down, so I stamped one in Cherry Cobbler ink, and sat him in a circle of Pool Party cardstock. It was once solid, but Spot chewed a hole in it, so I evened it out with a Stitched Shapes circle die. He promised to be good, if I raised the circle on dimensionals, so I did.

 

Stitched Shapes are very popular, and Stampin Up! blessed us with a whole set of Rectangle Stitched dies in the new Occasions 2019 catalog! I used one for a Mossy Meadow layer, and one for a Pool Party layer, which are layered on a Shaded Spruce card base. This die set will make layering so much fun!

 

If you couldn’t guess, Spot is saying “Happy Birthday” (Ruff! Ruff!). I decided to repeat it in human language on the inside, using the Well Written die set, also in the Occasions 2019 catalog. I used Shaded Spruce for the words on Pool Party cardstock, cut with a Rectangle Stitched die.

 

I thought about adding something to the front, but wanted to keep it clean and simple for this week’s Global design project. Plus, clean & simple is good for masculine cards, and this one qualifies.

 

And, you can see that I found my colors at Fab Friday.
