Belated Birthday Greetings
Hi guys - This card was made for a card swap in August. I decided that I wanted to do something a little bit different and use a cartridge that's not often used or acknowledged. This cartridge is as cute as it can be and has lots of appropriate sayings for all sorts of occasions.
I took the frame feature on Paper Pups and used the hide contour feature to hide all the cuts on the inside. Then I copied and flipped the copy in order to weld the two sides together. All the designs were made to fit a 5X5 card and envelope. I did all my design on DS because Gypsy didn't have the option of hiding contours at the time.
I added another page and put the shadow for the cut on the next page. I added all the shadows that I could fit on the page (one of the glories of DS and gypsy) in order to get a set of 10.
Finally, I cut the outline on another page. Before cutting, I outlined the cut with markers and then cut the outline. I don't have anything fancy to do this with. I used the Cricut markers that fit into the housing. I used brown to do the outline. I then filled in the eyes and nose with the same brown marker. Using a red sparkly gel pen, I filled in the mouth because I wanted it to look like the dog's tongue.
I typed the inside on my computer and added paw prints from clip art. I got six on a page and matted it with a paw print paper.
By the way, the bone was cut from Paper Pups also and the sentiment on it was hand written. Enjoy - :-D
