Dog Lovers: Just Fur You!!
Hello! Christina here today and I have a card for all you dog lovers out there featuring Dog Club Etched Dies from Spellbinders® Die D-Lites™ line. It is quick and easy to do – simply use color cardstock to create my dogs. Let me show you how!
With Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Die #8 (the smallest die size is #1), die-cut the base card by folding an A4 piece of card in half and keeping one of the long cutting edges of the die off the folded edge
Nest Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Die #8 and Die #7 together, secure with washi tape and die-cut with white cardstock to make a card panel. Slightly trim the edges enough to leave a small border when placing on the card base.
Die-cut Classic Ovals LG Etched Dies Die #5 into a piece of scrap cardstock in its centre to use as a stencil for inking. I use Distress Ink in Broken China for my background.
Place the oval stencil onto the centre of the Hemstitch panel, and lightly ink through the shape. Keep the stencil in place to stamp a track of paws. Remove the stencil and you should see paw prints on the inked oval area.
Add a little Broken China ink to an acrylic block and spritz with water to make watercolor paint. Load color onto a paint brush and flick to add some splatters to the front of the card panel. Dry with your heating tool.
Cut the dog shapes from Dog Club Etched Dies set in desired cardstock colors. In my doggy details, I added a black eye to the paler shapes and a white eye to the darker ones. For a coat design on the smaller dog, I added black patches against its white body.
When adding the dogs to the card panel, I placed the largest dog at the back and with foam pads, I raised the others towards the front. Stamp a sentiment and adhere the card panel with foam pads to the card base. Finish with Nuvo Drops for a little bit of sparkle.
I hope you enjoyed this fun little tutorial. For more inspiration and ideas, visit Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls.
