Today’s card is yet another special request (I’ve had a few of those these past weeks!) for someone who is off work recuperating from an injury - someone who is feeling “RUFF”!
Card dimensions – 5 1/2” w x 8 1/2” h.
Materials: CS – Cocoa, White (CTMH), lime green, patterned paisley (Wild Asparagus); Ink –Black (CTMH); Stamp – Beggar (Inky Antics); Punches – ¼” hole (Staples), corner rounder (EK Success), paper piercer/ mat (Making Memories), brown embroidery thread (DMC), computer font, mini pop dots, Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, blending stump, Exacto knife/mat.
For this card, it was to be from a group of people, so I added extra pieces of paper inside – attaching them to the spine of the card with embroidery thread. This way everyone can sign inside. I trimmed regular 8 ½” x 11” copy paper by ¼” inch on one long and one short side, so that the paper would not mistakenly hang out the sides or top, and be seen. I used an Exacto knife to cut around the bottom of the dog’s paws, so that I could slip the little sign under his paws so that it looks like he is holding it. For the sign, I matched the r/g/b codes on the computer to match the font colour to Cocoa from CTMH – so that it all matches! A little piercing on the photo corner to finish it off and that’s it done!
I hope you don’t have a “RUFF” day yourself!
Until next time, have a great day!
