Stampin' Up! Pampered Pets Birthday Card


Happy Thursday!  We are getting so close to the weekend!  :)

The card I'm sharing with you today uses that adorable dog from the Pampered Pets stamp set, and a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  This fun Designer Series Paper is from Pattern Party 12" x 12" DSP.  Love it!

The layout of this card was inspired by this sketch and photo at Fusion Card Challenge.  
I decided to flip the sketch and made it a birthday card for one of my daughters' friends.

Basic Black Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
DSP ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Basic Black ~ 5/8" x 4" and a scrap
Real Red ~ small scrap for the sentiment
Basic White ~ 4" x 5-1/4" (inside) and a scrap for the dog

1.  Stamp the dog using Tuxedo Memento Black ink on Basic White Cardstock
2.  Attach the strip of Basic Black CS to the DSP
3.  Use 2-3 Glue Dots to attach the ribbon over the strip of Basic Black CS
4.  Attach the DSP to the front of the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals
5.  Color the dog using Basic Black, Real Red and Smoky Slate (I used blends)
6.  Use coordinating die with the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine to cut out the dog 
(or fussy cut with Paper Snips)
7.  Stamp 'Happy Birthday' using Versamark ink on Real Red cardstock, then set with the Heat Tool
8.  Trim around 'Happy Birthday' using Paper Snips or a Paper Trimmer.
9.  Then, mount the Real Red on a piece of Basic Black and trim again. 
10.  Finish attaching the layers on the front of the card base

For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment and food bowl on Basic White using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Color in the bowl with Real Red.  Then attach the piece of Basic White Cardstock to the inside of the card. 

For the envelope, stamp the back view of the dog on the flap, then color it in with the Smoky Slate and Real Red.
