Party Dog

You may remember this little puppy tag from the lead-up to Amber Ink's first birthday party last month. It turned out this guy had greater aspirations than being a tag... he wanted to be part of a full-fledged card, so here he is:




A while back, I gave my husb a tshirt with a cartoon dog and the caption "party dog". I borrowed that for this card, printing it on computer and layering it on some of the same Spin Pin iPaper that the puppy's party hat and tag are from. The dog is popped up on a Cuttlebug-embossed layer of cardstock and then some more patterned paper. 
My Cuttlebug layer qualifies this card for the current CAS-ual Friday's challenge to use embossing. And it proves I don't HAVE to heat emboss, though I may be going through a bit of withdrawal. ;) And the puppy qualifies this for the latest All Things Unity challenge (ATU#38), Anything Goes.


Supplies: white cardstock, Amber Ink Spin Pin: tiny iPaper, Unity Tailwagger stamp, Brilliance graphite black ink, green Divine twine, Cuttlebug and Happy Birthday embossing folder, dimensionals





Pin It Now!

Hi Lindsey!

Oeh, love, love, love this one!! The colors are perfect and fun and that doggie is the cutest ever!! Perfect card!! You asked on my blog about which gluepen I used, it was a Scotch dual tip, one bigger, one pointed. It's okay in quality, but maybe actually not 'sticky' enough for this technique. It stays well now, but maybe it could be better, don't know, but adding the glue was easy with this one! Hope this helps!

Hugs, Wendy
