Get Your Bark On!
This is my last card for the day. I think it will work quite well as a masculine birthday card. This is a 4 1/2"x6 1/4" card. I used cream cardstock for the base of the card, then cut some patterned brown paper 1/8" smaller and mounted that on the card base. I then used some patterned orange cardstock for the next layer, cut at 4"x5 3/4." I tied a bow with some brown ribbon around the orange cardstock and then mounted that to the card. I cut a brown square at 3 1/2," an orange square at 3 3/8," then a cream square at 3 1/4." I embossed the cream cardstock with the Argyle folder. The dog is cut from Four Legged Friends at 2 3/4." All the cardstock is from TPC Studios, except the cream cardstock and the patterned brown paper. I stamped the sentiment, from Scrappy Mom's Stamps, on some orange cardstock. I used jumbo java ink from Tsukineko. The eyes of the dog are gems and I also added some gems in the four corners of the square.
