Mother's Day Card

Here is the card I made for my Mom. I used a stamp from the 'Woof Woof' recollections set (#1305). I stamped it onto some paper that I had stamped with a Michael's $1 stamp. I cut out the fluffy parts of the dog and adhered them onto another duplicate stamped image (does that sound as violent to you as it does to me? lol!). I popped up some of the fluffy patterned pieces with scotch foam tape and glued some straight onto the bottom image. In case you didn't notice, I had to cut out the bottom image, and boy, was that labor intensive! I had to cut out some internal sections with an x-acto (sp?) knife. I used a stamp positioner to stamp the other two dogs on the card front. I colored them with some colors that I thought would make them not stand out too much. Then I colored the rest of the middle one with a color that would stand out. I typed the sentiment out on my computer and printed it out on the card front. I adhered some 'pocket full of posies' DCWV paper under my front layer and then adhered all of those to my card base.

Maybe I should mention that I designed the card front in cricut design studio using the plantin schoolbook cartridge and cut it out on my cricut.

The sentiment on the inside of the card was also printed out off my computer onto some white cardstock. I rounded those corners and adhered onto the inside of my card. I cut 1/2" strips of the same DCWV paper I used on the front and rounded those corners too and adhered it onto the white cardstock inside the card.

I'm going to enter this into The Pink Stamper's national scrapbook day challenge over at her blog.

And while I'm at it, I'm going to enter this in over on the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge blog.
