I created this card today with pet lovers in mind… What dog aficionado wouldn’t be happy to receive a greeting with paw prints across the front, inside and over the envelope? I love dogs, but the part of this card that jumps out at me is the “EAT CAKE” right in the greeting 😉
Even better? That greeting is from the Everything Nice stamp set that I received as part of an award at the Stampin’ Up! Convention this summer! I love free stamps! (especially when they refer to cake) If you’re interested in becoming a demonstrator, there are only a few days left til the $85 Mini Starter Kit special is over!
The other trick that’s hard to see? The full card is 5×5″ to fit in the Square Envelope. The Designer Series Paper is cut to 4-3/4 x 4-3/4″ and has the Scallop Circle Big Shot Die cut out of the center, so that the Whisper White layer shows through the hole. The nice part of using the ‘negative’ paper from the Scallop Circle Die is that I still have the large Razzleberry Lemonade Scallop Circle to use on another project!
This card is very similar to a set of Big Shot Butterfly cards that I created last summer. Check out the layout–look familiar? 🙂 No use reinventing the wheel, all I had to do was update the colors to the current 2009-2010 In Colors and add the cute paw prints.
