Hello readers and welcome back from the weekend! I hope you found a little time to do something crafty. Today I am sharing another card that I made for the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #115. This week we have a theme challenge to inspire you. Our challenges run for two weeks, thereby giving you more time to create, so I have designed a second card to share with you this week that was still inspired by the same image seen below:
Many of my followers know that I am a cat lover, so I think all you dog fans will be pleasantly surprised with today's "adora-bull" card featuring the "Fabulous Frenchies" stamp set by Newton's Nook! I will admit, they are all very cute little bulldogs!
*A full supply list (with shopping links) is located at the end of this post.
The base of this slimline card is made from red cardstock. This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2." It will fit inside a regular business sized #10 envelope. I lined the card base with a 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of black and white gingham printed paper. I die cut four heart from red carsdstock. On each heart I randomly stamped animal paw prints in red ink. I adhered all four hearts to the center of the card slightly overlapping each one to ensure they would all fit.
I stamped all of the images (dogs and balloons) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I colored all of the images with Copic markers and added highlights to the images using a white Uniball gel pen. I adhered the bulldogs to the card using foam adhesive. I added the balloon to the last bulldog's tail. I also punched small hearts from pink and red cardstock and adhered them to the card in another balloon shape on the second bulldog's tail. I then added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to all the bulldogs for added sparkle. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment "adora-bull" in red ink on white cardstock and notched the right side before adhering to the card with foam adhesive.
