Hot Dog, Its your birthday!

I have been having a great time playing with the new release from Hero Arts.

This cute card was made for a dog lover using the Hero Arts Cats and Dogs clear stamp set

I started with an A6 Kraft card blank. I cut some cream card stock slightly narrower than the card blank for my front panel. I stamped my birthday sentiment directly onto the card blank in Rich Cocoa Memento.

Using a Spellbinders square die (you could use a punch here) I cut an aperture into the cream front panel.

On a spare scrap of the  cream card, I marked in pencil the shape of the aperture. Using the pencil marks as a guide, I stamped out my little scene, first stamping the silhouettes of the dogs in a pale brown, then overstamping the outlines of the dogs in a darker brown. I blended a little ink under their feet to ground them and stamped the "Woof!" sentiment in dark brown.

Taking my original cream panel, I tied a piece of twine through the aperture and round the outside edge, finishing it with a button. With some foam tape, I attached the doggy scene behind my aperture and mounted the whole panel to the card front.

Really cute I think - and can be repeated with the cats from the same stamp set for cat lovers.
