This is big news in our dog-loving family. Seriously! Big! News!
It had been two years since my aunt and uncle had said good-bye to their beloved Max. I know what a difficult thing this was for them. I was sooooo happy to hear about the arrival of a new fur baby in our family. So....
I had been mulling over ideas for the current brown-orange-and-kraft color challenge over at CASual Fridays... and making a card to welcome Kanine Kody seemed like a perfect reason to play along.
I decided to check out handmade dog cards on Pinterest and was inspired by the card shown here... knowing that I wanted to use a little orange heart in place of the button. However, I had a few challenges when it came to the paw print. I don't know if there's some sort of paw print die out there but, if there is, it's not in my stash. Nor do I have a small oval die/punch. So, I played around with punches and dies that I had to come up with this little paw print. Not bad... if I do say so myself.
I debated about adding some orange around the popped panel but, in the end, decided to save the orange for that teeny, tiny center heart.
Often times, I look at the card I'm CASEing and my CASEed version and like the CASEed card sooo much better. Surprisingly, I'm actually pretty happy with my version. The only thing I would change would be to add a bit of linen thread across the bottom of the back kraft panel, below the sentiment. But, trust me, that bottom panel's not going anywhere. LOL
I'm hoping this little card is CASual-Friday-worthy because those DT cards are gorgeous! Regardless, I know my aunt and uncle will appreciate it. :)
Tomorrow's a huge day around here. My father-in-law is celebrating his 93rd birthday! And, as if that weren't enough of a big deal, our pup is celebrating his 100th human-year birthday. Yep, there's going to be a some serious celebrating going on here tomorrow!
Have a great week! As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
