As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!
It's my Dad's birthday next weekend, so I went with the optional 'Masculine' theme, and made him a card and matching gift tag using pups from the 'Good Times!' set. I coloured them using watercolour pencils, them carefully cut them out. I used a pawprint background stamp (from Hobbycraft) to create the backgrounds. I stamped on to the kraft card for a subtle effect, and on to some watercolour paper that I'd coloured by blending Distress Inks (Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon & Mowed Lawn)...I stamped on this using 'Rich Cocoa' Memento Ink, then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Birthday Buddies' set by Paper Smooches...I heat embossed it in white on dark brown card. I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I attached the pups and sentiments using 3D foam pads.
Here's a close-up of the card:
And of the tag:
