Doggy Duo Saying Happy Birthday

I recently shared two of the three Birthday cards I was asked to make for a regular class attendee. Well, here’s the final one for this special commission, and it’s this cute doggy duo.

The other projects can be seen here and here.

As they are a huge dog lover, I just knew I had to include them on one of the cards. I’ve made these dogs, cut from the the Dog Builder Punch to look like the doggy duo they have at home.

This punch has carried over to the new Annual Catalogue, so if you’re a dog lover, you would be barking mad not to have it (sorry!) It is also a great companion punch to the new Playful Pets Suite too.

The white dog has a mottled effect by using Sponge Daubers with Soft Suede and Smoky Slate ink. The collars are from Rhinestones.

Using colours from the Brights Collection, the balloons are cut with the Balloon Bouquet Punch. These are then glued together in bunches with a length of Linen Thread from the bottom balloon to the tails.

Rather than tying the other end to the tails, I made separate bows and added them afterwards.

The Happy Birthday sentiment is cut from the Well Written Dies and very carefully added across the balloons with Fine-Tip Glue. This, along with the background layer use Silver Foil Sheets.

Using Dimensionals, everything is then added to the card.

As this is a square card, so I also made a matching envelope using Designer Series Paper.
