June Scrapaholic Card Entry
June has just whizzed by and I haven't accomplished half of what I wanted to. I had several challenges that I wanted to enter. I managed to get a card done for DCWV's Scrapaholic Card Challenge for June but sadly not the layout challenge. I used "The Pet Stack" for this card which came together rather quickly. Base card of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I cut a piece of the "checked/striped" pattern measuring 5 1/2 x 2. The paper with the dogs measures 5 1/2 x 2 1/2. I cut a small strip of black cardstock for the seam measuring 5 1/2 x 1/2. I cut a piece of blue cardstock measuring approximately 3 x 2 1/2 and just started taking off small amounts until it fit the picture the way that I wanted. I printed 'Ruff Day?' on the bottom and adhered it to the top right corner with the speech bubble directed at one of the dogs. I used black and white baker's twine and strung it across the top of the card. I used rolled up glue dots to attach it. I fussy cut tiny dog bones from one of the papers in the collection and also used glue dots to attach them to the baker's twine. Done. I hope you enjoyed my card.
