Woo hoo, it’s the long weekend, I don’t have anything planned but it will be nice to just relax, and get some cards done 😀 I have a LOT of birthdays in May and I’m already almost behind 😬 so I better get busy. Well enough about next week this week I have this really fun card. I needed to make a card for the Crazy4Challenges and this weeks challenge is a design/sketch challenge. I decided to turn the sketch sideways so my card does look a little it different.
This is the sketch
And here is my card

I really like liked how this colour combo turned out. The patterned paper is from Wild Asparagus, and it is double sided. The backside is the yellow that I used. The rest of the cardstock is from Stampin Up and the colours are listed below.
Starting with the cardbase, I knew I was going to use the sketch for the front, and I wanted to make a square card so this is how I started
I die cut all the pieces to decorate the front. The greeting I bought second hand, but the bows are from the Gift Pivot Panel die set from Karen Burniston, and “Dad” was stamped with a retired Stampin Set and diecut with an older S.U. Tag die.
Now for the inside. I decided to use the Parcel Pop up, and I wanted to add 2 dogs that resembled his dogs. I added photos below on my process, but I recommend watching this VIDEO, Karen shows how to assemble the mechanism and add it to the card. I made a different card base than she did but the rest is pretty close.
The larger White dog is a retired die set called “Buster the Dog)
The little dog below is from the Cat and Dog dieset that is currently still available.
To decorate the inside I decide to use the Argyle Border Blends
