We all need cards for different occasions and I decided to put together a little set of four co-ordinating cards using the very cute Bella & Friends stamp set set and also used some sentiments from my Teeny Tiny Sentiments.
I adore the Bella & Friends stamp set. It puts me in mind of my own dear little dog Lenny. Lenny is now 15 years old and still as cute as a button, although sadly age has not been kind. He is completely deaf, almost totally blind now and extremely arthritic.
But I like to think of the mischevious little chap that wagged his way into my life all those years ago. As a pup he had the same cuteness as the little dog featured in this adoreable stamp set.
So, these are the four little cards I created for my boxed set.
I created layers of colour co-ordinating card stock and Designer Series Papers using colours from the Brights and the Subtles collections. I stamped the images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and heat embossed the images using some clear Stamp n Emboss powder to create the shiny little dog. I then coloured the focal point using my Stampin! Write marker pens and die cut the toppers using my Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. The toppers were adhered over some ribbon onto the layered base using Dimensionals to give a little height to the focal point.
Then I stuck the collective layers onto cards from the Note Cards and Envelopes packs in Whisper White.
Here are the dimensions for the little box which is made using thick Whisper White cardstock:-
Long side score @ 1, 4 3/4", 5 3/4", 9 1/2" inches
Short side score @ 1/2, 1 1/2", 6 3/4" and 7 3/4" inches
Top layers measure : 4 3/4" x 3 1/4" inches
4 1/2" x 3 1/8" inches
4 1/4" x 2 7/8" inches
And before I love you and leave you, here is a photo of my dear little Lenny in happy and healthier times :-
Thank you for stopping by today - hope you like this little project and my gorgeous little boy.
Bye for now.
