Tomorrow there will be several make and takes at Memories of time. We’ll be sharing some new products from Winter CHA! Here’s the card I will be doing:
I decided to mix some old with the new and give Pat the Dog a new twist on life! This set can be used for more than just Valentine’s Day or a ruff day. By adding a sentiment from the newly-released Winter CHA Big Birthday Wishes stamp set, Pat turns into a great Birthday set as well! The Pat the Dog set comes with some great images and I LOVE the footprint border stamp – that’s what I used for the background of the card, and with my new EK Success border punch and Cosmo Cricket Sunday Picnic paper, I decided go with a Vintage Circus look for the card and I’m pleased to say that I love the way it turned out! I think this would make a perfect card for ANYONE, male or female, young or young at heart! The sentiment “Wishing You the Happiest….” is actually a straight stamp, but because it is a clear stamp set you can manipulate the stamp to just about any shape you want! I wanted it to look like a banner from an old circus poster, so I decided to give it a flowing curvy shape, then I cut around it, inked up the edges and used a black marker to give it a bit of stitching to make it really pop! No buttons, no ribbon, no frill, it’s just fun! Oh, and now that I think of it, Pea-Nut would be PERFECT with this style!
