Get Well . .. Puppy with Bandage

 Get Well Pup. . . This Cutie is from the Cottage Cutz Valentine release, Puppy with Heart 4"x4". I decided to add a bandage in the pups mouth instead of the heart. The Pup was highlighted E33 Sand Copic Pen. I also added the Cottage Cutz Flower 3 3"x3" Die
 As you can see I created a large bandage pouch style matching envelope. The bandage was made with Bazil Bling card stock which gave it a shiny plastic look of a bandage. The pup is tucked into the pouch just so his eyes look over the edge of the bandage pad.
 The Bandage pouch is 3 1/4" x 7" with a 4 1/2" pocket front and a 2" x3" center pad. I used a medium corner rounder on the four corners, and slightly arched the ends on the outside corners of the bandage. The pad has random holes and the GET WELL was added to the pad. The mini bandage is 9/16" x 1 7/16" and the center pad is 1/2" x 7/16". I used a piercing tool to get the holes in the mini pad.  The pups head is cut a second time and raised on foam tape. Glue the mini bandage into his mouth in place of the heart. (than you will need to add a square of foam tape under the bandage. This adds a nice dimension to the head.
Using the pup to gauge how deep the pocket should be, use foam tape to raise the pocket. Because the pup is several sheets of card stock and foam, the pup will be thicker than the pocket (that is foam only thick). The pup will fit tightly in the pocket so his heads can be set to the edge of the pocket.

Thanks Barry . . . .
