Nurse Puppy - Piecing Tutorial & Card

Hi! It’s Janet back again with a video project to share with you. If you have visited here lately, you know we’ve been showing off the newest Get Well die release that Scrapping Cottage issued for Black Friday. Today, my project showcases the adorable little dog in the Nurse Puppy die set.

As the case with many CottageCutz dies, you are getting a lot packed into one die. Nurse Puppy includes the precious little puppy plus seven additional accessories related to the medical field. That's right, SEVEN! The pieces could be used separately or combined to celebrate many different events. Since there is so much in this set, my video today concentrates on how to piece together the puppy and all her accessories. Even if you don’t have this die, seeing how it comes together will help you pick up some tips that will come in handy with similarly detailed sets.
Click on the video thumbnail below to see how I put this little cutie and all her accessories together.

If this card base design seems familiar it is because our very own Design Team member Lois Bak posted the instructions for it here a little over a year ago on a project titled Center-Step Mushrooms. Lois' card base designs frequently include fancy folds and I am always looking for good ideas for unique folds. This card base is one of many that I have stored away in my archives. I thought the center step design would work great to feature all eight pieces in this die set and I wasn’t disappointed. This base can be used for any kind of card you'd like to make. If you’d like to revisit her post on the blog click on the link. She includes all the measurements, instructions and construction photos for the card base and the mushrooms she artfully placed on it: CENTER-STEP MUSHROOMS

I’ve also recorded a video tutorial of the center step card construction on my channel. Click on this link to visit that: CENTER-STEP CONSTRUCTION TUTORIAL

Thanks for joining me today here at the Scrapping Cottage. I won’t be back until after Christmas so I want to take this time to wish all of you the very merriest and happiest Christmas ever! I’ll be back on the 27th to show you a New Year’s project. 2018 here we come!
