Congratulations on Your New Fur Baby!

Hello Cottage Cutz fans!  It's Jeanne today with a card featuring Dakota the Husky, a die exclusive to the Scrapping Cottage website.  He has been featured several times this week.  The die comes with reindeer antlers and a Santa hat for use at Christmas but you can also use him anytime of the year!
What a fun way to say congratulations to a friend on their new fur-baby!  This is a simple card to make but is adorable.
I started by die cutting Dakota from white and grey card stock and my frame from red.  I used a black marker to color his nose and eyes.  I decided to make this a very graphic card using minimal colors.  Since Huskies are grey and white I opted for a black (grey), white and red theme.

Next, I cut a panel of black card stock slightly smaller than my frame and heat embossed the sentiment in white.
I glued the frame to the panel along with Dakota.
Then I dry embossed a white panel that is 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches using a paw print embossing folder.  I tied a hounds tooth ribbon around the panel.
The frame with Dakota is popped off that panel using foam tape and I glued the whole panel to a red top folding A2 card base.

Dakota is only available at the Scrapping Cottage and the new Autumn dies are on sale for a limited time, so be sure to visit the website!
Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
