Cards with pets

Hi, Janja is here.
Christmas is almost here and we all probably ended up with our Christmas cards.
Today, I prepared three cards with some new dies from Pets release.

- white card base: 4.25 x 5.35" (10,7 x 13,9 cm), folded
- kraft card base: 5.3 x 5.3" (13,5 x 13,5 cm), folded
- colored card stock
- different ink pads
- plastic stencil: brick wall
- double-sided sticky tape, double-sided foam tape, foam pads, glue
- glossy accents

Start this card by cutting a fish, bowl and cat. 
I used colored card stock. For greater depth, I used different ink pads. On the picture is missing a shelf that I cut out later.

Use a plastic stencil brick wall for the background.
Cut the background to size 5 x 5" (12,7 x 12,7 cm). Paste it with a double-sided sticky tape to the card base. Stamp a sentiment. 
Attach the fish bowl and cat to the shelf with foam pads. 
Use glossy accents for air bubbles.


Cut out all the pieces with the die - Rufus The Hound. I used the die - Fireplace with Accessories for small bows.

Cut two patterned papers of this size: 4 x 5.2" (10 x 13,2 cm) and 4 x 2.9" (10 x 7,3 cm). I printed the sentiment in Word. 

For the final touch, draw a shadow around the dog with a brush. Apply a glossy accents to the water in a bowl.


Cut out and assemble Miss Kitty. 

Prepare background and two frames. Cut out two circles and stamp a sentiment. Attach frame and Miss Kitty to card base as shown using double-sided foam tape. 
Finally, add a little pearl to the flower.

Have a nice day.
