Pedaling Puppy (new die)

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 

We have a brand new release of dies in the online store. It's our Circus release with 16 new designs. They are currently on sale at 25% off individual dies. If you purchase the entire bundle you can save 60% off.
Our Safari dies are also on sale at 25% off individual dies.

The Circus dies are so cute for Birthday, Valentine, Thinking of You or even Father's Day cards. Just let your creativity soar. The DT will begin showing some great ideas for ways to use these dies next week. Here is one that I created using the new Clown with Balloons die. 

Today for your viewing pleasure I am featuring the new Pedaling Puppy die and I created a Valentine card. I have several little boys on my list that would love this card. I just have to decide which one will receive it. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card. 

Design Steps: 
I started off my card this week with the layout. I saw this sketch #835 on Splitcoaststampers and decided to use it for my layout.
Once the layout was chosen I selected my designer papers and that determined the card colors. I wanted a background paper that was a bit festive, and I think this paper achieves that look. 

For layer # 2, I embossed the pink cardstock with a heart embossing folder. Layer #4 is the reverse side of the designer paper I used for my background layer. 
Turquoise Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer Paper: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Layer #2: 2" x 4 1/4"
Layer # 3: 1" x 3 1/2"
Layer # 4: 1 1/2" x 4 3/8"
I cut my pedaling puppy from cardstock colors that are in the designer paper. 
I decided to use a heart for the puppy background since it's a Valentine's Day card. I used the largest die from the Heart Set. I picked a punny sentiment to pick up on the bike movement and stamped on an angle in black ink. 
Now I am ready to start card assembly.  I attached all the card layers to the card base with double sided tape.
Secured the heart with double sided tape and attached the image with dimensional adhesive. 
I wanted a bit more of a Valentine theme to my card so I used the 2019 Valentine Phrase & More die and cut some hearts and the Valentine phrase for my card. Cut those in the melon shade of cardstock that coordinates with the embossed panel and the designer paper. 
Well that's it for me for this week. See you next Saturday!
