Slimline Birthday Puppies Card

Happy Tuesday Cottage Cutz Friends!
Melinda here with you, and today I am sharing a fun and cheerful slimline birthday card. Here's a look at my finished project. I used the sweet little Christmas Puppies Dies from this year's Christmas release.
My card is pretty straightforward. It is a side folding slimline card. I started with a white card base. I cut a piece of paper to 8 x 9. I folded it in half at the 4" mark along the 8" length. I then cut a piece of red cardstock paper at 3.75 x 7.75. After I added that to my card base, I cut out the slimline circle windows base out. I then cut out a piece of the cute dotted patterned paper from doodlebug. I used some foam tape to give the slimline circle window base some lift. I then went to work cutting out the cute little puppies from some plain white cardstock. I then colored them with my markers.

Here's a closeup of the Happy title and the cute puppies in the first - top circle. The Happy title comes from the Fifties Phrase 1 die. I cut those pieces out in plain white and then used my markers to color the backgrounds.

Here is another closeup showing the cute puppy on the second window. I colored him with my markers and then put the paws along the rim.

In this final closeup, I have two more of the cute puppies. I colored them with my markers along with the Birthday sentiment. As for the hearts, I cut out the Whimsical Hearts Slimline die. You get a TON of hearts as part of the negative spaces. I love using them. I colored them with my same markers.
