Tall Doggie Card

If you haven't yet, take a little time to craft a card for the challenge over at Paper Playtime! :)  The theme this time is to make a TALL CARD (9" x 4" card base).  Although I can't enter (because I'm on the DT),  once I got started on the tall card, I had to try it again! :)

I made this birthday card for my twin sister (her bday is May 24th).  She is a doggy trainer so I thought this card would be perfect for her.  I got the paw print border from Give A Hoot (I welded two of the borders together to fit the full 9" card base).

The doggy is from Paper Pups (cut at 3 1/2"). I colored a rhinestone black for the eye. He is mounted to the card with pop dots.

I heat embossed the sentiment (from Hero Arts, Big Hugs stamp set) with black embossing powder and added three black buttons above the border. I tied white craft twine through the button holes and coated the knots with clear nail polish to prevent fraying and loosening. I used Studio G glitter glue to give the paw prints sparkle.

The background paper is from Cloud 9's pet pack. I added another stamp from the Hero Arts, Big Hugs set to the inside of the card. I also used my white gelly roll gel pen to add stitches on both the card front and inside.
