Dog Lover Birthday

Thanks for joining us for 
DD's Crafts Fabulous 50 Birthday Blog Hop!!

If you just came from Julie the  Cricut Chick's blog ( you are in the right place... if not, please head over to Debbie's blog at to start at the beginning.

Today my card is a birthday card for a dog lover! :)
This is a typical A2 card. I pulled lots of blue and browns from my scrap bin... the blue is Bazzill cardstock, and the polka-dot background paper is an old print by DCWV. The blue layer measures 4" x 5 1/4" and the patterned paper is 3 3/4" x 5". I also added a strip of blue paper (punched with a Fiskars scalloped border punch), a white satin ribbon and a brown strip across the card base.

I created this sentiment layer using "Shelley Print" and placed it in a 2 1/2" circle. After printing it onto photo paper, I placed it on a 2 3/4" brown circle and a 3" blue scallop (both cut from Winter Woodland).

My little puppy is from Create a Critter (where else??) and is cut a 2 1/2". His adorable face is using Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed Peachy Keen face stamps. I added the white details with my Gelly Roll white gel pen. A little adhesive backed rhinestone finishes off his little collar.

The inside of the card features a sentiment stamp from Hero Art's Big Hugs set.

For a bonus freebie, I've included my doggy themed sentiment for you to download if you'd like.  Simply click onto the image to open it and right click on it and choose "Save image" to save it to your computer.
