SU Happy Tails Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I created for the AAA Cards CAS Challenge #161. If you would like to find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or join in visit their website here. These challenges are all about Clean And Simple (CAS) and the requirements for Game #161 are ‘Along the edge’ with an optional twist of Cats & Dogs (well, I wasn’t going to miss out on that!)…

If you would prefer to watch me make the card, you can scroll to the end of this blog post and watch my video tutorial.

As you would expect I included the optional twist! Here is my entry…

Let’s make it…

Well, this isn’t going to take long is it?!

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock and the card front is a slightly smaller layer of Whisper White cardstock. I have stamped the paw image from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails Stamp Set repeatedly along the bottom of the card front in Early Espresso ink.

The dog image (or at least a bit of it!) is also stamped in Early Espresso ink and I have coloured it in using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set. It is stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the small label from the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Labels Dies. This is adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

With these ‘Clean and Simple’ challenges the key is knowing when to stop!
