Hi, today I am guest designing for Liz, an amazing crafter and a wonderful friend, who is over at Liz's Paper Loft! For my project, I made a little gift for my niece, who is in love with her puppy, Blua. I thought Liz would enjoy this too, since she has an adorable new addition to her own family!
This doghouse was made with the new Cricut Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 cartridge. I just thought it was so cute, and it was fairly simple to put it together. I cut it at 5". The letters on the doghouse are cut at 1/2".
For my card, I used an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" rustic white card base, scored at 4 1/4". My polka dot layer is 4" x 5 1/4", and I added strips of red and ruler patterned paper to it before stitching around the edges. I then distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and adhered it to the card base.
To make the note paper, I just cut a square of rustic white cardstock and edged it with the ekSuccess Binding Edge Punch. I added the lines with the Papertrey Ink Library Ledger stamp set, the dog from My Creative Time's Keepin' it Classy, and the sentiment from My Creative Time's Classy and Fabulous. A pretty button and some twine finished it off!
Now, Liz has some exciting news to share with you, but not quite yet. However, in the meantime, while she's recovering, she is reading every comment! Not only is she reading them, but she's counting them too, because at the end of all of this she will have two big announcements! The first will be a winner of some exciting BLOG CANDY! The second, it's a big one... and no, she's not coming out with stamps... you'll just have to wait and see! So be sure to head over to her blog and leave a comment for a chance to win!
