I wanted to create a valentine that would appeal to men and thought a cute \”scene\” card featuring two dogs trying to get together in a florist shop would be fun. One dog is peering out over the window sill as the other dog is using a crate to try and climb inside.
To create my scene, I combined the January 2019 My Monthly Hero kit with two pups from MFT\’s Lucky Dog stamp set. I love both sets! First I created a background using Tim Holtz Stamper\’s Anonymous Bricked Layering Stencil and Simon Says Stamp Hybrid Stone ink. The stencil was not quite wide enough for the full card so I stenciled the right side and blended toward the middle, then stenciled the left side blending so that my A2 card was fully covered. I think the bricks turned out well.
Next I stamped (on Xpress It paper), colored (with Copics) and die cut the images with my new Gemini Junior. I then embossed the sentiment on the window. Using foam tape, I adhered my scene to the background.
- I am very pleased that this card was selected “Top 5” in the Allsorts Challenge:
- And Pile It On Sweet Sprinkles Award.
