I made this silly-cute card for my friend Gabi who recently told me a rather funny story (that thankfully had a happy ending) about her family's weiner dog who got out of their yard and raced around the neighborhood. I just couldn't get the image of him racing down the street out of my head, so I got crafty!
This is a really large card -- 5.5 x 7x5 I think it ended up being, and I'm pretty sure it weighs in at 1.25lbs. Ha! Ok, maybe not that much, but it's heavy! I like using paper that has substance to it, so when I get this many layers (there are more on the inside), it can really add up.
The dog, tree, and sentiment are from Lawn Fawn, and the house images are from The Stamps of Life. I had so much fun creating this happy-go-lucky scene.
Edited to add: This is the inside of the card. The sentiment stamp is an "oldie but goodie" from AMuse. ... but this photo is missing one element that I added after the photos were taken. I decided the house looked too exposed -- and who likes an exposed house!? -- so, I used the cloud die and cut a green cloud, snipped it in half to create a flat bottom, and used it near the house like a shrub.
