Curious Puppy

Another cute Bugaboo image for the Die Cut Diva's Challenge - June Bugs.
I know that technically a snail is not a bug, but it does as much damage in my gardens as a bug!  And besides, I could not pass up the opportunity to use my new digital image of this Cute Puppy.

 For this card I cut out a fence with a MFT die, put some grass behind the fence with a die cut using a MFT Icicle die, and then put the puppy and grass in front of the fence.  The puppy is still attached to the "grass" that I colored with Copics so just part of him is fussy cut, down to the grass line which I cut with decorative scissors.  (Hope that makes sense.) I colored so much grass, I added some darker clumps with a darker green Copic (like weeds in my yard!) For the blue "frame" around the "hello", I cut out a rectangle from the turquoise paper with a Die-namics Rectangle Stax then glued in onto the lighter blue base.  The "hello" and the clouds are more MFT and Memory Box die cuts.   Two little white flower brads hold the front of the card in place when it is open.
Here is a side pic:
I'm not trying to brag, but I think this card came out so cute.  It will be fun to send off to one of my grandchildren.

  3. I wondered if you had cut the puppy out. I LOVE how you did this. I don't have any more decorative scissors because I just never used them anymore, now I'm thinking just one set would do. LOL.

    LOVE this!
