A boy and his dog.

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good week. Not long and it will be the weekend and not long after that it will be the end of term - not that I'm counting.

As I have said  before there are a few people leaving work at the end of term. I decided to make a card for the  male teacher who I have been working with this term. I bought the August issue of Making Cards Magazine and I decided to use one of the images that came with the magazine.


This is just a 6" x 6" card made from a single sheet of A4 brown centura pearl card. The doggy papers I have had in my stash for a while waiting for a good use and this was it. 


I cut the image out with one of my Matting and Basics Spellbinder dies. This meant that it was easy to cut mats for the image. There was a space to the side and that is where I decided to put the sentiment cut with another Spellbinder die. I did ink round the image while it was still in the die. This was the first time I had used a brush to apply the ink and  I loved the soft effect. 


I finished off the corners of the card with some dots of  Antique Green CS PVA glue. 

I will give the chap a bottle of wine to go with this card he has been a pleasure to work with. 

I hope the end of the week is kind to  you. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
