Card from Riley the dog for Zara

My stepmum also wanted me to make a card from their dog Riley for Zara as they have a great bond with each other so here is what I came up with.

The give a dog a bone backing paper is from a Nitwits collection called Farley Friends
The kennel and dog are also from the same collection. I added the name Riley with gold peel off letters on the kennel sign to personalise it a bit.

I then resized the photo of them both together and also the kennel image and cut out with my circle and scalloped circle nesties. I then added gold peel off spots to the scallops to give a collar type effect.

I die cut two elegant corners using a Cuttlebug Elegant corner die. Die cut the number 1 from the Olivia Cuttlebug alphabet. I have used 3d foam pads to stick the image and the photo onto the card and then used a shaper tool to give the dog some dimension and stuck to the card with pinflair glue gel.

I added gold fine line peel offs around the edge of the backing paper and added a message and two paw prints on the base of the card using 3d foam pads.

I hope Brenda is happy with it and that Zara likes it too. Happy 1st Birthday Zara
