I really liked Debbie Hughes card and did indeed check out Pinterest for examples, and WOW, such great paper cutting items. Many way too complicated for a girl like me, but I did take some inspiration.
I wanted to make something more than a heart shape and decided to do an animal shape. Since I volunteer at an Animal Rescue, I decided to make a Labrador dog. I found a silhoutte on line and printed it up and used it to make an outline on my card. Well it was a little more complicated than I thought. Besides moving parts around, and cutting more and more shapes the glueing was very tricky and got a blob on the top. It dried pretty good, but kinda ruined the background. As you can tell I used a lot of hearts, tools, utensils, a bird, Santa and his sleigh, apple, coffee mugs, a bird, a banana, and two puppies! You name it. Small stars for his toes. a knife for his tail.
He still looked somewhat hard to figure out, so I ended up adding a bunch of dots to fill in the blank space. If I look hard enough, it looks like a dog with Botox lips wearing a turleneck and sunglasses. Or as my sister said, looks like a dog or an ugly cow. LOL
I normally would list all the supplies here, but I pulled so many dies out I could not figure out which ones I ended up using. But a lot of them were Memory Box for those who care.
My lamp made it a little bright but I used Kraft cardstock and black cardstock. I also used a Pico Embellisher in a dark dark navy color for the dots.
Thanks for looking!!!
