Hello everyone! It's Kim from Katydid Cards joining you today!
With the 4th of July just around the bend, it's time to get out the
red, white and blue and, of course, Sunsational Stamps! Today I'm using
the Patriotic Puppy digital stamp in another Triple Panel Standing Card. Here's a look
at my finished card:
month I made a similar card, but used a plain circle in the center. I
liked the result so much I decided to try it again with a shaped center
by tracing around the image in my Silhouette design screen. This is
what the cut file looks like after I sized it.
create the mats, I made a compound path of the cut file above. Doing
this converts the score/dotted lines to solid lines. This enables me to
use the Internal Offset at 1/8" and 1/4" to make the mats. Here's
what that looks like:
used Stampin' Up's Real Red and Whisper White card stocks and Candy Box
Digital Patriotic patterned paper. The edges of all the printed mats
were sponged with Brilliant Blue (retired SU) to cover those ugly white
I print and cut the dog twice; on the second I fussy cut
just the head and flag as I wanted to attach it with an action wobble
spring. I colored him with Copic markers and accented with Wink of
Stella on the stars and Nuvo Drops in black for the nose and eyes;
highlight with a white gel pen. Here's a closer look:
I made a simple sentiment, playing
off the Patriotic pup image. The
back of the card looked rather plain, so I added a single mat of another
patterned paper from the same kit.
know many dog-loving friends who would appreciate receiving this card for the
4th; but he's cute and he makes me smile so I'm not sure I can part
And, if you get the chance, come visit me at Katydid Cards, too!
