The above card was made for my son's birthday ~ given to him by one of his fur-sisters! LOL
The image was cut from A Child's Year Cricut cartridge, along with the shadow feature (PTI Dark Chocolate).
I used ink blending techniques with different colored Distressed Inks to give the background layer some shading and color, as well as around the outside of my boy/dog cutout. I then stamped used Background Text Styles (PTI) with chocolate brown ink. I LOVE this look! I stitched around the outside of this layer with a tan colored thread.
To do the sentiment, I used an embossing pen to write the sentiment (it's not very straight though!) and then and embossed it with white embossing powder. I also stiched the sides of the brown cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
