Friends Forever

Do you have any friendships that need some attention? I am very fortunate to have a best friend who I have known for over 30 years now. It is so important to honor a friendship like this by sending a card every once in awhile. So this one is for you Pam!

Measurements: Whisper White card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches folded in half at 4 1/4; Blueberry Bushel 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches; Whisper White 4 1/4 x 3 inches and 5 x 2 1/2 inches.

In order to know where to stamp the little paws, I lay the 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 inch piece of Whisper White on the card base front. Then I used a pencil to make an outline.

Placing the paws looks hard at first but if done systematically they will look well spaced. Stamp the paws in Memento ink. Start with the 4 corners. Then stamp on the long side in the center.

Next stamp 2 paws between the corners on the short end.

Finally, stamp one paw in between the paws on the long side. Viola!

Stamp the dog in Memento ink on the end of the 5 x 2 1/2 inch piece of Whisper White. Punch out with the Dog Builder punch. Turn the cardstock around and stamp another dog on the other side. Punch out.

If you would like to add the spots or Dalmatian markings, refer to the Blog from February 4th entitled Doggone Cloudy Day.  You may also add the collar in Real Red.

Lay the two dogs in place and using Memento ink stamp the sentiment “Friends Forever” on the left side.

Now stamp the “Ruff Ruff” in Memento ink and the hearts in Real Red.

Adhere one dog with adhesive directly to the stamped piece. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the second dog.

Adhere the dog panel to the Blueberry Bushel.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the panel to the card base.

So please take the time to let your long time friend know how much you value them by sending them a handmade card! Keep a look out Pam, the card is in the mail!
