Pawprints on My Heart


I am a dog lover! I am such a sucker for a cute little face with a warm tongue.  When I saw the stamp set from Pink By Design Stamps called Furry friends, I knew I had to have it.
This card is a standard A2.  I used Nate's ABC's and Ornamental Iron for the card.I started by cutting this super cute image from Nate's ABC's.  I cut all the coordinating layers out of various scrap paper at 3.0 inches (real dial off).
I then detailed the cuts a bit.  I inked the edges of the assembled cut with Black Soot Distress Ink.  I used Crushed Olive Distress Ink for the grass.  I also used my white Signo pen to detail the wagon, jeans and shirt.
 The next detail I focused on was the wheels of the wagon.  I used Viva Decor Black Pen for the tires.  Next I took a small dab of Stickles for the hubs.  I love these specific details!
Next I cut the frame from Ornamental Iron at 4.82 inches.  I used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to ink the edges and top of the cut.

I assembled the card leaving space at the top for the sentiment.  This sentiment says:
"Dogs leave pawprints on our hearts"
It is from Pink By Design Stamps Furry Friends. 
The little boy cut is popped up with pop dots so it has a great level of dimension.
Below I have added the free Gypsy file for download.
Thank you for your support by leaving me comments and following!

Shelia- Yes you would need the cartridge to cut it. Both of these cartridges are awesome but Ornamental Iron is so versatile. It can be purchased at Cricutmachine.com I waited for a sale and snagged it for $29.99.
