Yappy Birthday!

I made this card for my nephew's birthday this year.  I figured this was a good fit for him since he loves his dog soooo much!!  His dog is a black lab, but I thought this dog was really cute.

ALL paper with the exception of the polka dot paper is from The Paper Company's Value Packs.  The polka dot paper is from DCWV's Nana's Kids Matstack.

For the base of my card I started with a piece of blue 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" cardstock and folded it in half.  I then cut the polka dotted paper at 4" x 5 1/4" and attached it to the base of the card using my ATG gun.  I then used a puppy paw print stamp from My Pink Stamper's "Even More Punny-licious" stamp set with a Stampin' Up! Classic Basic Black ink pad to add little puppy prints all over the page.  I also used the same stamp pad with another stamp from the same set for the sentiment on the card, "Yappy Birthday".

I cut the puppy, the present and the party hat all at 3 1/2" with my Cricut Expression using my "Paper Pups" cartridge.  I attached them all to the card using 3D-Dots.

I wanted to add a little something to the envelope as well so I used the puppy paw print stamp with the black ink pad to make it look like the puppy had walked all over the front and back of the envelope. (Only the back is pictured here because there were addresses already printed on the front.)

I really hope my nephew enjoys this card as much as I enjoyed making it!

Happy Crafting!!!!
