Dudley made a Father's Day card!

Well, I did really - but Dudley watched me very closely and gave it his 'nose dab' of approval every now and then:
I used:

- 5.5" x 4.25" white card blank, side opening

- piece of yellow paper from Lawn Fawn's 'Really Rainbow' paper pad, trimmed to 5.25" x 4", glued onto the card front

- snippet of white card, cut to 5" x 3.75" and set aside for now

- snippet of the Lawn Fawn yellow paper, stamped using a shirt stamp from Woodware's 'His Birthday' set of stamps and fussy cut

- then used a striped snippet from the same paper pad to stamp the tie, fussy cut it and glue onto the shirt front

- found another snippet in the same paper pad, this time red with a faint stripe - which I die cut using a Creative Dies 'Wonky Square' die - not that the faux stitching shows up too well in the photo

- checked where I wanted the image piece to go before stamping the sentiment using a Misti, Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink and two different stamps. The 'You're so Special' is from the Hero Arts 'Truly Appreciated' sentiments set and the word 'Dad' came from the Woodware 'His Birthday' set of stamps

- glued the white panel on top of the yellow one

- adhered the red striped panel in place then added the shirt and tie to it

- finally .......... let Dudley blow a kiss into the card after I wrote it for him

Len loved it!

And the Woodware stamp set is yet another NBUS item, so I'm entering this into Darnell's NBUS Challenge #15. It's a great encouragement to break open something unused for sure!

  13. Well done, Dudley! Great card for your Dad. xx

  14. You're a better dog mama than I am, Di! I didn't even think to make Kevin a card from Nellie. It's so terrific and I can see why Len loved it. It's clear that you and Dudley had fun making it! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS. Keep safe! Hugs, Dolly

  15. ps Sorry I signed it Dolly. I had just been over at Lolly's blog, lol! Typing While Old!!

  16. Wonderful card, Di! Such a cheerful one with a sweet little shirt and tie - super creative! I hope your day was wonderful!

  17. haha!! I read carefully through the explanation to find the part that Dudley was responsible for but I agree that the nose dabs and doggie kisses suffice. Great job Dudley...and a card that any dog would be proud to present!
