Year of the Dog Sister Stamps

Hi Everyone, I am very excited to again participate in the Sister Stamps Zodiac hop for Release #12: Year of the Dog and Year of the Rooster. The card style I chose is a Double Slider card. Instruction to make this card can be found here on Split Coast Stampers tutorial site. I changed the measurements to accommodate the card and the specific tabs one each side. this card will fit into a A2 envelope as finished measurements are 3-1/2" x 5-1/2".
Copic colors used:  E27, E31, E34, W5, W7, R81, R30, R59, R46
Here's a side view of the dog where part of the body is popped with foam squares:
The Dog Kanji word is something found on the Internet, imported into SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot) and cut using my Silhouette.
When the side tabs are pulled, the computer generated message is revealed on both sides:
The template:
Optional: cut 4-1/4" x 10-7/8 to get 2 cards from one A2 (8-1/2" x 11") sheet of paper.

Items to complete this card:
Note: EK Success Modern Cube punch was used to originally make the punched black decoration images. But to make the strip fit across the 4-1/2" length, I recreated it in SCAL so the size can be more flexible. In fact, only one of the squares cut 2" x 2" was used for the Dog Kanji word (card stock changed from Brown to Cherry Cobler).  The side tabs were also created using half of the cube by using the SCAL program.
Card stock: SU Cherry Cobbler, Recollections Gold Metallic, Recollections Vanilla, Black, Neenah White, SU Old Olive
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Accys: Impression Obsession Grass DIE060-I die, Lifestyle Crafts Sequence Embossing Folder, SU Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon, Foam Squares, 1-1/4" Square Punch

Stay tuned tomorrow for the Year of the Rooster image being released at this same time as the Year of the Dog on April 1st.. Hope you enjoyed this project. Happy crafting to all of you.

Love your double slider card using the dog stamp, Patti! I like how you used and re-sized your EK Success punch in SCAL...hey, you are really getting to be a pro at this! Especially like how you did the tabs on your card...very cool!

OMG Patti, you did it again! Love this card! Though in Hilo we have a plastic bag ban, so maybe I gotta start hoarding them so I can continue to do this double slider!
