In the Dog House

How about a Happy Birthday card using the new Dandelion Stamp CL-13 Bear Hugs Set.Originally this stamp is a bear but I did some surgery and made it into a Dog for this card.  All other stamped images are also from Dandelion Designs.  The grass is a Impression Obsession die DIE060-I.  Dog house is a 99cent cut file from the on line Silhouette Store. Ink is applied to the Darice wood grain embossing folder to achieve the look seen in the photo.  Use the Cuttlebug Dot embossing folder for the dog house opening.  Just a 1/4" SU Old Olive grosgrain ribbon and popped punched Fiskars cloud to finish off the front. 
Open the card to reveal the simple Pop Up mechanism.
On the outside card, the punched cloud uses the Sakura Crystal Gel pen to give it that sparkle.

The hearts on the dog house are also outlined using the Sakura Crystal Gel pen.
Hand drawn swirls are added to the punched clouds inside the card:
Here is the bear that became a Dog..........wished I would have had a finer tip black pen to make the outline of the belly.............but he did turn out cute. Copic colors used: Black 00, E29, E34, E31, R81.
The pot of flowers: Copic colors used are E31, E34, E27, G21, G07, R29, V05, V15, Y38

Template for the pop up mechanism: Note: card is folded in half.
 Hope you liked this card. Have a happy crafty day!
