Colour INKspiration #CI54 - Happy Tails Card

Hello and welcome to my blog today!

Time for another Colour INKspiration creation and blog hop!

I have enjoyed creating a simple card in Basic Black, Whisper White and Real Red. But the reason I have created this card was very difficult. My Mother in law had to put her elderly and  ill dog down in March and I created this to give to her.  Tansey was a sweet little dog, a Fox Terrier cross with a lot of zest for life.

I wanted to keep this card clean and simple.

I started with a card base of 21cm x 14.9cm scored and folded in half. 

I then cut two pieces of Whisper White. One at 14.4cm x 10cm and the other  14.1cm x 9.7cm.

Then on the smallest piece of Whisper White I stamped the Dog Kennel and sentiment below the kennel in Memento Tuxedo Black on a smaller piece of Whisper White card stock I stamped the Heart, Dog and then the spots on the dog as it comes as a separate stamp. 

I stamped the solid heart image into the Memento Black outline stamp. I then used the Dog Builder punch to punch both the the Dog and the heart. I attached these to the card front with dimensionals.

Then glued the two Whisper White pieces together  with the stamped images on the top and then glued that to the Basic Black card base.

This was a very simple and quick card to make. I love this bundle and any dog lover would love to have a card made with this set. I am sure my Mother in Law will love it too. We all loved that little dog.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate it greatly.

I hope that I have inspired you to be creative today!
