Just for You Card

An extra project for you this week ...

This card uses the Strawberry Kisses Christmas set - Just for You.

I started this card with a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of red card stock.  I folded it in half so it has a side fold.  I attached a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of decorative background paper, centered on card base, with Extra Strong Permanent Tape.

Next, I placed a piece of 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" black card stock (centered) on 3" x 4" piece of green card stock, and again, used the Permanent Tape to attach them.   I put all of this to the side until needed later.

I put three of the images on a piece of Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock.  I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color all of the first image.  Color middle and bottom presents on second image.  And finally, color paws and bow, and bottom package on the third image.  These were then cut from the card stock.  Here's a picture to refer to ...

Remember to color the images before cutting.  Trust me ... I know this for a fact!  LOL!

Here are the colors of the Spectrum Noir markers used to color the images ...

dog - IG1, IG2, IG3, IG8
bows, berries, stripes, dots - CR9, DR4, DR5, DR9
stripes, holly leaves, dots - JG2, LG5

Ink around all of the cut-out images with black ink.

I attached the dog to the center of the black card stock with Permanent Tape.  I layered the pieces on top of the dog with Double-sided Adhesive Foam.

I put more Double-sided Adhesive Foam on the back side of the green card stock.  I attached this to the center of the decorative paper.  With that, my card was done.

Hope you enjoy this card.  I had a great time making it.

Until next time, I am ever searching for inspiration.
