Hello and welcome! Todays card is extra special to me because it's inspiration comes from my big fuzzy Bernese Mountain Dog, Angus! I finally bought myself the Bitty Ball Pop-Up from Karen Burniston and let me tell you, I kick myself for not getting it sooner!
black fur to the feet. For the tail I die cut two pieces, one black and one white. Bernese Mountain Dogs have long haired tails that kind of look like a fan. So I added a white end to the black tail and with my scissors added little cuts to look like fur.
I die cut out two pieces with black cardstock to make the ears and with my scissors added little snips to make the ends of the ears look like hair.
I used white paint and carefully painted between the trapezoids where the black cardstock shows through so that his face looks solid white.
I added glossy accents to the eyes and nose, then once that was dry I added white highlights with a white Gel Pen. I die cut out the mouth with black cardstock and using the smaller oval, cut out a pink tongue. I had to trim it down to fit the mouth.
I cut an A2 card base using Kraft cardstock from My Favorite Things. I had a small 6x6 paper pack from Doodlebug Designs called Puppy Love and used the orange cardstock with little dog bones on it for the background paper. I used a piece from the same pack with had grass on it and cut that out using the MFT Slimline Grassy Hills Die-namics. I added the Happy Birthday sentiment from Karen Burniston using a glitter blue cardstock.
I have to say, I am super proud with how this little guy turned out. I hope you find him as super cute as I do. Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
