Playful Pets Card Sketch #2

Good morning friends! Did you enjoy yesterday's card sketch?  If you created something with it, I'd love to see what you made!  Join THE STAMPIN' CHIC'S FACEBOOK GROUP and share your project in the comments of my post showing the sketch.  There's a PRIZE PATROL waiting for one lucky participant! :-D 

I seem to have been all about sketches this week, so I decided to create today's project based on the sketch I posted on Saturday.  This is another fun one, that I really enjoyed creating with.  I'm also using the Playful Pets collection again, to get as much use out of it as I possibly can.  There are so many fantastic possibilities with these products!

I started with a Real Red Card Base (5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"). 

Then layer on a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Basic White Cardstock. 

Next attach a 5 1/4" x 1 1/2" strip of Designer Series Paper aligned with the bottom of the white layer. 

The 5 1/4" x 1/2" strip of Basic Black is aligned right against the DSP layer. 

In Saturday's post, I told you that the banners were kind of a cheat.  The Real Red layer is 1 3/4" x 3 1/4" and the Basic Black layer is 1 3/4" x 1 1/4".  It's just a little scrap that fits behind the red layer.  To get them both cut the same, I lined them both together at the bottom, then cut a slit up the center and cut from each corner to the top of the slit, at the same time.  This insures a uniform layering.  Pretty sneaky, huh? hehe

I fussy cut the dogs and attached them with Dimensionals. 

For the sentiment label, I masked off part of the sentiment and stamped the "I hope your day is" in Tuxedo Black on a scrap of Basic White, and then punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. I'm sad to say that my favorite punch is retiring with this current annual catalog. :'( So sad! 

I carried the masked sentiment idea to the 5 1/4" x 4" Basic White inside panel.  This time, masking off the top part and completing the sentiment on this inside.  This is a terrific trick for having a coordinating inside and outside sentiment. 

The dog bowls were stamped in Tuxedo Black and then colored with Real Red Stampin' Blends Markers. 

I wanted to bring in a little of the DSP to the inside, so a 5 1/4" x 1/2" strip made a nice addition. 

Card sketches are a fantastic way to create terrific projects, whether you're a beginner that is unsure of yourself or a seasoned crafter who needs a little boost.  I just love them! This one is brought to us by my friend Jo.  Thanks Jo! :-D

I hope you'll try this sketch out.  Remember, sketches are just a guideline.  You don't have to follow them exactly and you can change ANYTHING you want to because it's YOUR project! :-D
