Thank You Card

It's finally stopped snowing and we have a temporary reprieve. Monday we are supposed to get some more snow. This last storm was so bad that the snow plows were ordered off of the roads because it was too dangerous for them to be out. Until the roads are able to be plowed we are all stuck at home. That's fine with me. I view this as an opportunity to head into my studio and start working on my projects. There's good in everything, you just have to look for it.

This is a card that I made for my husband's co-worker.

Poodle Thank You Card:

Using the Sizzix poodle die cut one white, one grey and one pink poodle out of card stock.

Assemble the poodle using pink for the feet and the collar and grey for the face and legs. Use a black marker to color the eyes, nose and to draw a mouth. Using narrow pink ribbon tie a small bow and attach it to the poodle's tail. Use opal glitter glue to highlight the poodle's feet and collar.

Using the Cuttlebug thank you embossing folder emboss a piece of pink card stock. Lightly sand the embossing to highlight it. Attach the poodle to the embossed card stock using foam dots.

Using the Sizzix and the Hello Kitty decorative flower strip cut flowers using pink and green card stock. Cut off the flowers from the pink card stock and glue them over the matching green flowers. Glue small golden beads to the flower centers. Highlight the edges of the flowers with opal glitter glue.

Fold a piece of ivory 8 1/2 by 11 inch card stock in half and crease using a bone folder.

Glue the flowers along the edge of the card stock.

Cut a piece of brown card stock to frame the pink card stock. I made mine 1/4 inch larger on all sides. Glue the embossed thank you to the brown card stock. Attach the brown card stock to the card using foam dots.

Tie a small bow using brown and pink dotted ribbon and glue it to the top of the card above the embossed thank you.

Using the Cricut George cartridge cut a 1 inch Thanks out of brown cardstock. Attach it under the embossed thank you.
