I had SO MUCH FUN making this card. Seriously. It cracked me up, made me smile, made me feel good overall. I hope it does that for you, too!
Those dogs… and the cat. And those glasses!!!! I can’t even go on and on about how adorable I think this turned out!
Watch me make this card in this quick VIDEO!
The trend is slimline cards. That’s fine by me. Gave me lots of space to showcase these cutie animals and their eye-wear. My nephew’s birthday is coming up and I wanted to create a fun card for him, with blues and greens as the color palette. He wears glasses and I thought he’d get a kick out of this.
All of these products are from Catherine Pooler Designs. When I first saw the dogs/cats with a chance of eye glasses, I didn’t wait around. Good thing, because I think this set sold out pretty quickly. It will be back in stock, I’m sure. And I highly recommend it! The colors I went with are Mardi Gras, Fiesta Blue, and Suede Shoes. I love how it came together!
The card is so long that I had a hard time getting the full card image in the frame! But I love every inch of it. Along the bottom, I used a border die-cut from CPDesigns. It was easy enough to line it up twice, to make sure the border was long enough for the card. You can see how I do it in my quick VIDEO, along with how I created all of the glasses in each color.
To finish, I used ‘happy’ from a sentiment stamp. And the ‘birthday’ is a die-cut sentiment that went with CPDesgn’s new instagram bundle. I colored my paper with Suede Shoes and cut the word out to match. A few sequins just for fun – and done!
Hope you are loving this as much as I am! Happy weekend!
