In today’s post, I’ll be sharing two Simple Cards with the Playful Pets Paper!
So are you a “cat” person or a “dog” person? It seems like most people are just one or the other. While generally speaking I’m more of a cat lover than a dog lover I’m also a total sucker for cute puppies. I have to be honest, I wasn’t immediately in love with the Playful Pets suite but once I started playing and had made a few Simple Cards with the Playful Pets Paper it really grew on me! This is actually the second pair of projects I’ve made with this designer paper. You’ll find a link to my first project at the end of this post.
Now today’s cards were one of my three July/August 2020 Club and Free Card Kit projects.
The kits include one of a variety of designer paper patterns from the Playful Pets designer paper pack. The papers are either dog-themed or cat-themed. Each kit includes a punched cat or dog to coordinate with the paper.
I especially love the designer paper patterns used on the two cards I’m sharing in this post. How can you not love the little dog bones, paw prints, and other little images in this paper! So cute right?!
In this close up you may be able to tell that the punched dog is popped up on dimensionals.
There’s also a dimensional behind the little heart in the lower right hand corner.
For these cards, I’ve also used the twine and ribbon in the Playful Pets Trim combo pack, to create the collar. Some of the kits include this simple black and white bakers twine and others include a bit of the red-stitched trim.
The sentiment element is made using the Ornate Thanks stamp set, Timeless Label punch and the NEW Banners Pick a Punch. With this new punch, you can make 3 different sizes in two styles of banners! You’ll be able to purchase this awesome new punch starting on August 4th when the August to December mini catalog goes live!
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my simple cards with the Playful Pets paper.
