Paw-some Birthday card by Jennifer Jackson

Paw-some birthday card!

Hello! Jen here today with a fun French Bulldog birthday card using our Fabulous Frenchies Stamp Set! To make this card I started out by stamping the cute little bulldog and birthday hat with waterproof ink on watercolor paper. I colored them using inktense colored pencils and a water brush, choosing a blue and brown color palette. Then I cut them out using the coordinating Fabulous Frenchies Die Set. For my card base I used a dusty blue cardstock and then I created a paw print panel by repeatedly stamping the paw print from the Fabulous Frenchies Stamp Set on a panel of kraft cardstock. I added a piece of black and white washi tape up the side for a pop of contrast.

I added the colored French Bulldog and birthday hat to the card, layering them over a white circle and a banner with the sentiment "Have a paw-some birthday!" from the  Fabulous Frenchies Stamp Set! The black banner was cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set. For an extra little finishing detail I added the striped bit of scalloped paper, cutting out a scrap using our Sky Borders Die Set for the scallop! I love little extra touches like this and it's a great way to use a scrap of patterned paper! 

I hope you enjoyed this project today! This cute little pup will be perfect for sending out birthday wishes!
