It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday where every challenge is an inspiration list based on a selected holiday/festivity from the traditional to the unusual. Challenge projects must include at least three items from the festivity inspiration list. Your project does not have to go with the challenge theme. You can just use 3 or more items from the inspo list for your creation.
Today's festivities are inspired by International Dog Day which takes place on August 26th. International Dog Day is a special day to celebrate all dogs around the world. Read more HERE.
The challenge runs from August 5th - August 15th.
I like to create a card for our challenge that goes with the theme. For my dog-themed card, I used Funky Fossil Designs Pawsome Heart stencil to create an embossed background of paw prints. I framed the square with a scalloped square die from Spellbinders. I stamped and fussy cut one of the dog images and the party hat from Catherine Pooler's Peeking Pets stamp set. I colored the hat and adhered but to the embossed square. I gave my dog sunglasses which are die cut from Sugar Pea Designs SugarCut Basic Bookmark Dies. I used SSS Holographic card stock for the lenses for a very cool affect. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Birthday Sampler stamp set.
I used dog, paw print, twine and texture from the Inspo List.
