Horses and dogs

This is a commissioned card made today for a friend to send to someone who loves horses and dogs for her 70th birthday.

I used a piece of Hunkydory spotted card to make the A5 card blank. The papers were from PDA card and craft (long ago - bought lots and love using them). I printed the greeting only to a piece of Hunkydory card, shades of beige, quickly pouring on gold detail embossing powder and heating before die cutting and embossing using a todo label die, with the next size up to put behind it.

I added two bands of white with black and gold spots, the Jolee felt dog and glittered paw prints and the little dog's head.

I stamped the greeting inked with versafine black onyx and embossed with detail gold for the inside of the card, die cutting and embossing with a larger todo label die, matting this on to the insert. It's a shame that the photo doesn't show how golden it is irl.

This is for:
