Welcome to the new Cardz 4 Guyz challenge # 295.  For this challenge, Deb chose the theme of D is for…………  The sky is the limit for this challenge!   As long as your project is for a guy of any age and has to do with a word starting with D, it works!  When you finish here, I hope you will pop over to the Cardz 4 Guyz challenge site to see the projects from the rest of the design team.  Then, create your own project and add it to the gallery!  Fun!

Here’s my D is for……. Dog card:


When I was growing up, we had a mini-schnauzer, and this cute little guy always brings back happy memories.  He’s so cute, I had to use him on the inside and outside.  The dog on the inside looks like I totally meant to put him in the corner to fit under the sentiment.  However, I really didn’t have a choice on the placement of the pup.  I’m running out of the dog DSP (designer series paper) and could only crop one without a tail.  Whatever works, right?

Measurements and Such:

  • The Real Red base measures 5-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches. I scored it at 4-1/4 inches to create a tent card.
  • The Basic Black cardstock layer measures 5-3/8 inches by 4-1/8 inches.
  • The piece of red striped DSP for the envelope flap measures 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches.
  • I usually use thin borders for mats, but I had this piece of the background DSP already trimmed to 5-1/8 inches by 3-7/8 inches, so I really didn’t have a choice in the orientation of the card.
  • The black DSP square measures 2-5/8 inches squared. I popped it up on dimensionals and adhered the schnauzer directly to the DSP using 9my fav) multipurpose liquid glue. I didn’t add dimensionals under the pup so I could add a bone trinket and still have the card fit in the envelope.
  • This fabulous Happy Birthday sentiment comes from the Party Puffins cling stamp set. The playful font coordinates perfectly with the rest of the elements on the card.
  • I stamped both the inside and the outside sentiments using the Momento Tuxedo Black ink pad.
  • The Real Red banner measures 1-1/8 inches wide. I trimmed the white banner to 1 inch wide.
  • I thought the sentiment banner really needed a little something, so I added a matte black dot to the bottom corner.
  • After I adhered the pup on the inside to the white cardstock, I adhered that layer down to the base.
  • Finally, I trimmed the envelope flap and punched a 1 inch circle of the black DSP for the envelope seal. I started making envelope seals during COVID so I wouldn’t have to keep writing “no saliva was used to seal this envelope”. The XYRON create-a-sticker is perfect for these seals.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and seal set.
