The use of a punch this month prompted me to use this adorable Happy Tails Bundle included the Happy Tails stamp set and Dog Builder Punch.  I love texture and I did my best to bring a lot of elements to this card.  I started with a Crumb Cake Card stock card base and layered some Soft Suede cardstock with the Basketweave Embossing folder…oops, it recently retired.  Layered on top is a piece of the wood grain paper from the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper pack over some Basic Black cardstock.  They were wrapped with some Black twine (also recently retired, yikes!  Sometimes it is hard to keep track of all the items when we launch a new Annual Catalog) 🤪 You could substitute many options on this card.

Using the Stitched Be Mine Dies gave this card some softness with the stitched hearts and stamped images of the paws.  And, the Very Vanilla 3/8” Lace Ribbon provided even more femininity.

Stamping the sentiment and using the Layering Circle Dies for both added a nice focal point on the card.
