Trying Something New

A friend and fellow Rose, Kym, does lots of these beautiful 3D cards. Olga Rose asked her the other day where we might find some of the sheets she uses. She was gracious enough to share a few places, and I thought I would try it out.

It just so happens that tomorrow is my DH's birthday, and I wanted a card to give him from our furry baby, Jessie. We always kid that we should have a Lab in each color, so I thought this would be fitting.

My card base is SU! Soft Suede that I ran through the Cuttlebug in a Swiss Dot EF. I added a layer of forest green scrap card stock, and then started to build my scene. There are 3 popped layers and then the black pups head. I must admit, this was really fun! I can see me doing these in between, when the mojo is low. I layered my sentiment on some SU punches and then added piercing. The card was finished with a couple wraps of hemp twine.

Thanks for taking a look. I hope to get in some quality play time today, so I may be back.
UPDATE: You guys are tough, lol! Here is a link to the free sheet. http://www.3dsheets.tripod.com/index.html
