Scottie Dog Birthday Card

     Welcome to  Mondays from My Cricut Craft Room where you are limited only by your Imagination, lol. On Mondays the Design Team is challenged to use either the Imagine carts, CCR images or the cartridges that come with the E2. If you have been following me you know I love to use the Imagine pattern carts to flood fill my images or to use the paper as my card base. This week I used the Imagine cart Heirloom to create my card base and insert with the Just Because Cards cartridge. The card and insert is on page 37 and cut @ a height of 5.50". This beautiful musical background from Heirloom is on page 10.
    I also cut some small rectangles (1:2 and 2:3) that are preloaded on the Imagine for the outside of the card as well as the insert tag using the color palette with this cart. The Scottie dogs are cut with Layer 1 + 2 as well as the shadow @ 1.50". I did use a black card stock for these cute little guys. The shadow was also shaded with distress inks.
     This is the insert that goes with this particular card. Again I used the preloaded label on the Imagine but this time I flood filled with the same musical paper that is on the front of the card. I used some distress ink on the edges and added some pearl dots to the edges. The sentiment is a rub-on as well as the Happy Birthday on the front of the card.
     Here's a close up of the embellishments on the card. I used some i-rock rhinestones for the collar and a pearl for the eye. I wanted the dogs to show up so I used a small prima flower with a pink brad for the center
and a few silver stickles to bring out the center.
      This is a Birthday card for my Mom who turns 87 on April 6th and she just loves anything Scottish. She is having difficulty seeing so I wanted to add some elements she could feel. This is why I used a silver wire to "tie" the two dogs together.
     Are you inspired to try this card? I certainly hope so. Now be sure to head back over to Ericas Craft Room  and see what my fellow Design Team sisters have to show you. While you are there, check out Erica's store for any of your crafting supplies.

Mary, this card is so adorable. I think flood filling images with patterns is my absolute favorite feature on the Imagine! Those little Scottie dogs are too cute!
