When I saw Sandy Allnock’s card last week for the OWH Red Friday Blog hop, I was in love! I immediately imagined all the things I could highlight with that fabulous EK Tools Film Strip border punch, and I began my hunt. Luckily, I was able to find it for $6 (normally they are between $16-$18+) at my local Michaels so I snapped it up.
I started with a red card stock base and used some black card stock for the top film strip layer — just like Sandy 🙂 Then I wondered what little images I could pop into some of the frames. What better than stamped puppy images? Well, for me, nothing’s better. LOL I stamped out the little poodle from the Penny Black “Mimi in Paris” stamp set and the little dog from the Tiddly Inks “I Wuf You” stamp set. I colored them up with the following Copic Markers: Poodle: E02, 31, and 33; and Brown and white dog: W1, E23 adn E25.
I fussy cut out the pups and positioned them, just so, between the frames. I left room between the dogs so I could add little punched out red hearts, which I made shiny with Ranger Inkssentials Glossy Accents. Remember, you can’t use glitter on OWH cards so no sparkle allowed. LOL
For the sentiment, I hand wrote “i wuf you” with a White Sakura Gelly Roll Medium Point Gel Pen. The lower part of the black card stock layer was looking a little plain to me, so I searched through my washi tape collection and found a thin black and white one of a film strip (sorry I don’t know the brand) and a red, black and white terrier one made by Craft Essentials. I felt like this card was just meant to be. Don’t you love it when that happens?
With very little coloring and fussy cutting, this card was pretty quick to make. With the flexibility of adding all sorts of different images in the film strip frames (I’m going to do one with the cutie patootie kids from the Mama Elephant “In My Heart” stamp set next), different versions would be easy too. I see a lot of these cards in my future for my next OWH batch of cards!
This card is being entered into the Operation Write Home Red Friday Blog Hop Challenge
