Lawn Fawn World Dog Day Shaker Card | CraftyPaws

I can’t get enough of the adorable pups in the Lawn Fawn “Critters at the Dog Park” stamp set. They are all so cute! I made this card using the boxer in the playful stance, making him look like he is jumping around playing in the sand at the beach.

close upI used a gold paper from an DCWV Shimmer Stack for the sand because it had a wonderful subtle shimmer that was reminiscent of sparkly sand at the beach. I tore a little v-shaped area out to create a window (cased from a card made by Jenn Shurkus) where I could put a shaker pocket that I made with a bit of plastic from a sheet protector and my fuse tool.  Inside the shaker pocket, I added pearlescent seed beads, chunky gold glitter, and tiny sea shells from an old broken necklace (I love upcycling things like this).

I wanted the scene to have a vibrant background, so I created a rainbow colored sunset using the following Tim Holtz Distress Inks with blending tools: Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Seedless Preserves, and Picked Raspberry. I love the deep, rich colors, and who doesn’t like a rainbow?For the ocean, I just used a scrap of dark blue card stock from my scrap box and used my White and Clear Star Sakura Gelly Roll Pens to create a shimmery sparkle, the way the ocean might look at sunset.

I colored in the boxer pup stamp with the following Copic colors: E50, E53, E55, E79, W1 and N10.  I fussy cut him out and then used some strategically placed foam adhesive to pop his head and body off the card base. I used Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue to adhere his feet directly to the “sandy” beach. I think the two levels on the pup helps highlight his playful stance.

20150730_085722For a bit of fun (and to fulfill the challenge that my crafty friend Ashley (YT: Sparkly CanadianCraftyGirl) and I had set for ourselves to use ribbon and enamel dots in this Lawn Fawn collaboration project), I pulled an airplane wood veneer piece from my stash, colored it with a black Sharpie, and prepped a snippet of an “I {heart} My Pet” ribbon to look like one of those banners that you might see an advertising airplane towing at the beach in the summertime. 🙂

Lastly to finish off the inside, I just lined a black card base (I think vibrant cards like this look great and pop off of black card bases) with some dark blue and pale blue card stock. Then I did a second generation stamping of the boxer pup in the corner with VersaFine ink to add some fun.

The following is a process video of creating this card:
