Ragga Mutts, Stanley

This handsome guy, Stanley, is a digital image from the Digi Doodle Shop Ragga Mutts Collection and is being sponsored on the OWH Stars and Stamps blog for the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop.  If you haven't been by there yet you will want to grab a comfortable chair and your favorite beverage because once you do you won't want to miss out on all the inspiration, tutorials and blog candy being offered on this amazing bloghop!  Last I heard there are 150 crafters participating in this great cause.

As for Stanley, my card base is Real Red layered with a slightly smaller piece of PTI White cardstock.  Next I cut a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Brocade Blue cardstock and embossed it using the Cuttlebug Stars Embossing Folder.  I cut and paper pierced the edges of a 1 1/2 x 5 strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock and wrapped red ribbon around it before attaching attaching it to the card base. 

The Ragga Mutts, Stanley, was printed on PTI White using my Epson Photo Printer and colored in using copic markers.  I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black using the Say It In Style stamp set from CTMH.  I paper pierced around the edges and layered the image on to a slightly larger piece of Real Red cardstock before attaching to the card base using mounting tape.  To embellish the card I made a pretty bow using more of the red ribbon and attached it to the card base using glue dots.

Hope you take a few moments to visit Stanley on the OWH Stars and Stamps blog and enjoy the bloghop while you are there!
