BIRTHDAY NOTE CARDS

HEY BLOGGIES,

Today I want to show you a set of blank cards I made for a friend of mine who loves German Shepherd Dogs (GSD) and is a foster and rescuer for them also.  It is her birthday.

I made this small set of blank cards for her to use any way she wants -- as thank you cards, thinking about you cards, happy birthday cards, etc.  She gets to choose how to use them.

I created the dog art with a water pen and inks.  Then I layered them onto colored cardstock and VOILA!!



Some I layered the watercolor paper onto the cardstock directly.  On others I cut around the image and layered that onto the colored cardstock.



I really like the contrast between the dark cardstock and the watercolor water when the image is fussy cut out.

 Each is a bit different since they are hand drawn.  I think it is like dogs themselves...they look similar but each is an original.  :-)





The container for the cards is made from a 12 x 12 piece of designer paper that I folded into the size I needed.  Then I added a ribbon to secure this little gift.



Oh, did I mention I found a German Shepherd Dog pen to go with this set??!!  It finished this set off perfectly!!

Thank you for stopping by. I am working on two more birthday presents for family members and will post them when completed.
