Measurements: image – 2” square plus 1/16” border, brown panel – 2 ˝ x 4 5/8”, sentiment panel including border – 2 7/8 x 7/8”, blue paw print panel – 3 5/8 x 2”
This dog reminded me of our little Westie (now gone to doggie heaven) he loved it when we'd open the small window in the pickup so he could stick his head out and be blowin in the wind! However if you blew in his face he'd get mad and then sneeze, go figure!
The window flipped out so he was protected from bugs and flying pebbles!
Now to explain the black spot on the dog's tongue - my granddoggie has a black spot on his pink tongue and every time I color a dog's tongue I think of Jack! He's a golden retreiver and the world's best pet therapy dog who is retired now. Jack is also a cancer survivor which is very rare for a golden, the vets all think it's because he is very, very loved!
-Prismacolor pencils, baby oil and paper stumps were used to color the image using the Gamsol technique. Baby oil replaces the Gamsol/mineral spirits.
-Faux brads are die cut from the Cuttlebug Tiny Tags set and glued to the card then covered with glitter pen.
-all layers but the brown were ink distressed, so were the bones.
-Sentiment was printed on the computer.
-The out of the box feature is very easy by cutting to the image with the regular paper cutter on the front, marking the image on the back while holding to a light source then use the paper cutter again to cut to that mark. Scissor cut the image out. My paper cutter is a guillotine style. I used a Coluzzle and craft knife to cut between the images. I do have a pictorial on my blog if you need photos, click here. It’s a direct link to the tutorial.
-The bones were embossed with a metal ball stylus and I use a folded paper towel as a cushion.

Roxie - paws-itively wonderful! I have two kids with dogs that would love this to pieces. What a great card. Looks like a fun sketch. We'll see what happens. So many challenges, so little time. :)
