This card was created for the Clean and Simple Challenge on Splitcoaststampers this week which required that paper piecing be a part of the design. In order to paper piece this precious puppy from Angels Landing's new June release, Toys on Wheels, the first thing I did was size it to 2.5 inches in height. I then printed it on regular computer paper, removed it from the printer, and taped a 3 inch square of Print Packs designer paper from Stampin' Up over the image. By running it through the printer again, I had the pieced puppy ready to cut out.
I then printed the puppy one last time on white Georgia Pacific card stock with the Baby Boy sentiment also from Toys on Wheels centered below it. I colored the base and wheels with a Bic Mark It and added black brads in the center of the wheels. I cut out the DP puppy and glued it to the image. With a black Sharpie, I colored the pup's nose and added a black collar. I punched a hole at the front of the collar and ran the hemp string with the button pull through it.
The puppy layer was cut 4.5 by 3.5 and a black mat 4.75 x 3.75 was added below it. They were then mounted with dimensionals to the Bordering Blue card front which had been embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.
