ooh la la

I found this little card that I haven't shown you yet. While pottering about on FB my good friend KIRSTY posted about a little free digi image that she had just made. It was so cute I just had to colour him up using my FLEXMARKERS... click that link to find the markers still half price for the rest of  Jaunary.

I started with white card that I ran through a cuttlebug embossing folder, then I edged it with a blue marker. Next I printed the dog several times onto acetate,then I printed the dog bigger on smooth white card and coloured him in. As Kirsty provided a coloured and non-coloured version I finally printed the coloured version onto smooth card and made that into a tag.

( go grab your free digi) 

Then I started to layer, but I needed a sentiment. I tried several on the top but they all looked bulky. I knew that I couldn't stamp on the bottom layer as it was all bumpy from the embossing folder. So I got out my TRUSTY SAFMAT This is fabulous stuff that pops right in the printer, you then print out whatever you want onto it , peel off the backing and stick it to your project. Because it is a clear film it kind of disappears once you stick it down, just leaving the text or image that you have printed.

So I printed out the word Bonjour! trimmed the film close to the text and stuck it to my bottom white layer, then added the acetate layer, holding that in place with brads and then finally I cut around my coloured dog and glued him on along with the tag.

to keep everything matching I also coloured the brads and the ribbons with my Flexmarkers.

So now onto some yummy giveaway news...

  3. A French dachsundt! With that cheeky beret and fisherman's shirt, could he be anything but French. I think he is definitely a 'Hercule', with an eye for the ladies. Lovely card.
    I just checked out the SAFMAT FILM and really must get some.
