'Sending you some Puppy Love' Card

I am SENDING him to you for this very purpose,
to let you know how we are,
 and to encourage your hearts.
Ephesians 6 : 22

Welcome to Digi Desserts Fridaze in connection with My Paper Crafting !    We, on the Design Team, are to create a project using a Digital File from the vast selection at every Friday, share them with You and encourage You to visit over there, get the FREE Digi File for today, make a project with it and link it for all to see.  The ‘winning’ designer is highlighted next week as a Guest Designer!   It’s an easy and fun thing to do on the weekend! 

For this week’s project I made a Card of Love and Encouragement for a Special Someone in my life who loves dogs, using the Free File offered recently on the ‘TotallyTags and ATCs’ post on MyPaperCrafting – ‘Puppies in Basket VG.’  There are usually Vintage Digi Files offered on Thursdays and I just LOVE using them on my projects and giving them ‘An Elegant Touch…’!  There are usually several ‘color options’ in each file, allowing for a vast amount of creativity along that line and sometimes I also put them in my FREE “Perfect Effects Free” program which offers even more color shading availability.  This time I used one that Melin offered in several colors.  I put the ‘original’ color in my Perfect Effects Free program and added the ‘Blue Dawn’ action to it, which made the puppies in browns and the flowers in light lavender with hunter green accents.

I used white cardstock for the Card.  I printed the Digi on photo paper and ripped around the edges.  I cut a piece of green/white tiny polka-dot paper, distressed and curled the edges and adhered it to the card front.  I ripped around the edges of a scrap of woodgrain paper that I’d scanned and printed and then cut a Cross from it for a card back in March.  (Easter Stained Glass and Cross Card)   I fit the Digi into the crook of it and adhered that to the green.

I typed the sentiment in my PSE 10 program, printed it in brown on white/green tiny polka-dot paper and cut it into a tiny banner.  I adhered it with a foam pop-dot-type piece to keep it raised.

I made a floral spray of brown gingham leaves, green branches and tiny lavender blossoms to ‘mirror’ the flowers in the Digi.

Here is the Digi file I used -  

Be sure to visit Melin at MPC and sign up for her blog and Newsletters, join us on the Blog Hops at various times of the year and check there weekly to see what’s offered in her Store!  She offers Amazing Digi and Cutting Files and I’m SURE that you will find lovely items to enhance your paper-crafting projects!  As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about what or how I have done on here -  Happy Crafting!  ;-}


Here is the FREE digi-file for this week at My Paper Crafting.  Be sure to stop over there, if you haven’t already, see all of the other creative projects, get the file, make a project of your own using a digi-file from My Paper Crafting and then link it there so we can see it, too!
