Sketch Book Chapter IX The Best of Breeds Volume II : Retriever

Today’s two handmade cards have been made using the brand new Pollyanna Pickering cd-rom called ‘Sketch Book Chapter IX The Best of Breeds Volume II’ from Creative Crafting World.

For these cards I have used the Retriever image and paper collection from the cd-rom.

Handmade Golden Retriever Card

To make this card you will need :

8″ by 8″ Cream Card Base
Woodstock Card – Blue
Cream Card
Sketch Book Chapter IX The Best of Breeds Volume II Cd-Rom
The Paper Boutique Flowers & Leaves Cutting Dies
Circle Dies
Pearls
Wet Glue / Double Sided Tape
Foam Pads

Instructions:

From the cd-rom print off three papers and an image sheet that includes a circle image and a sentiment.

Cut a piece from the blue woodstock card measuring 19.5 cms by 19.5 cms and a piece from one of the papers measuring 19 cms by 19 cms.
Matt and layer these together and attach to the card base.

Next from the blue woodstock card cut two squares measuring 8 cms by 8 cms and a square from each of the others papers measuring 7.5 cms by 7.5 cms.
Matt and layer these together using foam pads and attach one to the top left and one to the bottom right on the card base.

Using the circle dies cut a larger circle out in the blue woodstock card, a smaller circle in the papers that was first used.
Matt and layer these together along with the topper image using foam pads.
Attach to the centre of the card base slightly over lapping the two square layers.

Cut a matt layer out for the sentiment in cream card. Make this slightly larger than the sentiment giving it a small border.
Matt and layer together using foam pads and attach to the top right of the card base.

Then using two flower dies from the flower and leave die collection, cut the small flower die twice out of cream card and then the slightly larger flower die twice out of the blue woodstock card.
Matt and layer these together and add to the bottom left of the card base and add a pearl bead to the centre.
