MacDuff, the Scottie

Our dog is a Scottish Terrier.
His name is MacDuff.  He is a
great little dog with a big voice.
He is also a great watch dog.
Mac Duff will even let me cuddle him on special occasions.

This card began with a white card base that
has the front covered with black card stock.

Now take another piece of white card stock (4. x 5.25 inches).
Punch along the a long edge with EK Successes Doggie Paws
border punch.

I found some Christmas Washi Tape on sale and in plaid.
Oh my, perfect for my Scottie Dog cards.
So place the washi tape on the white card stock with 
the punched edge.
I cut the tape a little long on both sides
and folded it over to the back of the card stock.
It just gives a subtle look that is more finished.
I happened to find some narrow black washi tape, but you 
could use black text weight paper.
This narrow black borders the plaid on either side.
Now place this whole washi taped white piece
with the paw print punched border 
on the card front.

I happen to have a Scottie dog die cut.
so Mr. MacDuff is die cut in black.
I used a black Viva Pearl Pen for his
eye and a silver Viva Pearl Pen for his collar.
I really like how the pearl pens hold their shape
and their shine.  They are also great for embellishing
as pearls and flower centers.

I cut a white oval and then a slightly larger red oval,
layered the white over the red
and centered MacDuff on them .
A 3-D effect was created by gluing the flat
parts of paper egg cartons to the back of the ovals.

Just barely visible in the photo on the
lower right edge of the plaid washi tape
are three "pearls" created with
a black Viva Pearl Pen.
