Dog-Gone Awesome Shaker Card

While I was still in Germany MFT released some very cute dog stamps that I had to have. Mainly because one of the dogs looks like my Freedom. That’s why I had to use that particular dog on my card (even though my dog is not entirely brown) and create a dog-gone awesome shaker card with it.

Here is the video for you:


Please excuse the messy Copic coloring. These brown tones always bleed a little more than others, at least for me.

As I mentioned in the video I screwed up with using too much adhesive for the banner. That bothered me so much that I had to create a second shaker card. What I also changed was the mechanism to keep the flap closed. I added two paw-circles to the card, one on the flap, one slightly below and added a piece of twine around it. Now you can wrap the twine around both and keep the card closed. Btw, to lift the circles a little, I added a tiny piece of foam tape underneath them.
