PLAY ALONG: Doggie Card

Hello all my crafty and bloggy friends! Have you guys heard of the new Facebook Group called PLAY ALONG? You can find it... HERE.

For this PLAY ALONG we are making a set of cards and a box to put them in. Today I'm going to show you my second card for my set. I'm using the My Mind's Eye NOTABLE Play Along Collection Kit. You can use your own stash to create your cards and box for this Play Along, or you can purchase a "Play Along Kit" from Theresa, The Scrapbooking Queen. The Play Along kits (My Mind's Eye "Notable" Collection) are "sample packs" of the entire collection (at a smaller price than the entire collection), and just perfect for having enough goodies to make the projects. Plus it gives you a 'taste' of the entire collection kit. 

This is what the NOTABLE Play Along Kit looks like (some of the papers and buttons may vary in each kit):

And here is my second card for this Play Along:

Card Details:
  • A2 size card 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
    • DOG HOUSE p. 120 cut @ 4"
    • SLEEPING PUPPY p. 115 cut @ 1"
    • "Barks and Bones" for "Woof!" on dog house
