Perfect Companion

Hi folks today I tried the Perfect Companion from Stamping Dragon Designs
These are
Beautiful Quote Border great for scrapbook layouts or a card fronts, two borders included 12" Long for Scrapbookers and 1200 Long for Cardmakers.

1.I decided I would print mine in the 13cm by 18cm photo size on Picaso and got 2 on a page. I cut them both out the first I mounted onto a folded brown card and cut it out ensuring I cut it near the fold so the card would stand up. 2.The second image I cut the shadow element off and mounted it on 3d foam on the first.
3.To finish the card off I punched a hole in a craftwork card sentiment and put it on ribbon to look like a dog tag and then put gems on the collar.

This was such a quick but effective card ,
suitable for any dog lover.
Thanks for calling by.
