Pawsome background!

Hi everyone! I’m back today to share a new card using one of the newest standalone die backgrounds from Penguin Palace, called Pawsome Background.

I was in a rainbow kind of mood, so I grabbed a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and my distress oxide inks: Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet. These worked perfectly to create the rainbow effect I was looking for.

I used the Pawsome Background on black cardstock and because it’s black, the rainbow colors really popped through the die cut pattern. Since the pattern is very concentrated, I decided to also die cut a little rectangle to allow room for the sentiment. While doing so, I used two rectangle die cuts to create a little frame around the sentiment so it popped a little more. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the stamp set, My Best Pal. Additionally, I just had to add one of the doggie images to the card, so I chose the one with the balloons. I stamped and die cut it using the coordinating dies.

This worked perfectly to go with the sentiment and the background. I loved how this card turned out. It makes for such a wonderful and cherry look so I hope you enjoyed it too.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!
