Valentines day card #2

Wow! Day 2 of posts! LOL
We got another 4 inches on Wednesday and STILL are snowed in (I haven't driven a car since Monday Jan 31st...can ya say I'm stir crazy!) because hubbie has to drive my SUV with 4 wheel drive to work.

So, here is another card. DD had this idea to give to her teacher because her teacher has a cat and dog. So....

I got car decals 2 weeks ago. I love Paper Pups with the simple layering and that is the main reason I got car decals. Very similar. I never wanted to use it for "car decals."
This is just me but the only thing I don't like about car decals is one eyeball is always smaller than the other. I know it's suppose to be that way. I just use the gypsy to hide/contour and will either draw on my own or use black flat accents for the eyes. I might try to use PK stamps too maybe...hmmmm....

So this was a store pre-made tan 4x6 card. I used car decals and cut the dog and cat at 2.5." The heart is from sweethearts and I think 1". The paper is Martha Stewart key and heart mat pad, and the heart punch is Martha. The twin is red/white from someone on ebay.

I don't remember the sizes I cut the mats. I ran the heart shape through the Xyron X and then used MS red glitter. Then, used glossy accents for the first time. I can tell I will be a BIG fan of glossy accents! I put the dog and cat together, glued down their eyes, drew on a black nose. I wanted the dog and cat facing a certain way so they could look like they were holding the heart so I turned and flipped one of them before cutting.

Glued down the red heart mat, then took twine and wrapped and taped to the tan printed mat and tied a bow. Then glued down on the red mat. Glued down the punched heart border and finally the dog and cat. After glossy accents dry (I put on thin so like 15 min) I glued it on top of their paws.

Inside the card was an EK success punch for the tag. Used a stamp from M's and some black stampin'up ink. Then glued down another MS heart border
