To Be a Hero - SNSDC58

This week's challenge at The Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog is to make a card that has a maximum of 2 layers (the card base and embellishments don't count as layers).  If you know my cards, you'll know this is a true challenge for me.  So, in my mind, when I was making this card, the patterned paper strips, the puppy image and the jute are all embellishments.  *grin*

I used this weekly card sketch challenge on SCS for the card design.  I printed the sentiment directly on my 8.5 x 11 cardstock before cutting the card-base to 5.5 x 11.  I then layered dark blue cardstock behind some new (to me) embossed brown Bazzill cardstock.  Before adhering the two layers of cardstock to the card-base, I punched a hole in each corner and then threaded some jute thru the holes and tied a knot in one corner.  I then attached this panel to the base with pop dots.

The puppy was colored with copics and fussy cut.  The paper strips are from a piece of patterned paper I've been sort of hoarding in my stash. I inked the edges of the strips and all 3 solid cardstocks.  The line is called "Like Father, Like Son" and is by Fancy Pants.  Our son looks up to my husband and our grandson does the same with our son, so these father/son sentiments are close to my heart.  I used pop dots to attach the paper strips and the puppy.  I added a little glaze to the puppy's nose and a touch of glitter pen to his tag.  A little doodled frame around the sentiment finished off the card.

Cardstock:  Bazzill, Co'redinations
Patterned Paper:  Fancy Pants (Like Father Like Son)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digis (Father's Day Sentiments, Let's Go Fishing Puppy)
Embellishments/Tools:  jute (JoAnn's), Sakura glaze pen, Sakura clear star pen, CM Journal pen (black), Colorbox Fluid Chalk (chestnut roan)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Paper Pretties Monday Challenge (PPMC43) - Father's Day
Papertake Weekly - 3-2-1 (I used 3 solid cardstocks, 2 digi stamps and 1 piece of jute)
