Hi, Karen here today. For today’s post, I decided to “monster-fy” a couple of Joset’s other critters. I made the funniest dog and a very unusual elephant as the centerpieces for some fun cards.
First up, I used the Dog die set to create this funny little critter. The face is from the Monster 2 set. I put the head with the eyes, nose, ears and body from the Dog. I love how silly he looks. I used Kraft cardstock for most of the pieces (except the eyes and teeth which are 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. The dog is framed by a Stitched Circle Die. Using 101mm behind pieces like the eyes before diecutting makes them so easy to adhere.
The face, ears, legs and body are edged with a tiny bit of Tea Dye Distress Ink. The collar is colored with a Copic Marker as is the tag and eyes.
I used all of the pieces of the Elephant die except I turned the body sideways to make him unusually skinny. haha I also used the head and horns from the Monster 1 die set.
I cut most of the pieces with very light grey cardstock and edged them with a bit of Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. The ears are cut from 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock and are colored with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink. The eyes and ears are cut using 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make them easy to put together! I used the Monster Hugs stamps on both cards.
Thank you for stopping by!
Craftily yours, Karen
