It's Raining Cats & Dogs

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great start to your week. Recently, I won my first blog candy giveaway and thought I'd share with you some cards I made using the prizes I won. Sherry at Up Or Down They're Beautiful was sweet enough to include a few extra goodies along with the matstack I won. Included in those extra goodies was paper from The Pets mat stack by DCWV - the designs are so adorable! 

This is also my first set of "twin" cards I've created. One is cat-themed and the other dog-themed, but the designs are the same. 

This picture shows the close-up of the border around the sentiment. Some of it is hard to read, but the paper is patterned with popular cat and dog names. The cat paper reads "Patches Boots Felix Mittens" and the dog paper reads "Sparky Duke Rover Spot Lady." I thought that was so cute!

The cards were fairly simple to make. I used the paper from the mat stack along with colored cardstock.  My iRock was used to add the white gems and I used the Spots & Dots embossing folder to emboss the paper. I also added white glitter to the white border at the bottom, but it's sort of hard to tell based off the pictures.

Thanks so much for reading, I apologize for the shortness of this post. Classes start next week and I feel like I still have 320520358 things to do, so much for a break!
