Another Head to Head at Dragons Lair Designs

This month the Head to Head challenge at DLD features a hopeful dog! It is a great set for ‘doggy’ scrapbook layouts and also for cards, particularly for men.

Materials used: SAM_2816(watermarked)
Dragons Lair Designs – Zoodles
white printer card and paper
A5 gatefold card blank
white pearl gems
dark brown Copic
acrylic greetings stamp
Adirondak Espresso ink pad

I printed out all the papers and pictures that I wanted to use onto card and paper, depending on use.

I used both images of the dog, cutting out the one on the white background, shaping it a littel and then attaching it to the first image using gel glue to give a slightly raised look to the dog.

The corner gems and the edges of the card have been coloured with a dark brown Copic pen.



I used the frame on the envelope reversing the image so that the dog is on the left side leaving the white frame for the address.




There is a lot going on at Dragons Lair Designs at the moment with loads of prizes on offer for all sorts of different competitions and challenges. Why not go and take a look for yourself, all the links are below.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    A very handsome dog & your double layering of the image, with the dimension – looks so nice on the gatefold card. Nice extra detail to use this particular pattern paper. Also liked the way you did the matching envelope…another detail that the lucky recipient will love as well. TFS & Hugs
