How cute is this card? If you have are a dog lover, this card will warm your heart.

It came together quickly thanks to the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Rectangle Stitched Dies, but if you don’t have those, it’s easy to just cut the cardstock as normal. I pulled the color combination straight out of the Well Suited Designer Paper and I think it fit this card really well!
