Doggie Kisses Card Instructions:

To start, trim a piece of white cardstock to 4 x 5.25 inches.  Using a ruler and a pencil, add a light border around the panel .25 inches from the edge.

Ai 1 Ai 2

Trace over the line using the DecoFoil Adhesive Pen, either freehand or by using the ruler as a guide.  If the ruler is used, make sure to clean it off afterwards since the adhesive is very sticky.

Ai 3

Once the adhesive on the panel is dry, place a piece of Teal DecoFoil™ onto it, Silver side down (Teal side up).  Press foil into the adhesive.  You can use a bone folder or your finger.

Ai 4

Start stamping the adorable images! I used a MISTI stamping tool, to make sure everything was laid out the way I wanted, but any acrylic block will work, too.

Ai 5

Stamp the paws in multiple colors.  The MISTI works best for this technique, but it can be done with a block.  Ink up half of the image in one color, then add the second color, slightly overlapping the first color.  This will give a slight ombre effect.

Ai 6

Begin to color in the image using alcohol markers. Start with the lightest colors, then blend in the darker shades.

Ai 7 AI 8

Once the coloring is done, add foam squares to the back of the panel to add dimension.  Adhere it to a standard top-folding card base (4.25 x 11, scored at 5.5 inches).
