Personalized Dog Buddy Cards

I had a request for set of cards to be given to an adopted dog’s new neighborhood buddies. Very cute thought, right?

Here is a close up of just one card:

I found this Cloud9Design Paw Print paper at my local JoAnn’s, and that made all of my color choices easy. I embossed the dog names and die cut them to be collar tags. The collars are strips of paper that I embossed in a Darice Paw Print embossing folder and then threaded through metal slides from an old Stampin’ Up! Hodgepodge Hardware collection (that I have used perhaps 3 of 138 pieces until this project!).

The inside sentiment was computer generated and glued inside.

Of course I had to make the envelopes match the cards!
