Happy Father's Day From Our Fur Baby :)

Father's Day is coming up and I have this adorable stamp from Great Impressions Stamps that I love and have been eager to use...
it is Potted Puppy and reminds me of our fur baby Zoey.  
I thought it would be fun to make my husband a Father's Day card from Zoey with it :)

This is a Window Gatefold HERE to see my tutorial on how to make one.

I used my Cuttlebug to make the window (see how in the video)
The paper I used on the front of the card as "wallpaper" AND the inside of the card as "grassy hills" is from MHK Designs out of the Sunflower Sampler digital paper pack.  To create the "grassy hills" I tore the paper and inked the edges with Distress Ink.  The adorable image was colored with Inktense watercolor pencils.  "Happy Father's Day" was cut using "Phrases" Cricut Cartridge.
