Quirky Boxer dog

Here is my last project for the current Quirky challenge. I used Boxer, by Enid Barnes, from Squigglefly. I adore Boxer dogs, they are so fierce to look at and so daft when you speak to them they roll over and go all soppy!
I coloured the dog with Promarkers and Graphit markers. I used the rest of the Gelli print I told you about in the last post, I was going to attempt another new technique but decided to keep that for another day.

The card in close up, that dog is gorgeous! The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, the background behind the dog is the ghost print from yesterday, see previous post, and the background is the offcut from yesterday. I used those Snaps again, not sure I like them but they go with the circles in the print and I have a lot of them! They are like eyelets, but no hole so you can't call them eyelets but you set them in the same way with a flat surface selected on the top, using the Cropadile Big Bite. A normal eyelet setter would probably do it, not tried yet.
Small squares were cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities.

 I used some printed doggy card for the inside, and a die cut panel of kraft paper to write on.

When I looked at the offcuts they just called out to be made into this tag/bookmark. It can be used as a tag on a gift, then kept to use as a bookmark. It could also be used as a standalone card.
Inside the tag/bookmark/mini card.

Here they are together both standing.
