Today I am bringing you a card made using the Playful Pets Suite of products. This is a really cute suite featuring a variety of cats and dogs in the style of “Lady and the Tramp” illustrations. As soon as I saw the Shih Tzu on the Designer Series Paper, I knew I had to get it. For anyone who doesn’t know, I have a Shih Tzu Fur Baby called Saffie. She is now 18 months old and long haired.
I found this fancy fold idea of the Inside Z Fold from another Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator called Rachel Tessman. She has a great easy to follow video tutorial on YouTube using the World of Good Suite.
As usual, all the products used on this card are listed at the bottom of the page and each picture contains a clickable link which will take you direct to that product on my online shop.

I hope you enjoyed this project, I think it turned out quite cute. I might save it to give to Saffie for her birthday in December being as she inspired it. (Is that a bit sad?)
Anyway, thanks for stopping by
