Hello paper crafting friends! I am so super excited to share that I have a new series over on the Simon Says Stamp blog called, Making The Cut! This monthly feature is all about making the most of die cutting. Each month I'll be sharing tips, tricks, techniques, and cards that focus on die cutting!

Today I'm sharing two picture book pets card featuring cute pets staring out a die cut window. Mixing and matching dies and products from multiple manufacturers to create a the perfect scene or card is one of my favorite tips. For these cards I knew I wanted to showcase the Picture Book French Bulldog, Picture Book Chihuahua, Picture Book Labrador, and Picture Book Sweet Cat to go with sentiments from the Simon Says Stamp I Like You Stamp and Die Set. I went through my supplies and found the perfect window in the Honey Bee Stamps Cottage Window Set.
Copic Markers in the following colors were used to add detail to the die cut elements for additional depth and dimension:
- Window and shutters: W00, W2
- Leaves: YG13, YG17
- Flowers: R30, R32, R35
- Cat: W5, W00, W2, R30
- French bulldog: E74, E79, W00, W2, R30
- Chihuahua: C6, C8, W00, W2, R30
- Labrador: E55, E57, E53
Keep in mind if you use the Honey Bee Stamps Cottage Window Set with the shutters, the card fits an A7 or (5"x7") card base (the dogs card). If you leave the shutters off you can easily change the design to fit an A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") card base (cat card). Either card can be altered to fit the size of card base you prefer!
The "house" background for each card was created with the Tim Holtz Bricked Stencil and Lawn Fawn Hippo Ink.
