Puppy Double Pop Up Card

I have always had a soft spot in my heart for dogs and puppies, so I got very excited when I saw crafters sharing cards and crafts adorned with the sweetest little paper pieced pups created using Marianne Designs "Eline's Puppies" die set. 

Without question I had to purchase one too. But I have to admit, after seeing all the tiny little dies in the set I began to wonder if buying the die set was a mistake.  Happily I found Eline's video tutorial on  You Tube where she quickly pieces together 12 different dog breeds from this one set. I was hooked!

I pieced together the 12 breeds demonstrated by Eline to keep as my reference samples and even made up some of my own... so fun!

For my card I placed one of my puppers into a polaroid style frame with a sentiment, cut using the print and cut function. Then for the grey pup, I designed a "husky-like" face mask using Make the Cut Design program and sizing it to fit onto the Eline's Puppy die cut dog head. 

On the inside, I wanted to try a fun "Double Pop Up" mechanism which I had recently seen several tutorials for on You Tube.

All the tutorials I viewed were excellent but I found the one by Samantha Calcott  of Mixed Up Crafts easiest for me to follow since all her measurements were in inches rather than metric centimeters.

I added two more pups pieced together using the Eline's Puppies dies onto the pop up "cards" inside the card

Sentiments were computer generated and I sprinkled the flowers cut from Karen Burniston's Pop Up Frame die kit throughout the card to embellish.
I had so much fun putting this fun card together; playing with the adorable puppy dies and adding them to a new (for me) pop up card.
