Pet lovers are howling with excitement over the purr-fectly whimsical Playful Pets suite. The Playful Pets bundle of stamps and dies are a must-have for anyone with a fur-baby. The Playful Pets Designer Series Paper is a great accent and some of the designs coordinate with the dies to create fast and fabulous pet cutouts.
In this tutorial I am showing one layout done two ways. The first is a simple stamping (#simplestamping) card using stamps, ink, and paper. The second card is the stepped up version that adds in die cutting, 3D embossing, and heat embossing.

1) Cut Basic Gray cardstock to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". Score at 4-1/4" along the 8-1/2" side.
