The new Long Dachshund - and his mirror-image buddy - contemplate life on a simple little card today.  The washi tape background from Birch Press Design gets a quick trim with the Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a greeting for someone needing a bit of encouragement and support during a tough time.   MemoryBoxLongDachshund-MemoryBoxWrappedStitchRectangles-MemoryBoxDogGoneClearStamps-BirchPressDesign-JeanOkimoto-DogCards-DiecutDogCards-WashiTapeCards-DiecutWashiTapeCards

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to tan and dark brown felt.  It will stabilize the felt and keep adhesives from saturating the fabric.  Cut Long Dachshund from dark brown felt.  Cut him again from the reverse side of the tan felt to create a left-facing dachshund.  Switch their ears.  

Attach lime and turquoise duct tape to lightweight cardstock and cut the collars.  

Attach strips of washi tape (about 3" long) to white cardstock and diecut the cardstock with the 2-¾" x 4" Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die.  

Stamp the greeting - from the new Dog Gone Clear Stamps Set - with Verdant VersaFine Clair.  

Attach the diecuts to a side-folded A-2 card of textured green cardstock.  Add green gem stickers.

Simple strips of washi tape can add so much to a quick card.  See the great patterns and beautiful colors featured on the Birch Press Design site.

Big thanks to everyone who joined us for last weekend's THOUGHTS + THANKS class at Impress!  It's always nice to have a stash of thank you and thinking-of-you cards ready - hope you liked the designs that we stamped, folded and layered.  Thanks too - Ann, Erin and Laura - for helping everyone fill their baskets!

The Impress Annual Spring Sale starts today - and runs through Sunday April 22nd.  Bring your wishlist of Memory Box and Poppystamps items - and enjoy a 20% discount on the great designs you've been waiting for!  Stock up on VersaFine Clair inkpads too - they're my favorite inks for classes and here on Outside the Box.  

Hope you'll have a chance to take advantage of the 4-day sale - and join us for the GREEN GREETINGS class on Earth Day, April 22nd from 11:30-1:30.   Green - the color and the concept - is the class theme.  Lots of green - papers, inks, accents,  recycled items - and great techniques.  Everyone receives a bonus pack of some items from my stash to make more class cards at home later.  

Thanks for stopping by - have a great day!
