Eat - Drink - and be Merry


Today I am sharing a lovely card; I printed the sheet out a few days ago but that was as far as I got.

Then yesterday a group I belong to said that the card was to be a Trifold...I was so pleased as the sheet was for a trifold card

The sheet was by Janet Briggs and purchased from and the item number should anyone want it is cup87524_68

So to make the card I started by trimming the printed sheet down a little then used Crafters Companion Stick and Stay on the back and stuck the sheet to a sheet of white 300gsm card

The card was then cut out – its 3 tag shaped panels that are amusing as one dog says Eat... the middle panel the dog says Drink... and the last panel the dog says And Be Merry...

Once I had all the tag shapes cut out I used my V trimmer with the scoring blade to score the 2 lines which enabled me to fold into the trifold card.
I punched a hole through all 3 tags using the Crop-o-dile and added a black eyelet to each hole, then realised I should have had a backing sheet on the back of the tags so did a search on my PC and it came up with lots of different sheets but I chose a grey with black paw print paper.
Printed it out then stuck to the back of the tags and cut out, I pushed a pokey tool through the eyelets to break the paper on the back then added a length of lovely green and cream fibres to each tag.
On the back I decided to die-cut a fancy square of card and then stamped “Good friends make hearts lighter xxx” and coloured the square lightly with pale blue Pan Pastel

To finish I cut out the 3 bones with bows and stuck one under each eyelet on the back

And that’s my card finished, I just need to pop it in an envelope and get it sent out to my swap partner.’s about coffee and cake time so bye for now...
See you tomorrow with another card
