Newton's Nook Designs DT Post - Kindness goes a LONG Way

Hi crafty friends! Today I'm sharing this super cute friendship card on the Newton's Nook Designs blog featuring the "Delightful Doxies" set.
Doxie Friendship Card by Handmade by Yuki | "Delightful Doxies" by Newton's Nook Designs
I cut the main panel using a stitched rectangle die from pattern paper from the Pink Paislee "Solstice" 6x6 paper pack. I used vellum for the shaker window and stamped the butterfly antenna onto the vellum with StazOn "Jet Black" ink. I filled the shaker with the "Spring Flowers Mix" from Pretty Pink Posh. I used one of the stitched border dies from the Pretty Pink Posh "Stitched Borders 3" set for the sentiment and die cut a strip of kraft cardstock using the stitched scalloped die also from Pretty Pink Posh. I colored the Doxie and butterfly using Copic Markers and fussy-cut them out. To finish the card, I mounted all of the layers onto a scalloped cardbase and added some twine.

Doxie: W4, W6, E13, E15
Collar: RV11, E04, C1, C2
Butterfly: Y21, Y23, V93, V95

Isn't this Doxie just the sweetest? To make her look extra cute, I gave her some eye lashes. I hope you enjoyed today's card and thanks again for stopping by! ♥

  1. I absolutely love this shaker card! She's adorable! Love the clean design of your card too! And you just gave me another reason for me to take out my set so I can make a cute card like this. :) Anyway, I'm curious about the white thread that you used on this card & a lot of your other cards. Is that just a regular thread or is it crochet thread? Mine are sewing thread & they are very thin & I always have to double up the thread to make it look visible. I'm looking for a thicker white thread/twine. Yours look pretty thick. Where did you get it?

    1. Thank you! It's actually twine and one of my favorites! I have yet to find white twine that I like as much anywhere else. It's the perfect thickness and just a little off-white, so it's not too bright. I buy it from the Pretty Pink Posh store:

    2. Thanks so much, Yuki! Going over there now. :)
