  1. Affix all stamps to acrylic blocks.

  3. Cut the front off of the card base from the By Your Side kit. Save the back to use on another card.
  4. Cut off 3/8” from the top and bottom of the card front panel.  Cut this way to make sure the green wash panel stays equal.  Cut off 3/8” from each side of the card front panel.  Cut this way to ensure the plaid sides are equal on each side.  See photo above.
  5. Attach the panel from Step 4 to the 3 ¾” x 5”  Pecan Pie panel.  Use Stampin’ Seal to add this to the card front centering on all sides.
  6. Use Stampin’s Seal to attach the dog die cut to the bottom of the card front. 
  7. Stamp the sentiment using Pecan Pie ink on the banner die cut from the kit making sure the black and white strip is at the bottom.  Keep the sentiment to the right hand side of the banner. 
  8. Stamp 2 of the dog bones using Pecan Pie on the left side of the sentiment banner. 
  9. Add the sentiment banner to the upper right hand of the card front at an angle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
