I then searched around for some other cute dog images and found the "doggone good" on the Cricut Just Because Cards cartridge and the "best friend" dog tag on the Cricut Paper Pups cartridge.
I added stitching along his ears and nose for definition. I also made an additional shadow (the black layer behind the red layer) on the dog using the Cricut Craft Room, for just a bit more definition. Also, before I got going, I wasn't sure what background paper I was going to use and thought the black edging would help.
I always love "wiggle eyes" as you may have noticed by now. I think they make a project so cute! I also added silver balls to make a mouth. There was just the vertical line and I wanted him smiling.The "best friend" dog tag also needed a bit of stitching. I made the background shiny silver, which you can kind of see above. The leg on the "e" is a bit skinny but it still cut ok.
Finally, I used the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots folder to emboss the background to the "doggone good". Brads gave the placard some border definition. I also offset the "good" layer for some depth.
