Thank You for Watching the Dog

Hello and welcome back!  It’s Karen here today and I’ve used the new stamp set called “Puppy Mail” to make my card today.

I first stamped and coloured in my images with copic markers.  I also used the image from the “I Just Miss You”  set. This is also available as a digital set, so it’s easy to resize to your card front. I love how all these images so clearly show different moments in a puppy’s day. 

On my card front, I used the larger circle die in the Panel Shapes die set from Your Next Stamp because I liked that it cut the stitched line around it. I cut out four circles, leaving room for my sentiment. I found a dog paw stamp in my stash and stamped it randomly over the card front in black Versafine ink. 

I placed the card front over my card base and lightly pencilled in the circles. I used a larger circle die to cut out my images, and then adhered them with glue over the pencilled areas. I decided not to pop my card front up with foam tape, but I do think that would look very nice. 

I used the sentiment from the Puppy Mail set and stamped it on some white cardstock. I used a fishtail die to cut it out and then mounted it with tape to a piece of blue cardstock. I fussy cut the blue cardstock to leave a small border along the top and bottom, and then adhered this to my card front and trimmed the excess from the right hand side. 

This was a really quick and simple card to make but such a handy one to have in your stash if you’re a dog owner.  I know that I’ll be using it someday!
