Welcome Puppy Punch Art card

A good friend of mine recently became the proud owner of an absolutely adorable little Springer Spaniel puppy. I couldn't resist and had to make a card to commemorate the special occasion.


This of course involved my trademark of creativity - punch art.
I used the amazing new Fox Builder  punch for the bulk of this little fellow; the instructions can be found at the end of the post.

My card base and card front are both white cardstock.  card is basic 5.5 x 4.25" in size. Card front trimmed down to 5.25 x 4".
a heart die was sued to cut a center window. A small piece of tan cardstock was torn to resemble ground and attached to the card based making sure it fit into the bottom of the heart window area.
the puppy punch art was assembled (ears and head were popped with foam, and attached to the card suing another piece of 1/16" thick foam tape.

The heart was outlined in a dot border using a brown marker and the card front was then attached to the base with 1/8" thick foam (or just double layer the thinner tape).


The sentiment is a die cut from red card, and the heart was punched from the same colour.
The greeting was pieces together from 2 separate sets of sentiment stamps. i used makers on the stamps to isolate only the words I needed.

Finally the bottom of the card was finished with a brown border cut  with a border die.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: White. red - Recollection, tan and brown - Bazzill
Stamps: Stacks of Wishes (bay) - SU, Botanicals for You - SU
Markers: Chocolate Chip - SU, Cherry Cobbler - SU
Dies: Heart Thinlits - SU, finishing Touches Thinlits - SU, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits - Su
Punch: Posh heart - Posh impressions, for punch art see below instructions
Misc.; black marker, white gel pen, foam mounting tape
