A friend recently added a new member to their family… a cute, sweet and energetic puppy. This is the congratulatory card I sent to them.


  • Paper and Cardstock
  • Stamps
    • Sentiment Stamp of Choice
  • Inks and Embossing Powders
  • Embellishments
    • 1/2" blank cotton twill ribbon     ( TWILL-1/2   $0.50/yard)
    • Thin Twine, Natural     ( CR-Twine-Nat   $0.20/yard), about 8”
    • Paw Buttons or Max & Whiskers Buttons/Brads     ( your choice ,   $3.99 - $5.99)

  • Make a 4 1/2” x 6” card base from the Bazzill Hershey cardstock.

  • Cut a piece of Max & Whiskers Gannett paper about 1/8” smaller than the card base. Set aside.

  • Cut a favorite pet image from the Max & Whiskers Dakota paper.

  • Mat this image onto a layer of Max & Whiskers Gretchen paper (about 1/2” showing all the way around).

  • Add a narrow mat layer of Bazzill Hershey cardstock.

  • Stamp sentiment onto twill using Denim Adirondack ink.

    Tie off with a knot.

    Wrap ends of twill around to the back.
    Attach this piece to the front of the brown card base.

  • Add the pet image layers to front of card with 3D adhesive squares.

  • Embellish the twill with “paw” buttons or any of the coordinating Max & Whiskers Gummies or Brads.
