I’d like you to meet Dane. His nickname is “birthday dog,” because he’s always so eager to wish everyone a happy birthday. He insisted on making this card, and said it would turn out nicely if I followed his instructions. I’ll try my best!

Birthday Dog


Dane’s Instructions

The first thing you need to do is have a human cut me out of the Playful Pets Designer Paper. I’m not hard to find, because I’m the tall, cute one. Then, you can start making my card.

I like the red stripe for my background (3 3/4″ X 5″) layered on Real Red Cardstock that is 1/8″ larger, giving it a 1/16″ border.  Layer this on a Gray Granite card base that matches my fur. I may slobber, but I’m neat when it comes to card making.


Since I’m a Playful Pet, I love playing with the Playful Alphabet. Stick a 1″ strip of Real Red Cardstock onto a 1″ strip of a Foam Adhesive Sheet, put the letters on top, and crank it through the cutting machine. Be careful not to catch your tail in there; it hurts!

See how great the letters are? You can’t lose them, because they come on a sticky sheet that shows you where they belong.


I need a box to sit on, so I can stack all the letters. You make it with a Stitched Rectangles Die (1 3/4″ X 1 1/4″) and Gray Granite Cardstock. And, it has to have “birthday” written on it. You can find that word in the Well Said Stamp Set. Stamp it in Real Red Ink, cut it with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die, and snip the ends to make it fit on the box. Now it’s time to eat!


I hope you were able to follow Dane’s instructions. I think he did a pretty good job. You’ll find all of his supplies in the Product List below.
