After yesterday’s grouchy cat card, Dog Punch said it was his turn to be featured , and he’s so sweet, I thought it was only fair. He barked out instructions to me, so you can follow along below.
Dog Punch Instructions
I want to be Basic Gray, so punch me out in that color. I don’t want to be perfectly flat, so punch me again, and glue me together. Give me fur with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.
I want to sit on a swirly circle of hearts and paw prints. Cut my circle with a Painted Labels Die from Pampered Pets Designer Paper.
The red striped paper would look good in the background, so cut a piece with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die, and glue it to a Smoky Slate card base.
I want to say, “scratch, wag, play, love, bark, woof, dig, chase,” so cut that from the DSP. Glue red balls to it, that you make with a Painted Labels Die, and Real Red Cardstock, and glue it across my body.
Sometimes I wear a collar with a tag that looks like the Ornate Frames Die, so use it to cut a piece of Basic Gray Cardstock, and stamp “my friend” on it. You’ll find it in the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set. And, one last thing, you can use my punch to make a Real Red heart, and glue it to the tag, because I love you!
I was inspired by Dog Punch and Freshly Made Sketches.

Hi Sue: Such cute dog and grumpy cat cards. I love them – I will have to case them as I have the “Pampered Pets Bundle” and DSP on my desk right now. I have friends who have cats and 4 grand-dogs whose parents (my 3 – children in their 40’s) will love your card from this bundle.. I follow you faithfully from Canada and love your talent and creative ability to make “beautiful cards”.
Wow this is such a cute take on the sketch, Su. I love the texture and the color scheme ,too. So glad you joined us at Freshly Made Sketches this week.
Cute, cute, cute! What a fantastic use of pattern, texture and dies! And that word strip- how adorable! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
He’s so cute – I love the texture on him!! I love the die and the paper you used behind him. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
Oh my gosh!!! So stinkin’ cute these past 2 days!!! The grouchy cat card…immediately made 2 of them, more to come for sure. And then today’s card and your directions are priceless. Thank you for the fun and the whimsy speaking directly to us animal lovers. Guess I know how I’ll spend my rainy afternoon here in NH.
Bringing joy is my goal, so I really appreciate your comment. Thank you, Sue!
I love your card and your narrative! So much fun to read the instructions. ♥️
Thank you for telling me, Deborah. I’m so glad you enjoyed the story!
Good morning, Su, I loved this post. Very funny and what a great idea that was. Your grouchy cat yesterday was also so true to life. I have these sets and hope to CASE them someday. Definitely keepers. Oh, also, I have not seen anyone else use an EF, which was a great idea too.
Have a blessed day.
Hi Nancy, I always love seeing your smiling face and nice comments. Thank you, and you have a blessed day also!
