Punch Art Dog and Bone

Punch art Dog and Bone
Cards don't always have to be stamped. Check out this punch art dog and bone that I made for a trade with my demo group.

How do you like his gift?  With Christmas only a month away and everyone getting into the gift giving mode, I thought it would look so cute to have a little dog giving a gift. He's peeking over the fence with his "for you" note stamped with a paw print (from the stamp set: D is for Dog). But thats all that was stamped! The rest is made from punches.

Can you tell which punches I used?  The Soft Suede part of his nose is the Ornament Punch with the tab cut off. The black part of his nose is one of the small petals from the Blossom Builder Punch. His paws and ears are also made with the blossom builder punch.

I used the Square Lattice embossing folder on the bone. The reason for embossing the bone is 2-fold. Partly to give it texture, but secondly to hide the edges where I glued the parts together. The bone is actually the Word Window punch with 2 punched hearts one on each end!

Its a little hard to tell in the photo, but I also used the Simply Scored tool to score lines on the red cardstock so it would look like a fence.

Isn't it fun to use punches beyond the use for which they were intended?  Have you made out your Christmas Wish List yet?  Add the Blossom Builder Punch and the Ornament punch to your list and you'll be able to make punch art like this one.  Or better yet, order yours today by clicking HERE
