On Dec. 26, 2012, I posted a Snoopy punch art card I had created for Operation Write Home. It was Snoopy lying on his army tent missing those back home. I have a friend this year who is all things Snoopy at Christmas. I decided to create the same Snoopy on his dog house with Christmas lights. The tools used are listed below the picture.
This is a top fold horizontal A2 card. To create the top of the dog house, I cut a piece of red card stock 4″ x 2.” I diagonally cut each side of the roof to make the top length of the roof 3.5.” The base of the dog house is 1″ x 3.5.” I scored both the roof and the house at 1/2″ intervals to create a wood look and then brushed the edges of both pieces with a light brown (Crumb Cake SU), ink with an ink dauber. I placed the dog house base where I wanted it and laid the roof over the top and secured.
The Christmas light string and lights are a die cut from Stamps of Life called “christmastree2stamp dies.”
The punches used to create Snoopy are all from SU, most retired:
Snoopy’s Head is the Full Heart Punch. His leg/paw is the Classic Label Punch. His nose is a Word Window Punch, or you could use a small circle. Snoopy’s ear and back spot were created with the wing on the Bird Builder Punch. Snoopy’s tail is a leaf from the branch of the Bird Builder Punch. Snoopy’s hind leg is a 3/4″ circle. All Snoopy pieces were brushed to give them dimension using Crumb Cake Ink and a sponge dauber. Snoopy’s hat was created with the Hat Builder Punch.
The Merry Christmas sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes; SU.
