Hi everyone, here is a simple and easy way to create a dachshund thank you card. 

Materials for the Dog:

Mocha Brown Card 240gsm

Buff Smooth Card 260gsm

Plain Black Card

Intensive Blue Plain 160gsm Card


Rich Cream Hopsack 255gsm Card

Intensive Blue Plain 160gsm

Materials need: 


Cutting Mat

Tracing Paper 


First of all you sketch out your dachshund, you can easily trace from a photo or print out.

Then you split it up into indivdual components, base dog, top dog, ear, nose, feet, eyes, tail and collar.

You can then either trace these on to your card and cut round using a scapel or scan it into a die cutter. Once you have your cut out parts you can stick it together.

Get the base dog, for which I used buff smooth card. Then stick the Mocha Brown card cut out on top along with the feet on the bottom. Then stick on the ear.

The trickiest part is sticking on the eyes and nose. I suggest nose first then you can gauge the position of the eye in relation to the nose.

Then you have your dog.

I have used a die cutter for the thank you letters but you can easily use a stencil and a pen. I have also added a black ear on top of the original ear. I hope this gives you a chance to send many thank you cards.
