Dog Treats Greeting Cards


Dog Treats notecards by illustrator Catherine A. Moore… for lovers of dogs and sweets!

Cards are A2 size, printed on archival paper, packaged individually with white envelopes in protective plastic covers, and have a blank interior.

Once upon a time over Christmas, I was in a department store with my mom and pointed out an adorable sleepwear accouterment: “Aaaw, look at the scottie dog pajamas!” My mom looked puzzled, “… the biscotti dog pajamas?” That evening, after a few drinks with my sister, the remaining puns were doggedly constructed (ba-dum-cha), and a series of greeting cards was born… appropriately titled “Dog Treats.”

My friend and collaborator, Kaylinn Gilstrap recently helped me out by taking some incredible product photos of the cards!
