Today I would like to share a sympathy card I made for a friend who recently lost her dog. These type of cards are so difficult for me to make. If you know me well, you know I'm a major dog lover and I can feel your pain. My two 14 year old chocolate labs, Pebbles and Bambam were put to sleep about a year ago. I was blessed to have them both for 14 years I know but it's never long enough is it? Barney is my half pointer, half English Springer Spaniel and he is my baby. He is 9 years old and I treasure everyday with him.
I used an embossing folder by Darice on Gina K Design's heavy base weight white card stock, which I love. I also used her In The Navy as a layer. It is so hard to find a nice color Navy Blue and this is it. I cut out the heart with dog paw image out of red vinyl. I bought this from the Silhouette Store. I embossed the sentiment in clear to make it shiny. This is a set by Sizzix, stamps and Framelits dies together in a set by Stephanie Bernard. I can see myself using this set a lot. I wrote the text in the inside of the card with Silhouette Sketch Pens in black glitter.
I think it is hard to make a sympathy card for loss of pet so I think this embossing folder makes it a little easier.
Thanks for stopping by!
