Sometimes the hardest cards we have to make is due to loss of someone we love dearly! This includes our pets! We all know that animals become part of our family and we mourn them just as much as a person!
I needed to create a special card for a co-worker who lost her beloved dog! I pulled out some of retired items that I couldn't part with to make the card! I used the Stampin Up Playful Pets DSP and the following stamp sets, Peaceful Moments, Pampered Pets and Happy Tails. I also used the Dog Builder punch and Be Mine dies. For the card, I used a combo of Basic Black, Real Red, Crumb Cake and Basic White.
My cardbase is Basic White
You will need:
4x5 1/4 Basic Black
3 3/4x5 Basic White
DSP cut 3 1/12x 3/12 and cut an offset triangle..cut pint to almost half of the other side
Large Stitched Heart - Be Mine Dies cut in Real Red
1 Dog punched in Crumb Cake and the heart from the punch in Real Red
I used the twine combo that was included in the Playful Pets Suite and some Matte Black dots
Stamp the greeting from Pampered Pets in Momento Black Ink onto the Basic White Layer.
Attach the Basic White layer onto the Basic Black layer and attach to the cardbase using dimensionals.
Add the DSP to the bottom of the Basic White.
Tie the 2 twines around the Stitched Heart and finish in a bow. Attach the heart to the dog with a glue dot. Add the dog to the Stitched Heart with dimensionals
Attached the Stiched Heart to the cardbase with dimensionals.
Embellish with 3 Matte Black dots.
I stamped the inside of the card with the greeting from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set with a Paw Print from the Playful Pets Stamp Set. Both also stamped in the Momento Black Ink.
I also added a piece of the same DSP to the envelope flap to create a completed look.
I love how the card came out.
Let me know what you think!!!
