Pet Sympathy Card

A co-worker recently had to make the hard decision every pet owner hates.  I've been there myself twice in the past 12 years and will be there again sometime in the next few years.  As a pet owner, I tell myself that it's always what is best for the pet, not what is best for me.  Obviously what is best for me is to have my best friend around forever!  That's just not realistic.  It has to be what is best for the pet.

I made this sympathy card for her.

I used watercolor paper along with the following distress inks watered down to make the background of the card:  barn door, spiced marmalade, mustard, mowed lawn, mermaid lagoon, faded jeans and dusty concord.  I spritzed my background with water for 30 seconds before wiping off with a paper towel to get the water spot effects.

Once the card panel was dry, I used Heidi Swapp silver texture paste with a paw print stencil.  I used a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die to cut the panel to A2 card size.  As a final touch on the outside, I added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm clear droplets.

On the inside of the card I used second generation stamping of  a dog from Paper Smooches set, then stamped my sentiment over top of the dog.  My sentiment is also from a Paper Smooches set.

I made a couple of these cards to have on hand in my stash, this is not a card that I like to make on an as needed basis.

Have an awesome day!
