Pet Sympathy Card

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Sorry for not posting on Friday, the day was busy celebrating my son’s 15th birthday! We didn’t do too much, just had some cake and presents and then I made his favorite dinner Salisbury steaks. He even deemed it a a worthwhile event enough to take a picture with me, which these days as a teenage boy is a rare occurrence! Somewhere over the last year he legitimately grew taller than me...which really isn’t hard to do since I’m not exactly a tall person!

Ok, so on to the card for today. I made this card for a dear friend who lost her furry family member last week. It’s always hard when we have to send our beloved pets over the rainbow bridge. She has a 4 boys who will surely miss him so very much so I wanted to make the card with some bright vibrant “boy” type colors so I chose a red, blue, green and yellow palette. The stamp set is from Great Impressions Stamps and I stamped it with black ink from Simon Says Stamp, and then used some Copic markers to fill in the hearts. I covered a few of the hearts in glossy accents as well. I heat embossed the little paws on the edge of the card with some platinum embossing powder. I added a little personal touch with the “RS” in the small circle on the left which are the initials of the pet.

That is all for me today. I am trying out a new photo technique. I hope you like the new picture styles and I hope you all have great evening and I’ll be back in a couple of days!

Lots of challenges for this card today!

Dori, this is such a sweet pet sympathy card, tailored for both the pet that passed and the boys who will miss him! Well done! Thank you again for popping by my blog just to share a kind word on my card. I need to remember to browse the 'competitions' cards and do the same more often! And the pic of you and your son is priceless, especially when getting them to take pics is so much harder at this age :-) My one and only, a boy... correction, now a man at 18, has opted to go to the local community college this fall and I am thrilled beyond words to have him home one more year! They most certainly grown up way too fast!!!
