Hello friends. Today I have a bit of a somber card to share with you. It’s one of those things that we have to create and they are horrible to make when you actually need them. So, I try to sprinkle them in here and there when something strikes me and keep a small stash to use when they are needed.
Today I’m using Miss Ink Stamps stencils and a sentiment stamp set to create a pet sympathy card. The stamp set lends to cats or dogs but I did kept mine generic since it’s not for a specific reason.
I started by inking up both layers of the Cloud Hearts stencils in a rainbow fashion. In my mind this was like the reference to animals crossing the rainbow bridge. Once both layers were completed, I removed those stencils and taped down the Big Paws stencil and spread Lawn Fawn fairy dust stencil paste through it for a subtle glittery look of paws over the whole card front.
I set that aside to dry and got the other layers of my card ready. I cut a black piece of cardstock to A2 size and adhered it to a white card base. Then I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Pet Sympathy stamps set on black cardstock and cut it out with a sentiment banner.
After the panel was dry, I trimmed it down to 4×5.25 inches and popped it up with foam tape on the card front. Next, I popped up the sentiment banner too.
Today, I also stamped a secondary sentiment on the inside. I chose to do it in 2 colors so they could overlap a bit and then also stenciled one paw using the same Big Paws stencil to tie the front in to the inside a little more.
