Sympathy Brown Dog

April 22, 2018

I need a card to send to a friend whose dog recently passed away. Making sympathy cards is very difficult for me. I don’t really have any sympathy stamp sets and I have difficulty finding sentiments that work. In the end, I think this card turned out ok.



Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card by covering the front of a white card base with some beautiful brown paper. This paper was included in one of the Simon Says Stamp Monthly Card Kits.

I stamped a dog images on some water color paper with Simon Says Stamp’s Barely Beige Ink. I used the matching die to cut the dog out. I used some Daniel Smith watercolors to paint in the dog. I added some blue to the edge of the die cut for a pop of color. I stamped and gold embossed the sentiment on the same water color paper. I used a banner die to cut out the sentiment.

I found a square of velum and adhered the dog and banner to that. I hid some foam tape behind the dog and banner to left the velum off the card base.
