This week, two different friends lost their dogs. I made these sympathy cards to send to them.
Size: Vertical side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started by stamping and die cutting the dog images. I also die cut two small stitched rectangles while I had the die cut machine out.
I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink to water color in the dogs. Using an ink blending tool and Distress Inks, I added some color to the white rectangles. I tried to keep the colors soft and airy.
While the dogs drying, I created my card bases. I used kraft card stock for each card base. I added some wood grain stamping for interest.
I added the sentiment with Versa Mark Ink and gold embossing powder. Then I adhered the white rectangles to each card base. Next, I adhered the dogs. I felt that something was missing, so I dug through my box of pre-stamped and pre-colored images. I found some tiny butterflies and a flower. I think these small images finished off the card nicely.
