Dog Sympathy Cards

Hello friends! No one likes to send sympathy cards, but most of us find the need for them more often than we want. Now, thanks to Scrapbook.com we have a set of Dog Sympathy and Pet Sympathy Stamp Sets that make creating this type of card a bit easier. Scrapbook.com recently sent me some of their new stamps to create with. At about the same time, I had some friends who lost their dog unexpectedly. The Dog Sympathy set was just what I needed at the moment to create a card for them.

I paired the Dog Sympathy Stamp Set with the Tim Holtz Crazy Dog Stamp Set. I stamped the dog images and colored them with Copic Markers. I then die cut them using the coordinating Crazy Dog Dies. You can find a full list of the supplies I used including affiliate links to Scrapbook.com at the bottom of this post.

Next, I took a 5.5 x 4.25 inch Neenah Flat Card Front in Solar White and die cut it using a postage edged die. You could use any frame type die from your stash. I then temporarily positioned the dog image where I wanted it and stamped the sentiment from the Dog Sympathy Stamp Set using the Scrapbook.com Hybrid Ink Pad in Black. To add a bit more interest on the panel, I stamped the paw prints from the same stamp set using the Scrapbook.com Hybrid Ink Pad in Fog. Unfortunately, the ink is so light it was nearly impossible for me to get the image to show up in the photos. In person, thought it adds a nice subtle touch to the background.

The other thing I did to add some texture to the card front was to take a wood grain embossing folder and emboss a 5.5 x 4.25 inch Neenah Flat Card Front in Solar White. I layered this onto a card base and then added a piece of coordinating cardstock and then the main card panel to complete the card.

Since I add all of my supplies out, I decided to make a second card to keep in my stash for the future. It's always nice to have this sort of card ready to go when you need it the most.

This fun die is one of Tonic's Dot and Drop Layering Dies. And I hate to admit it, but this was my first time to play with one! Besides cutting a fun design, it also provides a perfect guide for placing Nuvo Crystal, Glitter and Jewel Drops.

At the bottom of this post you will find links to all of the products I used. These links are affiliate links to shop at Scrapbook.com.  You can read my full disclosure regarding this here.

Another thing I hate to admit is I don't have any Nuvo Drops of any kind, so I decided to challenge myself and come up with another way to use those guide holes.

I began by die cutting the phrase from white cardstock and the layering back piece from a piece of Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft Stock in gold.

Since the die is a phrase, I knew I wanted to make it the focal point of my card. As I pondered what to do, the idea of using those holes as a stitching guide popped in my head! I pulled out my stash of embroidery thread and using 4 strands and a needle, I stitched along the edge to created a colorful and textured border for the phrase.

Once the stitching was completed, I knew it needed a fun background to make the die cut pop. I pulled out the Scrapbook.com Bold Stripes Stencil and placed it diagonally onto a 5.5 x 4.25 inch Neenah Flat Card Front in Solar White. I used a bit of adhesive to hold it to my craft mat and I used Therm O Web Purple Tape to hold the stencil in place while I inked it up in a rainbow of Scrapbook.com Hybrid Ink colors.

I finished off the card with a few splatters of watered down white and black acrylic paint and then adhered the sentiment using Scrapbook.com Double Sided Adhesive Foam Squares.
