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.
