Good Morning! I needed to make a pet sympathy card and I pulled out a retired Stampin' Up! set called 'D is for Dog'. I haven't used this set much, but I'm so glad I kept it.
The upper part of my background is dry embossed using my cloudy day embossing folder and the lower half of my background is actually designer series paper that I stamped the paw print on using black ink. This is a great way to use of some of the paper from the paper stack packs.
I have a black strip of card stock across my card and I made that by punching it using my scallop border punch and I added a row of white dots using my white gel pen all along the scallops.
My main puppy image was created by stamping the dog and then I added some green grass along the puppy's feet using my certainly celery marker. Then I used my spritzer tool and a black marker and I spritzed all around the puppy image. Next, I added some rhinestone gems for the collar and I stamped and cut out the dog bone. My puppy image layer is placed on my card using dimensionals.
To finish the front of my card I added some white ribbon and my sentiment. My sentiment also has dimensionals underneath it. I rarely ever stamp on the inside of my card, but this time I decided to give it a try. Below is a photo of the inside.
I took the dog paw stamp and I stamped a few paw prints. Then I used a scrap piece of paper and I used it as a mask to spritz some black ink along the left side and over paw prints.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you liked my card! It's going to be a hot one here in PA so it looks like the kids and I will be swimming a lot this week. Have a great day & stay cool!
