Pet Sympathy Cards – My Favorite Things

Hi everyone! Sympathy cards are the kind of cards you hope you never need to use. Unfortunately saying goodbye is part of life, also to your beloved pet friend. With sympathy cards I like to keep things clean and simple, and with the Best Friend Faces die-namics it is easy to do so.

Before I’m diving into the cardmaking process, I want to mention we have a challenge running over at Cloud9 Crafts. The theme of this month is “Big Sentiments”. Head over to Instagram to see how you can participate and be eligible to win a prize!

As you can see I created 2 color variations to the card. You can customize the colors to the pet who passed away, giving it a personal touch. For the brown dog I used the colors: Vanilla Malt, Ground Coffee, and Paper Bag. For the grey dog I used the colors: Fog, Narwhal, and Storm Cloud.

To add more interest and dimension to the dog faces, I die cut the ears and spot multiple times and stacked it on top of each other. Adding highlights with a white gel pen to elements can also really bring it to life.

On the bottom of the card I stamped a sentiment from Critter Condolences with VersaMark ink, and heat set the white embossing powder. Next to the sentiment, I stamped paws with VersaFine Onyx Black ink, and heat set the clear embossing powder. Other than that, I did not want to add anything else to the card, keeping it clean and simple.

I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
