Sympathy Card


Hello!  So are you a cat person or a dog person?  My best friend is a cat person (but I love her anyways) and when she lost her furbaby, I can empathize with her loss as I have my own furbabies of the canine variety.  So I made this card with her in my thoughts and prayers with this Quietfire Design stamp.

The base is a an A2 sized card made with black card stock and the  burgundy matting is made with the largest of the Spellbinders Matting Basics A.  I then stamped this sentiment in black Versafine and die cut out with the Spellbinders Deckled rectangles. Before I removed it from the die, I sponged a bit of Distress InksAntique Linen along the edges.  The frayed straw was something I picked up at a Scrapbook Expo many years ago that I never used - just goes to show you that hoarding pays off.  :)

The cat is a piece of wood veneer that I painted gold over.  He was just perfect for this card.

Sympathy cards are hard to make - I hope this gives you an idea of how you can use this wonderful stamp.  Thank you so much for looking!
