For a Beloved Pet

Friends of mine lost their beloved dog recently, so I made them this card. I used a PTI stamp set for the sentiment and paw prints on the heart. This was done with white and cool caribbean card stock, adding a spellbinders fancy tag die for the sentiment panel, along with 2 small punched hearts. The embossed hearts background was done with a Sizzix ef, and I used the Scor-pal for the lower panel. The dog bone clip is from my stash.
Losing a pet is such a sad time, especially when you've had a companion for many years - which was the case here. I hope this card brought some comfort during such a difficult time.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Carol, This card is just over the top fabulous. I know you brought a bit of ahhpines to your friends. Losing a pet is devestating but it does help to know that there are caring people like you thinking about them. Looking at your card just brings out a soft,sweet, kind feeling in me as I'm sure it did with your friends. Thanks for sharing this with all of us.

So pretty. Yes, it's awful to lose a pet but know they'll love this pretty card. Like that little dog bone clip you here and of course the heart and all the embossing.

Carol it is so sweet that you made a sympathy card for someone who lost a pet. A lot of people just do not understand how hard that is. Your card is absolutely gorgeous! I love everything about it!

Sadly, I too had to make one of these cards this past weekend. Jim's boss had to put down their beloved Tucker. I think he was a Golden. They had gone vet poor with the old lad, but alas it was to no improvement. Your card is quite elegant in style, and I just know they were comforted by your thoughtfulness.
