D: One of our fellow card swap partners recently lost her beloved Silky, Sparky. We had a variety of ideas but wanted to get this card out in a timely manner and its best to keep it simple. We were already cutting paw prints for another card on our Silhouette file #78094 called 10 Nested Dog Paw cut file from Sandi Idleman. I die cut the backdrop from Avery Elle Quilted Frame on Gina K Designs Warm Cocoa. For the sentiment, I heat embossed ‘Best Friends Will Always Be Remembered’ from My Favorite Things Critter Condolences with Gina K Designs Champagne embossing powder on Gina K Designs Black Onyx.
Lori: So sad that we needed to make more pet sympathy cards already! I made this one for my daughter Tawny’s friend who had recently lost her Golden Retriever. I love using the sketch pen, and this worked like a charm the first time around! I used Neenah Desert Storm Environment 100# cardstock for the base and Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# for the sketch/cut layer. The Dog Sketch file is from Cali Arroyo – Silhouette Design Store file ID #45970. I just used a sentiment idea inspired from a few others I found on the Internet and sketched with a sketch font – I can’t remember which font it was, forgot to write it down, and can’t find the file I used to make the card – which all tells you how my day is going! I used the gold pen – normally, I would NOT use anything with even a tiny bit of glitter on a sympathy card, but this just worked with the Golden. Anyway, the paws were cut out using the 10 Nested Dog Paw cut file from Sandi Idleman Design Store ID #78094.
