Don’t be sad

Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day! I’ve popped in this morning to share another Kat Scrappiness Creative Influencer inspiration project with you! As much as I enjoyed making this mini slimline, it really tugged at my heart strings. This stamp set was part of the release that came out shortly after we had to put Milo, one of our inside cats, to rest in early August due to cancer. He was just a few weeks shy of his fifth birthday and was such a sweet boy. But he’s in a better place, and this card is dedicated to him. I used the amazing Rainbow Bridge stamp set along with the Mini Slimline Stitched Rope Dies. I know I’ve mentioned many times that I absolutely love the selection of 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline dies available at Kat Scrappiness, which is my go-to size.

I cut a mini slimline size card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a die cut layering panel from CutCardStock Pop Tone Lemon Drop cardstock and a trimmed panel from 80# Solar White cardstock. Using the Rainbow Bridge stamp set, I stamped the bridge on 110# Solar White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers (and added some clear sparkle overlay), then fussy cut it. I stamped the kitty before adhering the bridge to the white cardstock panel, and then stamped the sentiment. The finishing touch was adding several Eyelet Outlet yellow enamel dots. I also made a coordinating envelope from Pop Tone Lemon Drop and Sunny Studio Striped Silly cardstock using the Mini Slimline Snail Mail Envelope Dies.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock along with another die cut layering panel from CutCardStock Pop Tone Lemon Drop cardstock. I embellished it with strips of white cardstock and striped pattern paper, and stamped another sentiment from the Rainbow Bridge stamp set.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Hi Leslie, a lovely card for a sad occasion, I must admit when asked to make a card like this it was harder than we think. Thank you for sharing with us at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends and good luck in the prize draw… Megan DT LPoCF

  2. I feel your pain, I lost one of my sweet kitties at the end of July–he was only 2 and we don’t really know what happened to him. Anyway, your card is simple and beautiful for such a sad occasion. Thanks for playing with Cut It Up Challenge.
