Pets may leave our arms

2/12/23 Rising Star at A Place To Start!

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a great week – the weekend is once again upon us! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Ally’s Angels and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #67. Sympathy cards in general are not easy for me but we all need them for humans and for pets from time to time. One of the new releases over at Kat Scrappiness several months ago (just after we had to put our Milo to rest) included the Rainbow Bridge stamp set which I fell in love with. I created this card for a young man who lost his pup.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from Keep It Simple Lemon 12×12 Collection Pack and 80# Solar White cardstock. I rounded two of the corners on the Solar White layering panel and stamped the rainbow bridge image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped it again in Versamark (over top the black) and heat embossed it in Hero Arts clear embossing powder. I colored the image with alcohol markers and fussy cut the pup to adhere on the bridge. I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set in black ink and the halo in Delicata Golden Glitz ink. I added a little shimmer to the angel pup’s wings with a Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of patterned paper from the Keep It Simple Lemon 12×12 Collection Pack. I stamped another sentiment and a paw print (from the same stamp set) in black ink.
