So many of my friends have recently lost fur babies. Having lost many fur babies over the years, I know that pet sympathy cards are truly appreciated. When I saw the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch, it was a pet sympathy card in the making. I pretty much followed the sketch exactly-
I created a rainbow panel with a trio of Distress Oxide inks. (Candied Apple, Fossilized Amber and Faded Jeans) After my panel was complete, I lightly spritzed with water. I adhered my rainbow panel and a thin strip of black to White Daisy cardstock and then die cut with a stitched frame die. I prefer to adhere all my layers together and then die cut for a seamless look. The paw prints were die cut with textured back cardstock. My sentiment is from the Rainbow Bridge stamp set, which has made a comeback in the Online Only section of my website.
I created my rainbow panel slightly larger than needed, to insure that I had a smooth finish on the edges. I took part of the left over strip and added it to the inside of my card.
