CAS Pet Sympathy Card

Hi there!  It's Andrea with you today sharing a clean-and-simple pet sympathy card.  Sympathy cards of any kind are always difficult to make, but the new Fill My Heart set has some really beautiful sentiments that will speak to any pet owner and make creating this type of card so easy.

This card began with my background, which was created with the new Brick Pattern Stencil.  (I can't tell you how excited I am that Whimsy Stamps is releasing more stencils!)  I masked off the ground and ink-blended the wall with Tea Dye distress ink.  After removing the stencil and mask, I inked up the ground with Peeled Paint.  I stamped the sweet doggie from Fill My Heart with a reddish-brown ink and added the sentiment in black.

I trimmed some kraft paper to 4 1/4" x 7" and die-cut the top with a scalloped border die (You could also use a border punch).  I scored the paper at 5 1/2", adhered my ink-blended panel, and folded down the top flap.

Onto a die-cut tag, I white heat-embossed one of the paw prints from Fill My Heart.  I wrapped some jute string around the top of my panel, threading the tag through it, and adhered the whole thing to a white card.
