Most people have heard of the Rainbow Bridge. It's a wonderful poem for people who've lost a pet. One of the requests I get at my markets is for sympathy cards for someone who's lost a pet, so naturally I thought of the Rainbow Bridge idea.
I think these Lawn Fawn stamps (tree, dog, cat, ball) from the Critters in the 'Burbs set are perfect for this card:
One thing I haven't learned, though, is how not to futz. True, I made 6 of these - 3 dog and 3 cat, but geez ... the cutting! WHAT was I thinking?!
Some of the layering is because I was lazy and also a doofus. My arm is still sore, so the thought of sponging clouds on 6 cards made me think of alternatives. Of course, this was easy - I went to my HA clouds background stamp. But this is a vertical card and the stamp is horizontal, so I ended up with a big white space at the bottom of the panel that needed to be covered. Green. I made it green. The grass is from a MFT Die-namincs die, and I used both parts of it on each card. The front one is popped up on a long row of Dimensional edging.
I love all that dimension!
Here is the cat version:
... and up close:
Yeah, yeah, still with the baker's twine. Did I tell you I bought it in every color? Yep? You'll be seeing a LOT of it this year! :)
In other news, today I get to do my Maryland Sales Taxes for Jul-Dec 2010. Don't you wish you were me? Didn't think so. I've also re-organized my Google Reader and found a few more challenge blogs along the way. You'll be seeing those later this week. Maybe even today, if that Creative Avoidance thing doesn't quit popping up.
Thanks for stopping by!
