Pet Sympathy Card

Pets are family and when one of our family members passes away it can weigh heavy on our hearts. My friend's dog recently passed away and I made this Pet Sympathy Card for her. The design is simple and could be used for the loss of a cat or dog. The paw print stamp and the brown plaid paper are by Recollections. The paw prints were stamped with black ink and punched using a 1" circle punch and layered with a 1-1/4" scallop punch. I used a premade kraft card from The Paper Studio for the base and layered Early Espresso card stock by Stampin' Up! with the patterned and embossed white paper.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts With Sympathy stamp set and I added a little twine for detail. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

My Pet Sympathy Card is entered into the following challenges:
