You Little Furball

Hello again.  One of the nicest things about making cards is that you can create a card for any occasion or situation that arises.

I recently had to make a card for a friend who sadly lost a much loved family pet due to a careless driver who was late for work and in a rush.

I knew I wanted to use a lovely set called You Little Furball and I took some inspiration from page 90 of the new Stampin' Up! catalogue; the use of Gorgeous Grunge to represent claw marks down the front of the card is a brilliant idea! 

I used the message stamp from this set - 'as time passes may the memories of your furry friend help fill the hole in your heart' - such a lovely sentiment and everything I wanted to say too.

I also used another of my favourite stamp sets, Sheltering Tree - the little flowers are so useful to fill in blank spaces.   I used an aqua painter to add a smoosh of colour to 'ground' the images.

I used the On Film Framlets die which is now sadly discontinued but the card would be just as effective with a simple black layering mat.  I punched out a little flower using a scrap of the new Watermelon Wonder cardstock to add a pop of colour.

I also did some stamping on the inside of the card:
