Cat Sympathy Card

I needed to send my Sister-In-Law a sympathy card on the loss of their  family cat. I don't have many cat stamps, and the ones I do are funny or goofy; images that appealed to me because of their character and those ones do NOT loan themselves to a respectful card. So, this is what I came up with ...

I used a 4x6 Hero Arts card - that came printed with this pretty water colour wash. I stamped the cat face (All Night Media?) in charcoal ink on a white card stock scrap then cut it out with a Nestability label. The edges were sponged with blue ink and brown. The leaves (Sizzix) were cut out of white card and sponged with the same blue ink for consistency.

The words are by Stampin' Up.  On the envelope,  I used two stamps - a vine and dots ... both are 'Stamps By Judith' images.  I like how soft it looks, fitting for the card itself.

Sympathy cards are sure no fun to make. They will miss their family pet for a long time.

Thanks for stopping by
