Pet sympathy card

Sympathy cards are never fun to make; I find pet ones even more difficult. 
I found this scrap of decorative paper and added it to a brown card base.  Using the same brown, I created a belt and buckle.  To the belt I added eyelets; the buckle was embossed with gold embossing powder; heat set. 

From shrink plastic I cut a dog bone using an old Sizzix die.  I stamped the sentiment (Jody Poesy-no longer in existence) with Tree Branch archival ink and smudged the bone with the same ink.  Shrink and dangle from the dog collar with gold metallic thread.

  1. Susan, awesome card! Love the way you made the collar with eyelets. But I'm sorry you had a use for this card. Losing a pet is so hard.
