Card Of The Week

D is for Dog #115784 Sympathy Card

 

D is for Dog Sympathy Card copy

It is never very easy when someone you love passes away, even if it is a dog. My Mom's friend, Mabel just lost a valuable part of her family, their dog Bruno. He was a treasured and beloved Fur Baby that was part of their life for 11 years. It is hard to know what to say during this difficult time, but I knew that I had to make a Dog Sympathy Card for her.

2) Cut a piece of Pool Party Card Stock to measure 4" x 5 1/4". Ink up the "Paw Print" from the D is for Dog Stamp Set using the VersaMark Pad. Stamp it as shown along the bottom. Repeat this process and make sure that you reink after each time you stamp.
3) Cut a piece of 1/2" Chocolate Chip Scallop Dots Ribbon to measure 6" using the Paper Snips. Adhere the 1/2" Chocolate Chip Scallop Dots Ribbon (dots side down) to the Pool Party Card Stock using SNAIL Adhesive. Adhere the Pool Party Card Stock to the Chocolate Chip Card Base using 4 Stampin' Dimensionals.
4) Cut a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock to measure 1 7/8" X 2". Ink up the "Dog" Stamp from the D is for Dog Stamp Set using Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp it towards the bottom. Punch all four corners using the 3/16" Corner Punch.

Ink up a Sponge Dauber using Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad and apply ink only to the edge of the Wing as shown. Slightly bend using your fingers, the part of the Wing that attaches to the Dog's Body. This will create a little lip that you will apply the Multipurpose Glue to. Only use a very small amount of Multipurpose Glue. In fact if you apply too much, simply wipe the excess off with your finger. You only need a little bit. If you use too much it will show through the White Vellum Card Stock. Attach the Wing to the Dog's Body as shown. Attach the stamped Very V
anilla Card Stock
to the Card Front using 4 Stampin' Dimensionals.

7) Punch out another piece of Chocolate Chip Card Stock using the Curly Label Punch. Cut it in 2 using the Paper Snips.You will have to trim a little off of the pointy edges so they won't show. Adhere the trimmed Chocolate Chip halves to the back of the Very Vanilla Curly Label using SNAIL Adhesive. Adhere these layers to the Card Front using 4 Stampin' Dimensionals.
8) I bet that you would agree that this is the perfect Card to say what you want to during this difficult time. Again, I would like to say how sorry Mom and I are for the passing of Bruno.

INSTRUCTIONS:

1) Cut a piece of Wild Wasabi Card Stock to measure 1 1/2" x 8 1/2".
2) Cut a piece of Pool Party Card Stock to measure 1 1/2" x 8 1/2". Punch it out using the Lace Ribbon Border Punch.
3) Cut a piece of Chocolate Chip 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon to measure 15" using the Paper Snips.
4) Weave the Chocolate Chip 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon through the punched out piece of Pool Party Card Stock. You want to make sure that you weave the Chocolate Chip 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon through the little rectangles in the patterns. The Chocolate Chip 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon has a Dot Pattern on one side and is Solid Colored on the other side. I am showing the solid side.
5) Turn the punched Pool Party Card Stock over and apply the SNAIL Adhesive to the Dot side of the Chocolate Chip 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon. Fold the Chocolate Chip 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon over adhere it to the existing Chocolate Chip 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon. This is to finish off the ends of the Chocolate Chip 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon.

8) Take a piece of scrap Whisper White Card Stock and stamp the bold circular Flowers from the Just Believe Stamp Set using Wild Wasabi Classic Stampin' Pad.
9) To get a muted look for the Flowers, you take the
Pool Party Stampin' Write Marker and scribble a little bit onto the top of a margarine container top (white side). Pick up the Pool Party color using the Blender Pen and color the Flowers. If you want the Flowers to be more intense in color, then use the Pool Party Stampin' Write Marker directly on the Flowers.

10) Using the 1 3/8" Circle Punch, punch out the stamped Flower.
11) Take a piece of scrap Chocolate Chip Card Stock and punch it using the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch.
12) Apply the Sticky Strip to the back of the punched Whisper White stamped Flower. Then adhere it to the punched out Chocolate Chip 1 3/4" Scallop Circle.
13) To apply the Scallop Circle layer onto the Book Mark, you apply 4 Stampin' Dimensionals to the Book Mark and then adhere the Scallop Circle. This way you won't have any Stampin' Dimensionals showing and sticking to the pages of your book.
14) Enjoy this Just Believe Book Mark, reading and your summer!

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Ink up the "Grass" stamp from the Inpired by Nature Stamp Set using the Old Olive Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp it onto the Pretty in Pink sheet of 12" x 12" Lap of Luxury Designer Series Paper, towards the bottom. You will have to repeat this process at least 5 times to stamp the entire width of the Designer Series Paper. Remember to reink after each time you stamp the image.
2) Cut a piece of Vellum Card Stock to measure 4" x 4". Ink up the Butterfly Stamp from the Strength & Hope Stamp Set using Rose Red Classic Stampin' Pad and stamp it onto the Vellum Card Stock. Reink the stamp and repeat this process.
3) Carefully cut out each of the Butterflies using the Paper Snips. Fold the Butterfly over the edge of the Bone Folder. This will give it some dimension without creasing it. Also, this will help to put a very thin amount of glue on it.
4) Vellum will show the Multipurpose Liquid Glue if you put too much on it, therefore I take a plastic cup & turn it upside down and put a line of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on it. Hold the Butterflies by the wings and gently dip the body (where it is folded) into the Multipurpose Liquid Glue. You only need a small amount. Glue the Butterflies to the Scrapbook Page as shown. Set aside to allow the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to dry.
5) Cut a piece of Old Olive Card Stock to measure 5" x 6 3/4". Punch along one side using the Eyelet Border Punch. Adhere to the Scrapbook Page using SNAIL Adhesive.
6) All that is left is to chose that special photo and adhere it to the Old Olive Card Stock using SNAIL Adhesive.

1) Cut a piece of Real Red Card Stock to measure 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". Fold it in half and crease it using a Bone Folder. The crease should be along the top.
2) Cut a piece of Bashful Blue Card Stock to measure 3 3/4" x 5".
3) Cut a piece of Whisper White Card Stock to measure 3 3/4" x 5". Punch the corner of the Whisper White Card Stock by inserting the corner into the Scallop Trim Corner Punch and pressing down.

5) Punch out 2 Birds out of Whisper White Card Stock using the Two-Step Bird Extra Large Punch.
6) Ink up the Sponge Dauber by pressing it into the Bashful Blue Classic Stampin' Pad. Check to make sure that there is a good amount of ink on the Sponge Dauber. Ink up the edges of both of the Whisper White Birds and don't forget the wings. TIP: You should press the Sponge Dauber onto a scrap piece of paper to remove the excess ink. The ink will dry over time and harden the sponge tip. You can store the inked up Sponge Dauber in a Zip Lock Bag with the ink's name on it. That way when you want to use it in the future, you don't waste another Sponge Dauber.
