Religious Sympathy Card and Sympathy for Loss of a Family Pet

Hi, guys! Hope all is well!  I am going to share a few more sympathy cards I made this week. Unfortunately, I have had the need to make quite a few of them this past week.  I am hoping that I won't be needing to make more of them in a long while!

This first one up was made for a friend to give to a pet owner who lost their dog.  I embossed paws for the background on this one.


Supplies:
Stamps: Vap Scrap, Papertrey Iink, Rubber Stampede
Ink: Versafine Black, Stampin' Up , Distress Ink
Paper: Desert Storm, Gina K Designs (White)
Misc.: Clear Embossing Powder, Ribbon, Spellbinders Hearts Dies, Oval Punch

This next card was made for a friend who requested a religious sympathy card.


Supplies:
Stamps: Close To My Heart, Greenbrier International
Ink: Versamark, Archival Black, Distress Ink
Paper: Gina K Designs
Misc.: Ranger Gold Embossing Powder, Gold Cord

I heat embossed the Praying Hands image using Ranger Gold Embossing Powder.   I thought this was a simple design, but dramatic.

I hope the next round of cards I make and share are for some fun occasions!

Until next time!

I'm sorry you have a need for these sympathy card, but what lovely and uplifting creations you have made to give encouragement to those hurting.

I think non-pet owners don't understand the hurt from losing a pet and it's nice of you to show that you understand with that pet card. That paw print ribbon is so cute!

I love the embossed paws on the background of the first one -- adds a neat touch!

I have to say this is the first card I've seen like this for a pet. I wonder why that is. Pets are part of our family for years, so it only makes sense. Kudos to you! You are a good friend! It's cute and wonderful! Love the other as well, just beautiful with the gold embossed praying hands! Striking!

The second one is definitely dramatic but in a nice, simple way. They're both great, and I hope the people who receive them feel just a little better by the beauty of your cards.

Love the praying hands on that shade of paper. So beautiful. It would be beautiful for a praying-for-you card, too.

They are such beautiful cards, and the little paw prints are a fabulous touch....it's just a shame that they're needed for such sad times.
