Pet Sympathy Card

My parents dog of 8 years had to be put down recently. He was a very important member of the family and will be greatly missed...especially by my Dad. I made this card for them.

The base card is of Not Quite Navy cardstock with a Kraft cardstock layer on top. I used a strip of Basic Black paper and a strip of paper with the paw prints on it from an unknown source. The ribbon is an SU retired ribbon. I paper pierced the Kraft CS on the corners and the stamps are from the "Close as a Memory" set - flowers are stamped in versamark, sentiment is stampes in black Stazon ink.

My 4-1/2 year old boy also made a card for his Papa. He even decorated an envelope that I'd made a while back (I used SU's 5-in-1 Envelope Template). Here are some pics of his card. The pics show the front of the card, the back, the back of the envelope, the inside of the card and the front of the envelope. My son is very thorough to decorate every surface. He learned how to hammer in the eyelets himself, too!

He was sad to hear of Harley's passing, but was so brave. He just gingerly wiped his tears from his eyes with his favorite blanket as he asked me questions. Then decided he should make a card for his Papa and for himself too (to "help us feel better").
