Doggie, Sale-A-Bration, Stampin up, Sympathy Card

Happy Tails – Pup Sympathy Card

Hey All,

Hope you are having a great day, and if you are near Denver/Colorado Springs, I hope you made it through the blizzard. I miss the snow& those majestic mountains! I wouldn’t have minded a couple of snow days myself;)

Recently also in Colorado Springs, my mother had to put down their family dog, Dawson. He was the sweetest German Shepherd that I’ve ever known. A big, fluffy, sweet, bear of a dog. I will miss his heart.

I wanted to make her a sympathy card since I know that would cheer her up a little, so this is what I came up with. I made this quick, easy card in about 10 minutes. I even made a tutorial if you would like to check it out HERE

I made 2 versions of the card, which one do you like better? I’ve linked all the materials needed for the card below. Thanks for stopping by, and please comment to let me know you were here! 🙂

Big announcement coming soon!!! xoxo

Paper Pumpkin February 2019 Grown with Kindness- Alternative Cards

Hi Ya’ll!

I just wanted to share with you 2 alternative cards you can make using all of the supplies in the February 2019 Grown with Kindness Paper Pumpkin kit. You do not need anything additional to make these! Unless you want to use your own adhesive.

Card #1: (The one on the left)

Items you will use:
1 Black Card Base
1 Piece of vellum, 1 Sheet of the succulents in the cups, 1 Sheet of the succulents

Let’s start with the first card and the measurements. I’m just keeping this high level, so if you would like the step by step, please check out my You Tube video HERE.

First you’ll cut the top off of the coffee cup succulent paper right at the top of the skinny cactus in the brown cup.  Cut the white part off so that piece will be 2″ x 1-7/8″. Save the other pieces with the little bit of green on it for the #2 card. Then turn it and cut it down the middle of that same cactus so that piece will be 3″ tall by 1-3/8″. Next cut the succulent paper into 3 sizes, 1-6/8″ x 1-3/8″, 2″ x 1-1/2″ and 2″ x 1-1/4″. Stamp your sentiment on the white piece in Fresh Fig. Then adhere all of the pieces cut as shown with the adhesive dots or a tape runner to the piece of vellum. Then turn it over and only put adhesive on the backs of where the paper is, so none of the glue will show through the vellum. Then you can adhere the vellum to the black card stock. Add 3 of the clear enamel dots and you are done!

For Card #2:

Items you will use:

1 white card base, 1 piece of gray card stock, plus 1 other piece of gray,

1 Sheet of the succulents in the cups, 1 Sheet of the succulents

Stamp your sentiment on the white square that we set aside from Card #1. Adhere it to the gray card stock and cut around it. Just leave about 1/4″ border around it. Then you will cut 4 pieces of the succulent paper all the same size, 2-1/2″ x 1-3/8″. Adhere those evenly to the larger piece of gray card stock. Then tie the white baker’s twine around the back and adhere. I usually make a separate bow and then adhere that to the front with a glue dot. Adhere 3 clear enamel dots and then you are done!

I hope you enjoyed making these cards as much as I enjoyed making the tutorials!
