Cats and Dogs Shaker Cards
I'm here to share some cards created for my pet loving friends.
As a pet owner, I know how important they become in our lives and in our families. Pets are indeed beloved family members.
The cards I created celebrate two different phases of pet ownership - the new adoption of a pet, and the heartbreaking loss of a furry family member.
Creative Embellishments has several pet-centered chipboard, stencils, and shakers to check out.
My first card celebrates a very exciting and happy event for a family, the adoption of a new dog.
My friend rescued a puppy and I wanted to send my warm welcome using the adorable Creative Embellishments - Dog Shaker.
I kept the chipboard treatment simple- just painting the base with ivory acrylic paint, and leaving the shaker walls unpainted natural chipboard. I inked the edges lightly with brown ink to blend more with my paper choice.
Lastly, I added the welcome sentiment with a simple fine-point sharpie. This allows me the freedom to customize and add pup's name making the family feel special.
The shaker was filled with Buttons Galore/28Lilac Lane's Bottle Mix called Mediterranean Shore -Bottle Mix. It's a fun mix of buttons, beads, pearls, heart shaped and more with a gorgeous peaceful color palate.
The paper used on this card is the beautifulAuthentique Paper -Purebred Collection with cat and dog themed papers.
Next is a kitty shaker card created for a necessary but somber event for a family; saying goodbye to their beloved friend. It's in these times when that extra thoughtful card is most appreciated.
This card was created to say goodbye to a beloved pet who will be missed dearly. Sweet Liz, the cat, was a beautiful Calico. I was able to customize the Creative Embellishments - Cat Head Shaker and make my own calico using inks and a sponge.
I also added Liz's name to the card with a sharpie. Not perfect but the family appreciated the little personal touch.
Thanks for visiting here today. I appreciate your time.
