Celebrating Our Cats and Dogs 


Hello friends.  As we say goodbye to a  rather challenging year, I want end 2020 with a "PAWsitive" post  celebrating the furry members of our families.  Pets bring such comfort  and joy into our lives. 


I appreciate when the crafting companies  like Authentique and Creative Embellishments share their  love for pets by offering pet themed crafting products.


Through the years Authentique has featured  cats and dogs in their collections such as:

The Purebred Pets collection

Companions collection

Devoted collection

The ephemera sheet from Christmas Greetings 

The ephemera sheet from the Rejoice Collection

The cards today were created using the Companions  collection - just one of the fabulous pet themed collections from  Authentique.  I used the "6x6" paper pad.  


I love the mini sentiment cards that are  included in the collection.  The first card, a kitty card, has the  following sentiment inside the shaker paw: 

"Some things just fill your heart without  trying." 

The cat chipboard  shaker set is from Creative Embellishments  and was painted with cream acrylic paint, and topped with 

Ranger Crackle  Accents  to create texture.  Gold glitter was lightly sprinkled  on the Crackle Accents while it was still wet.  This allowed the glitter  to permanently set into the crackle accents and not fall off.


The shaker was filled  with Velvet  sequin mix from Buttons Galore and More then embellished with a  3D Paw Print Buttons from Buttons Galore

The Dog Shaker Card


In the spirit of being equal, I created a  companion dog shaker card using the Authentique's Companions collection. The adorable sentiment here says: 

"The path to my heart is paved with paw  prints."


The dog card used similar products: chipboard dog shaker set from Creative Embellishments, Doo Dadz Caribbean Sea shaker mix  from Buttons Galore, brown gingham ribbon, and  3D Paw Print Buttons from  Buttons Galore


Thank you for  stopping here today and happy crafting.
