Pet sympathy

If sympathy cards are hard to make, pet sympathy cards are ten times harder unless you want to get into the whole rainbow bridge thing which isn't my cup of tea at all.

So, just as with a human one, I decided to go down the simple and elegant route, using this very elegant cat stamp which is still on extended loan from my daughter. It's a Stampa Rosa stamp from 1996 called "Waiting for dinner".


I stamped it off the edge of the card - a pity to lose any of that glorious tail  but it gave the balance I wanted - and stamped a sentiment and pawprint from my stash, then just added a tiny touch of colour for the eyes, nose, ears and shadow.

  1. What a wonderful card Jane, it's a card I've never send, not received, but my guess is that some folks would appreciate one when they loose their pets who are so much part of the family. I love the cat image and your simple design, Kate x

  5. What a gorgeous card - as a mad cat lady I would be so touched to receive a card if I lost one of my cats. Such a lovely detailed stamp too.

  10. Your stamp placement is spot on. I've never yet made a card for the loss of a pet but yes I can imagine they aren't easy. This is perfect. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
