Kitty Sympathy

A dear friend of mine was saddened in the fall because her family's beloved pet had passed away, and so I made a card for her.

Can't remember now if I sent her a white version, or a dove gray version. (Ha. My memory isn't what it used to be!)

In both versions, I used the Memory Box Small Gothic Window die to create a perch for kitty (Large Sitting Cat / Memory Box) to look outside. I cut 5 window arches, all out of white cardstock, and then glued them to one another in a stack. Love that technique of creating a sturdy, dimensional die cut.

The "outdoor" scene is from Lovely As A Tree by Stampin' Up!, colored with Copic markers.

My friend's cat was gray, and so I die-cut the paper kitty out of a pretty gray pattern.  Trying to keep the details meaningful for the recipient. :-)

Thank you so much for joining me!

These are both wonderful cards, full of a lot of thought and creativity. I have also used the Gothic Window die for sympathy cards.

Absolutely beautiful and sweet. Love the patterned cat and the window. Stacking the dies is a nice way to add dimension and still keep the card mailable. I also love the Soft Stone paper.
