Hi Stampers. Recently I was asked to make some pet sympathy cards for a friend. I knew right away that I wanted to use the Pampered Pets Suite. It’s soooo cute and comes with everything – stamps, dies, dsp, twine, elements…

This Pampered Pets card is VERY basic.  It starts with a Real Red card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Then, it’s followed by a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic Black CS and then a 3-3/4″ x 5″ layer of the Playful Pets DSP.

You may find this chart handy to have around when cutting layers.

Using Real Red ink, stamp the sentiment onto a 1″ x 5-1/4″ strip of Basic White CS and then flag the end using the Triple Banner Punch. Add a few dimensionals to the back of the strip and wrap some of the Playful Pets twine (with one of the little heart trinkets on it) around the banner on the left side. Peel off the backing from the stampin’ dimensionals and adhere it to the card front.

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic Black CS followed by a 3/4″ x 5″ layer of Basic White with a 3/4″ x 5″ strip of the Playful Pets DSP. As a final there is a cat (from the DSP) lounging on the left side.

Stampin’ Tip: A brother scan-n-cut was used to die cut out the cat.  I actually scanned and cut an entire sheet of the cats and an entire sheet of the dogs and kept the excess in a clear envelope inside the stamp case.
