Pet Sympathy cards

One of my friends was complaining about not being able to find good pet sympathy cards and suggested to me that I make a bunch and sell them to stores. Its a flattering suggestion, but not one I’m about to actually do, as I’m not wishing to making my hobby into a business. That said, I thought it would be nice to make her a few she can keep on hand for a future occasion she may require one. She is a huge dog lover and has two of her own. One hopes not to need sympathy cards, but the reality is that we all need them sometimes.

I used a small SSS stamp set to make these along with two Crazy Dog images from Tim Holtz. The middle card has a space left for the pet’s name to be written in and is my take on something seen on Pinterest. I added a sticky note so she knows to add the pet name. PP is from a Recollections collection I’ve had a long time. They all have a sentiment inside with a bit of decoration too. These are the first cards I’ve made for almost a month. Had fun doing them.

  1. Thanks so much Lisa. I try to have a few different style cards on hand but most are birthday cards or thank you ones.


  2. Thanks Gerry – I’m sure she will like them and she is always complimentary about cards I make. My friends make great cheer leaders along with all of you stampin buddies.

  3. I’m so glad you had fun doing them. They are wonderful and I’m sure your friend will appreciate them. It’s so difficult to lose the furry parts of our family and sending a card is a great idea.

  4. I know exactly what you mean. I still miss our last dog and this one just turned 3 so that is how long she has been gone.
    Glad you like my effort and thanks for commenting.
