|Our sweet "Angel" - Queenie's sister|
Saturday, October 12, 2019
Today I am sharing an emotional card for me. We lost our sweet "Angel" this past June after her battle with cancer, and we , along with her sweet sister, "Queenie" miss her so.
I used the Sizzix™ Tim Holtz® Friendship Words: Script Die for the word “Remember” along with the Stampendous “Feline Fun” stamp for the kitty image and the Simon Says Love Pawprints Die for the pawprint.
I think that Queenie remembers Angel, but most likely by now, that memory may be fading a bit.
Queenie now has the luxury of two people completely doting on her:-) Unfortunately, we found out at her last dental cleaning in September, that she has developed FORLs (a common ailment for cats that causes their teeth to turn into bone). She had to have two teeth extracted but overall she is doing fairly well for her age. We are praying that she will be with us for many years to come, but also realize that Queenie is almost 15 , so each day is a gift :-)
I am linking this card to the Animal Friends #79 “Cats” Challenge, the Dies R Us “Anything Goes with Dies Carried by the DRU Store ” Challenge (Sizzix™ Tim Holtz® Friendship Words: Script Die ) and theAlphabet “O is for One Word Sentiment” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to drop by the above challenge sites yet, I hope you do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
Stamp the kitty image onto white cardstock with Staz-On™ Black Ink and heat set with a heat tool. Using watercolor pencils and water-based markers, watercolor the image (again I used “Queenie’s” colors ). Die cut the image with a stitched rectangle die and adhere to a piece of espresso cardstock, trim close to the edge.
Add a piece of 5/8” espresso satin ribbon to the right side of the panel, wrapping the ends behind the panel. .
Die cut three of the script word die, glue all three together to create a thicker die cut. Use a gold paint marker pen to color the letters and set aside to dry.
Die cut the pawprint die from espresso and light brown cardstock.
Layer a panel of light brown cardstock onto a piece of espresso cardstock. Mount the main focal image onto the card front with dimensional foam or chipboard.
Add the gold script word onto the ribbon along with the olive buttons - use thin strips of espresso cardstock to create “thread”.
Mount the layered pawprint die using dimensional foam or chipboard and use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the cat’s eyes.
Once the shimmer paint has dried, use a white paint pen to add highlights to the cat’s eyes to finish off the card.
