Friday Die Day

Hello friends

It's Feline Friday Die Day!
This week I've chosen Pawing Around - Cat.

This very cute set consists of 5 template pieces measuring approximately:

Hearts - 7cm x 6.2cm
Paw print 1 - 1.9cm x 2.2cm
Paw print 2 - 1.3cm x 1.3cm
Paw print 3 - 0.9cm x 0.9cm

This is what they look like cut/embossed.
I've chosen to make a cat sympathy card.
I noticed most shops now stock sympathy cards for the loss of a pet.
 
I used the heart featuring the cat face, traced around the heart shape and cut out to create
a cream card backing.
My card base - a strip of dotty patterned paper adhered down the left hand side.
It was then simple...stamped the sentiment down the right hand side (Lawn Fawn stamp),
placed the heart bottom central to the card front. 
Added a paw print (middle size) and flower - the flower is Marisa's Bouquet -
this set hasn't left my craft desk, I love the assortment of flowers and leaves.

Pawing Around - Cat is available on the website here - a special price today!
Pawing Around - Dog is also available here, again at the special price.
Of course, the card design would work equally well for both cat and dog.

Take care friends - wishing you all a 'purr-fect' weekend!

Hello Christine
Thats strange ! I had a call from my daughter in Oz yesterday, her cat had been killed in the road, and the Vet had just brought it back in a Bio Degradeable bag, to bury. She seems OK! but Taylah Lily
will be sad when she comes home from school!
A sympathy card seems apt for me today!
Take care
Love Marg

Hi Christine,
Lovely idea today, with the increasing amount of cards to and from pets available in the shops it's nice to have the resources to make our own, I love what you have done with it too!
Marg, what sad news from your daughter, poor Taylah will be so upset when she hears about their poor cat.
It amazes me still how we get so attached to our furry family members so fast, we are totally smitten with our two kittens, they have completely taken over our lives!
So these dies will be on my list!
Have a great weekend Everyone!
Hugs
Sandra xxxxx

It's lovely, a great idea this Friday Die Day - really shows the potential much better than just seeing the die itself. Thanks

Hi Christine
This is an unusual card today. Is the sentiment a die too? These dies would also make great cards for animal charities too.
Enjoy your day
Lesley

Janice said...

Not a cat lover myself, I'm afraid but, a clever use of the die. You've made a lovely card Christine.
