Hello.   Jennifer Snyder here to share some cards created for my pet loving friends.
As a pet owner, I know how important they become in our lives and in our families.  Pets are indeed beloved family members.
The cards I created celebrate two different phases of pet ownership – the new adoption of a pet, and the heartbreaking loss of a furry family member.
Creative Embellishments has several pet-centered chipboard, stencils, and shakers to check out.
My first card celebrates a very exciting and happy event for a family, the adoption of a new dog.
My friend rescued a puppy and I wanted to send my warm welcome using the adorable Creative Embellishments  – Dog Shaker.
I kept the chipboard treatment simple- just painting the base with ivory acrylic paint, and leaving the shaker walls unpainted natural chipboard.  I inked the edges lightly with brown ink to blend more with my paper choice.
Lastly, I added the welcome sentiment with a simple fine-point sharpie.  This allows me the freedom to customize and add pup’s name making the family feel special.

The shaker was filled with mix from Buttons Galore and More.  It’s a fun mix of buttons, beads and sequins.

 

Next is a kitty shaker card created for a necessary but somber event in the life of a pet, saying goodbye.
This card was created to say goodbye to a beloved pet who will be missed dearly. Sweet Liz, the cat, was a beautiful Calico.   I was able to customize the Creative Embellishments – Cat Head Shaker  and make my own calico using inks and a sponge.

I also added Liz’s name to the card with a sharpie.  Not perfect but the family appreciated the little personal touch.
The shaker mix used on this card is also from Buttons Galore and blends so nicely with the paper used.

 

Thank you for visiting here today.   Happy crafting.
