Pop-Up Pet Sympathy Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog. It's also a new month! Our October Hostess is Kathleen Adams, and our Guest Designer is Joseph Nguyen. You will enjoy seeing Joseph's creations this month!

Here is Kathleen's challenge for this week:  "Today is World Card Making Day! So make a card! It can be any shape and any theme you want to make."

Of course I made a Pop-Up card using dies by Karen Burniston, but unfortunately not a happy card to have to make.

Friends of ours said goodbye to their sweet furry boy, and I wanted to let them know we were thinking of them. Elvis was such a good dog, and one of the few dogs that our Mr. Cooper liked to hang out with. I used a journal card for the card front, penning the sentiment with a black marker then going over the lines with a brown marker.

Inside, I used the House Pivot Panel die, turned upside down with hearts die cut from the centre of three panels.

I had the patterned paper and dog stickers in my stash, and pulled out the (retired) Pet Accessory dies for some elements too. Because Elvis was black with a white chest, I also used the cute dog from the Cat and Dog die set, cutting it from black and white card stock.

I backed the centre heart opening with red card stock, and added die cut hearts above and below the other heart openings.

Below is a 'front and inside' shot for those that like them for their Pinterest boards.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C455.

Great job. I'm sure this will be a keepsake for Elvis' 'parents'.
