It’s Hard to Say Goodbye Cat Sympathy

A friend asked me to make a card for her to give to one of her friends that recently had to put down their furry little guy. I decided to make two cards for her to choose from and used opposite colors. I sponged Dapper Denim and Memento Tuxedo Black on scrap Whisper White, then punched out a 2 ½” circle. The cat die is from Poppystamps and it is popped up with Dimensionals. I tried using the Dapper Demin Enamel heart on both, but it faded into the background against the banner of Dapper Denim, so I used the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends marker to color it black. Not a typical color for a heart, but I felt it was ok on this. The Simple Stripes Embossing Folder gives the perfect subtle background. The inside of the cards read, “It’s hard to say Goodbye to such a Special Companion.”
