Paw Prints on the Heart

Pet Loss | by karen h @ carefree creations

This card was created for the SplitcoastStampers Technique Challenge – tone on tone stenciling.

I don’t have many stencils, but this one has been calling me for a while and I needed to make a card with it.

I figured out where I wanted the heart & paw print, positioned the sentiment & stamped. After all the paw prints were stenciled, then I used the heart die to make an impression.

I *meant* to use the sentiment that says pets leave paw prints on the heart but I *just now!!!* noticed that is not what I used, ugh. Papertrey stamps don’t come with labels and I do not read backwards very well (heck, I don’t read forwards very well, lol). Oh well…it does still work (but the paw print on the heart makes more sense now, yeah?). It wouldn’t be a stamping day if I didn’t have at least one “done is done” card, right?! I gotta pay more attention when stamping!!

Thanks for taking a peek!
