Cased Card ~ Waiting In Heaven

Today I'm sharing two versions of a card that I 'cased' from my friend Vicki Parsons of Stamped Smiles.  

Recently she posted a very glittery pet sympathy card with a rainbow background and a perfect sentiment.  It had black paw prints placed across the rainbow background... I just loved it! 

Not long after seeing her card, my daughter had to put her sweet dog Mindy down after 16 years of companionship.  Immediately I knew that was the card I wanted to make for her.  Here's my cased card. 

For this card I used Distressed Oxides to make the background.  The dog, paw prints and clouds are all die cut and added as well as the sentiment which I also cased from her card.  I mounted the completed card front on a 8" x 6" yellow cardstock card base.

Within the next week one of my close friends lost their family dog and cat!  That's when you're always glad you made more than one oxide background!  This time I simply added both animal silhouette's to the card base. 

Many thanks Vicki!  This is a great card design that is also just a good one to have on hand for this type event.
