One of the things I like to send cards for is when someone loses a loved one....pet or person....doesn't matter. The loss can be equally as devastating and sometimes sending a paper hug can be a great way just to let people know they are on your mind and in your heart.
For my card today, I wanted send a message of encouragement. I think the sentiment in the stamp set Faith In Nature by Stampin' Up! offers a really nice option. Personally, I like to steer clear of the more traditional "I'm sorry" to something more uplifting.
I stamped the sentiment onto vellum using Soft Suede Stampin' Up! ink. Let dry overnight....vellum can be difficult in that it takes ink FOREVER to completely dry. Wrapping a white cotton ribbon around the focal image piece adds the finishing touch and hides the seam of the vellum.
