Missing Piece

I hope your week is off to a great start!

We all love our pets and for most, they are much more than pets...they are family members. When you lose one it's like your family has a missing piece.

For my pet sympathy card, I used several large puzzle piece punches to create the area for the image. I put the puzzle pieces together and attached them (temporarily) to a larger piece of black card stock. then stamped on top and colored with markers. I sponged a little blue ink around the edges, removed the center piece then attached them permanently. To make the black mat for the missing piece, I punched two black puzzle pieces and attached them to the original piece.

I used a stencil I made with a piece of acetate and some scallop edge scissors to create the cloudy sky background. The greeting was stamped on top to finish my 5.5 x 4.25 (A2) card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!

Great idea for this card. It really is a big lose and I have several pets and really hate thinking about the day they are no longer with me.
