Celebrate Pet Rescue with a handmade dog adoption card!

Celebrate Every Dog Adoption!

I released a cat adoption card last week …so here is one for the pups!

A pet adoption is a life saving event so why not honor the event with a card!  Thinking of any dog sitting in a shelter waiting for a family breaks my heart and I wince at the thought of how many never make it to a family – so when adoption magic does happen I get very excited!
I am really happy with how this card turned out, do you like it?

It is a very simple design.  I used a base recycled card stock that I stained black with Distress Stain, pearlized and randomly stamped with opaque paw prints.  I layered a piece of black card stock on the front that I embossed with paw prints.  You can find the paw print embossing folder I used at JoAnne’s for a just a few bucks – I love that design! The dog silouhette is hand painted – first with heavy gesso and again with white acrylic paint

I added a paw print ribbon (I believe Michael’s has similar ribbon) with a wooden heart that is painted red and stamped with paw prints.  I buy these little wood hearts in bulk – you can do so much with them!

The inside of the card is plain white card stock and it reads ” Some of the world’s greatest love stories began at the local shelter.”
