PTI's With Sympathy: Loss of Pet

Another fairly simple card for my 2nd try @ Guest Star Stamper on PTI's forum. This one-layer sympathy for the loss of a furry friend card is one I just wanted to make because I thought that little paw would look so cute flocked. In the creative process it occurred to me to do the same flocking on my flowers. I decided to keep the tone muted, clean and simple. Let me know if you like it!
I actually had to remake this card, once I learned the "secret" to using Palette's Stamp & Stick Gluepad with flocking -- "ink" your stamp with the gluepad & pour on your flocking BEFORE heating! Yep, that's the key to make your flocking stick and it will not hurt or change the flock at all! I heated both from underneath & from the top. I even went back and added a bit more flock to my paw & reheated a second time. Try it; you'll love it!!!

What a great card, Marge. The love the flocking - never tried it and wouldn't know where to start, but I love the look of it! The zig zag border punch is the perfect finish. Love the card!

Marge, I love little furry paw. I have never tried flocking but now I want to get some. I will have to visit your blog when I do, for instructions.

Have you been to the Villages craft meeting lately? I think I will go to the next one. Maybe I'll see you there.

This is lovely Marge. Simple and
elegant at the same time. I have never tried flocking but it does sound interesting.
