Rainbow Bridge

Hello friends!  Welcome to March!  Although it’s still cold and even some snow coming in our forecast, I know that warmer weather is coming soon along with those pretty flowers!  I have a full weekend of crafting coming, so I’m prepared to get through this cold snap!

So I have unfortunately had to make and send a couple of pet sympathy cards as I didn’t have any on hand.  I decided that I needed to pull out a card kit from My Favorite Things called “Rainbow Bridge“, I think.  It’s no longer available, but I know they have a few things in pet sympathy.  I wanted to make sure that I still had some of these on hand when needed because I feel like these can be hard to make.

This card was made and sent out in January for someone who lost their precious fur friend.  I thought the silhouette looked a similar shape to the photos I saw.  I’ve used the stencil and dies that came with the kit along with some of the papers included in the kit with the paw prints.  I’ve also used the same papers as a liner for the inside of the envelope that you can see in the photo.

I’ve ink blended some rainbow colors and then used the die set in the kit to make the rainbow bridge and added some hearts around the silhouette pup which was popped up over the rainbow bridge.

I also needed to make a kitty one and then just decided that I was going to use this card kit to make several of these different pet sympathy cards so that I had some on hand when needed.  I thought that was a clever card kit and knew it would be very useful to create lots of pet sympathy cards with.

Sometimes it’s just good to sit down and craft to have some cards on hand that you know you’ll probably need at some point, but don’t want to hurry to try and put something together because you need it.

Hope you’ve gotten some inspiration in my post today or found some inspiration with it.  Thanks so much for stopping in today!

  1. These kinds of cards can be so difficult to make but you’ve done a great job, Vicki! I love them all, but the large pawprint card really grabs my heart. 😀 What a perfectly fabulous sentiment on that one!


  2. A beautiful selection of pet sympathy cards Vicki, love your use of colour and choice of sentiments, hope you are well


  3. aww Vicki. These are all so comforting and just adorable! Losing a pet is so difficult to deal with and these cards you made with the rainbow bridge and wonderful sentiments are sure to bring comfort to anyone who receives one. I especially love the first one with the little black dog on the rainbow bridge. My heart is just melting over them all.


  4. Just a gorgeous selection of pet sympathy cards, Vicki. They are so versatile and will be appreciated for sure. Love the rainbow bridge and the sentiments are awesome.

  5. Oh wow, Vicki, these are just beautiful, so sad but beautiful, and I think it would make someone feel so much better, they are colourful and the sentiments are so lovely and they just hit home..

  6. What a good idea to make a few up – I had to make “another” one last week for our neighbors black lab. So hard to do when you see them in the yard playing with the kids etc. I did make one extra one. I used rainbow papers – but really like this images/set that you used. Who would have thought we would send sympathy cards for a fur baby back even 20-25 years ago. They are such a part of our family now.


  7. Vicki, I love all of these cards. I actually find it harder to make pet sympathy cards than a regular one for a person. My daughter says it’s probably because I like animals more than people! Um…..I love the ones you made and know they’ll mean so much to whoever they go to whenever. Good idea to have extras on hand always.


  8. Such difficult ones to make but this is perfect, also fits our Allsorts option well, many thanks for joining in.

  9. Vicki, these cards are straight from your heart…Your Mocca was your sweet furbaby that I’m sure you never forget, as was our sweet Sydney. These cards say that you care beautifully and I am sure everyone who receives one of these will feel your love and be thankful to have a loving, caring and understanding friend like you. As soon as I can I plan to make some of these up to have on hand with what I have on hand. I needed one the other day and I had to buy one. But in the days to come I want to send something I’ve made. So thanks for sharing these with us. Smiles, Kathy
