Happy Thursday crafty friends, Ashley D. here, for my last official blog post as a member of the Butterfly Reflections Ink Design Team! I’ve had such a great time sharing some of my creations with all of you these last four months! Thank you Butterfly Reflections Ink for this great opportunity, it’s be fun! Today I have a super simple card I created for friends that recently lost their beloved Boston Terrier to the Rainbow Bridge. I was so inspired by the darling new Waffle Flower Rainbow Bridge set and sentiments for this design. For those that don’t know, the Rainbow Bridge is the place where beloved pets go to wait to be reunited with their owners in heaven. I hope this brings our friends some comfort during this difficult time.
I began this card by lightly ink-blending Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, cut to 4.25” square using a trimmed down Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables (4.25x5.5). I then die cut the rainbow arches into the square using the Mama Elephant Offset Rainbow die. Each individual rainbow color (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) were also cut using the same rainbow die, and then then glued into the individual arcs using the Lawn Fawn Glue Tube.
For the cloud base, I used the same Lawn Fawn rectangle stackables and Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders, stamping the word “hugs” from the Lawn Fawn Simply Sentiments (masking out “sending”) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I die cut a little dog silhouette using the Poppy Stamps Frenchy die, and adhered it and the cloud border to the rainbow with foam adhesive.
For the sentiment, I used the Heffy Doodle ‘Sending’ die, cut from the same Paper Source Clover cardstock (one of my favorite colors!), and glued to the front. To complete the card, I attached a 4.25” square card base to the back with Tombow Mono Tape runner adhesive. I hope this little card brings comfort to our friends, and fond memories of their beloved pup. RIP little Deaglan.
