Celebrate Cats and Dogs - Shaker Cards with Pet Friendly Products


Celebrating Our Cats and Dogs 

Hello friends.  As we say goodbye to a rather challenging year, I want end 2020 with a "PAWsitive" post celebrating the furry members of our families.  Pets bring such comfort and joy into our lives. 

I appreciate when the crafting companies like Authentique and Creative Embellishments share their love for pets by offering pet themed crafting products.
Through the years Authentique has featured cats and dogs in their collections such as:

The cards today were created using the Companions collection  - just one of the fabulous pet themed collections from Authentique.  I used the 6"x6" paper pad.  

I love the mini sentiment cards that are included in the collection.  The first card, a kitty card, has the following sentiment inside the shaker paw: 
"Some things just fill your heart without trying." 

The cat chipboard shaker set is from Creative Embellishments  and was painted with cream acrylic paint, and topped with Ranger Crackle Accents  to create texture.  Gold glitter was lightly sprinkled on the Crackle Accents while it was still wet.  This allowed the glitter to permanently set into the crackle accents and not fall off.

The Dog Shaker Card

In the spirit of being equal, I created a companion dog shaker card using the Authentique's Companions collection.  The adorable sentiment here says: 
"The path to my heart is paved with paw prints."

  1. These cards are heartwarming and gorgeous in equal measure - much like precious pups and darling kitties themselves.

    Immensely happy wishes for a serene, safe, joy-filled, and wonderfully blessed 2021 coming your way!
