Celebrate Our Dogs and Cats - Shaker Cards with Authentique Paper Collections


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. 

Authentique  LOVES our furry companions as well.  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 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.  

Since Authentique loves cats and dogs equally, I created a companion dog shaker card using the Companions collection.  The adorable sentiment here says: 
"The path to my heart is paved with paw prints."

The dog card used similar products:  chipboard dog shaker set from Creative Embellishments, Doo Dadz Caribbean Sea shaker mix from Buttons Galore, brown gingham ribbon, and 3D paw button also from Buttons Galore.
