Thanks for Being There

Here's a thank-you card I made for someone special...

I coloured a white card base with green cardstock and rounded the corners.  On lighter green cardstock, I stamped a tall-grass background in green and the sentiment in black and rounded the corners.  For the image, I stamped Garden Cat on vellum, coloured with pencils, rounded the corners, and attached to the card with eyelets.  Lastly I embellished with three purple flowers, attached with gem-filled brads.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Garden Cat (Hero Arts F716), sentiment (Inkadinkado), tall-grass background (Stampin' Up! Inspired by Nature)
  • Ink:  StazOn Jet Black, Stampin' Up! Certainly Celery
  • Cardstock:  Recollections, Stampin' Up
  • Vellum, flowers, brads, eyelets:  Dollar Store

Like the cute kitty stamp and how the vellum looks with the green tall grass stamped behind it.

You used a lovely grass stamp for the background. I like the cat on vellum, too. Looks like some of my white cats that live here on our farm. Thank you for sharing your project with us at The Perfect Sentiments Challenge.

Love the use of the grass background stamp. I have that and haven't used it in ages. You've inspired me. The flowers look fantastic on the grass stalks. Thanks for joining us this week at Sketch with a Twist and good luck.
