Kitty Sitting Pretty

Hello, friends.  Today I have created a CAS kitty card.

As you all know - I love cats!  This cute little kitty is called "Sitting Pretty" and it's from  QKR Stampede.  The digi sentiment, which says "Cats are the Funniest People," is also from  QKR Stampede.  I started with a white card base and covered it with light blue cardstock.  I embossed a panel of light blue cardstock, attached red ribbon and bow, and affixed to the card.  I coloured the cute kitty with pencils, rounded the corners, layered onto a rounded-corner black panel, and affixed to the card with foam tape.  I trimmed the sentiment, mounted it on black cardstock, and affixed with foam tape.  Lastly I embellished with three red gems.   Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi image and sentiment:  Described above
  • Coloured pencils:  Stampin' Up!, Faber Castell
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Spots and Dots
  • Ribbon, gems:  Dollarama
