My cards are being sent to Mister Harley, a beautiful cat belonging to Jenn Shurkus Creative Chick, on the occasion of his upcoming 10th Birthday. Happy Birthday, Mister Harley! For every card that Mister Harley receives, Jenn will donate $1 to her local SPCA. How could I resist making a card for a kitty, and helping out a charity in the process?! Since I have 3 cats, I have made 3 cards, one from each of my kitties! This card is from Snowie!
- Stamps: Cat (Lost Coast Designs - Party Hat Cats), sentiment (C. C. Designs Meoples Meowy), background (Heidi Swapp Chevron)
- Ink: Stamping (Versafine Onyx Black, Versamark, Stampin' Up Going Grey), Distress Oxides (Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers), Distress Ink (Hickory Smoke)
- Dies: Wonky stitched tag and chevron strip
- Other: Metallic Silver Acrylic Paint (Dollarama), embossing folder (Darice Pawprint Background), Ranger white embossing powder, tiny heart punch, Glossy Accents, sparkly flowers from my stash
Here's how I made my card:
- Using a leftover scrap of Distress Oxide ink-smooshed background, I stamped the kitty, fussy-cut, and applied Glossy Accents over the glass.
- I stamped the chevron background in grey on pale blue cardstock, die-cut into a tag shape, sponged around the edges with Distress Ink, and then adhered the stamped kitty with foam tape. I heat-embossed the sentiment in white, fussy-cut, and adhered to the tag.
- For the background, I applied silver acrylic paint in a vertical strip on navy cardstock and when dry, embossed with pawprint background.
- Lastly I adhered the tag with foam tape, adhered the chevron strips, mounted on a white card base and then embellished with some sparkly flowers and a punched heart on kitty's hat.
