Thinking of You Kittie

Today I needed to make a "Thinking of You" card, so of course I turned to my newly completed cats (Stampendous "Pop Up Kitties" stamps & matching dies) for my focal.  I chose to use one that I colored like a "Tuxedo cat". Here's a picture that perhaps shows the front of the card a bit better:

The striped paper is from a DCWV Mat Stack and is matted with plain black.  The bows are die cut from a glittered foam from the dollar store.  The ledge the cat is sitting on is paper from HOTP.  As you can see, the cat is holding a tag with her paws.  The tag was made with stamps from JustRite stamps ("Be Strong") and cut with the matching die ("Antique Tags One") - silver heat embossing on a white glossy cardstock colored with pink alcohol ink.

The last thing I did was to position some cat paws so they look like she's holding the tag and add the head - which is on a wobble spring.

This is a purr-fect card! tee-hee!!! (I couldn't resist!) It's wonderful to see how other crafters can use supplies from several different vendors and creatively produce a terrific gift, card, home decor, etc. creation.

Well done!
