Cat Thank You

Today's card is a quick thank you card for one of the many cat lovers in my life - made using one of my card kits as described in a previous post here.  The patterned card stock is from a small DCWV stack.

FOCAL: The focal was made as described in this post, using stamps from JustRite's Grand Sentiments (frame & sentiment) and Inkadinkadoo (You're Purrfect Cat).   I used clear embossing ink & white powder for the border & a dark pink ink with clear embossing powder for the image & greeting.  Focal was cut using a die from Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Nine.

FRAME:  Because my card stock came from a 4.5" x 6.5" mat stack, it was just the right size to allow for a white border around it on the front of my 5" x 7" card.  I cut it into a frame by cutting the center out, using the same die used for the focal.  I popped the frame on the card using dimensional tape and my card front was finished.

INSIDE:  I didn't take a picture of the inside, but I used the piece that was left over from cutting the frame (inside piece) and cut another frame using a smaller die from the same set to cut the inside of that piece out - perfect for framing my inside message.
