My brother-in-law has a birthday coming up and he has a cat that wandered onto his property several years ago and just stayed, apparently liking the accommodations. This cat has now become his pride and joy, so I thought I'd make him a card with a cat theme. He even added a little door so the cat can come and go as he pleases 😀
I started with a Penny Black image, coloring it with Copics and fussy-cutting it. The framework was done with HoneyBee square stitched frame dies (a gift I recently won in a generous blog prize) and I cut them from black and diagonal striped paper, staggering them slightly for a fun look. I made use of some shiny silver brads that have been lurking in my stash forever, and I used a silver sticker for the sentiment! The cardstock and matching envelope are Island Blue from Simon Says Stamp and I just LOVE this color!
I'll enter this into these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Card + Matching Envelope
Cardz 4 Guyz #280 - Add Some Metal
Seize the Birthday #223 - Faux or Real Stitching
NBUS #30 - never before used schtuff (the HoneyBee dies)
Eastern PA is due for some heavy rain, flooding, and storms throughout the day so it will be a good day to stay home and make cards.
Take care, and thanks for stopping by! Have the best possible day!
