Oh hello again!
It’s time to make another Spring birthday card, this time for my lovely friend, who just happens to be a cat person, so I really enjoyed making this one.
I’ve been playing around with the Altenew Bold Alphabet capital letter dies so I decided to use this big foam Happy for the front of the card.
I did think about painting it but then decided to cut it a second time from this Distress Oxide background and glue it on top. I outlined each letter in black to make it stand out more.
I had already stamped, coloured and cut out a lot of cats etc from this stamp set and used them in other cards but I had some leftover and decided I wanted to use them here, both on the outside and the inside, along with another Distress Oxide background.
The cat theme continued on the back of the card and on both sides of the envelope. The chair and books are from Hello Stampurr by Waffle Flower and the sentiments and cat paws and cat head are from Love You Furever by MFT and Pawfect by Kaisercraft.
And here is the finished card…
All the elements have been highlighted with nuvo drops and wink of stella.
