My dear friend V recently lost her beloved cat. I was so sorry to hear this as he was such a sweet boy and I know how heartbreaking this is. Here are some photos of him during happier times.

And here are some photos of the card…

sorry for the loss of your card

I used the Modern Cats stamp set from Altenew.  I coloured the cat in the same colours as my friend’s dear cat. I cut a window on the front of the card with a circle die and then a frame in black with a larger circle die and attached it to the front of the card.

I decided to add a black background behind the cat and then I used the Under the Cherry Blossom stamp set to stamp these branches on the front.

The sentiment and ball of yarn stamps are also from Modern Cats.
