Have a Purrrfect Birthday

January 30, 2017

My mother-in-law and her twin have a birthday coming up soon. My son wanted to make a card for each one of them.

This is the card for his great aunt. She has two cars and he wanted to include the cats on her card.



Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  We started by making our card base from some heavy weight water color paper. On an extra scrap I stamped the two cats. I used a brown and grey ink to match the colors of the real cats.

We stamped a custom sentiment on a strip of black paper using Versa Mark ink and silver embossing powder.

I die cut to scalloped circles from some green patterned paper. I die cut a window in one of the circles.  I created the shaker pocket with the Fuse tool and some page protectors. Using strong adhesive, I sandwiched the shaker pocket between the two green circles and adhered it to my card base.

I layered the cats and sentiments over the shaker pocket and the card was done.
