Card #10 – “Pawesome” card
I started by assembling all my supplies.
Today’s card is dedicated to all my friends and dear readers who own cats. This stamp is part the the same set that I used on Card #6 – Ruff Day? I was obviously attracted to this set because of the dog, but the ball of yarn called to me as well ;-).
I used white cardstock (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″) for my base, orange cardstock (5″ X 3 3/4″) for the frame and patterned cardstock (4 3/4″ X 3 1/2″) for the design.
I started by die cutting the patterned cardstock using a rectangular stitched die. I also die cut the sentiment “Pawesome” out of orange cardstock. I wanted to add some dimension and glamor to the sentiment so I went over the letters with Glossy Accents, a clear, dimensional adhesive and glitter.
I found some scrap white cardstock and stamped, in black ink, the cat and the ball of yarn. I colored the images, cut them out and went around the edges with a black marker to give the pieces a finished look. I then glued the sentiment and stamped the ball of yarn on the patterned cardstock. I stamped the ball of yarn because I cut off the string after I colored the yarn image.
I used my tape runner to adhere the frame to the orange cardstock. I then glued the patterned cardstock inside the frame.
I finished the card by attaching the front to the white cardstock base and adding a few sequins.
Here is the finished card.
