It’s time for someone to take charge and change the “myth” and set things straight! That was what the cat was thinking and decided to scratch out the dog in man’s best friend and replace it with the right word! Celebrate cats with your cat-loving friends by making this high contrast purrrfect card. Black and red stamping in contrast with the white card and gray distressed background enhance the bold dimensional design. Add a cute kitty stamp front and center with a little ball of string for her to bat around as adorable final touches.
Time: 1 hour
Cut a 4 x 2 ½ piece of watercolor paper and stamp the words “DOG man’s best friend” with the VersaFine Clair Nocturne inkpad.
Use a craft knife to scratch the word “DOG” out making it look like a kitty paw might have done it.
Stamp the word “CAT” with VersaFine Clair in Tulip red.
Stamp the cat design with the same color on a scrap piece of watercolor paper and cut around the shape.
On a 3 x 1 ¼ pice of watercolor paper stamp the word “Purrrfect” using both colors of VersaFine Clair already used.
Die cut hearts frames from watercolor paper and full hearts from tracing paper.
Distress a 4 x 6 in. white cardstock with Memento in London fog and a sponge dauber. Then use the stencil and the same dauber to create a darker overlay pattern.
Add Tear It! Tape to the back of your inked cardstock, remove the backing and adhere to your card base.
Continue to add the rest of the stamped and die cut pieces using On Point Glue.
Cut a 5-6 in. long piece of the red jute cord. Form a little ball and set on the card with On Point Glue.
