Purr-fect Friend | My Favorite Things Stamps

Hello there, well today I'm back again with second card to share, with me being a guess designer on My Mum's Craft Shop blog. Anyone that knows me well, knows I adore kitty cats and can spend hours and hours looking a cute cat videos on YouTube and Instagram, sad you may say? but I just love cats and their individual characters and just can't can enough of them. So with that in mind, I just had to make card with cats on.

First I cut the A2 stitched panel from Neenah card using the silhouette cameo, next cut another stitched panel from sheet of 12 x 12 pattern paper that was from The Works which  is now sadly discontinued. Cut across the middle of the pattern paper with  a guillotine, adhered the pattern panel to the Neenah panel using double sided tape. Stamped You're' A Purrfect Friend on strip of lilac card from the MFT Cat-itude stamps, using versa fine onyx black ink and my DIY stamp tool. Adhere the strip just slightly above the middle of the card.

Next I stamped the cats on sketch paper and scan this using the direct scan function on the Silhouette, (This is direct scan and does NOT save the scanned image the computer and hence does NOT infringe any copyright as your not saving anything and are just using the cameo as pair of scissors to cut out the image) then trace the image with the trace tool with the silhouette software. To create die cut and then stamp the cat images and food bowl from the MFT Cat - itude stamp set using versa fine onyx black ink pad and of course my trusted DIY stamp tool..Definitely a must. Coloured in using WHSmith coloured pencils. Adhere the cat to the back with double sided tape and then other cat and food bowl with double sided foam tape. Adhered the panel to A2 US card blank using double sided foam tape. Added a few clear sequins using micro glue dots to adhered them.
