If you and your sweetie are cat lovers, then you will adore this cute card!
When we saw this adorable card, we were thinking it was the perfect example of cat Valentine cards to make at home for your favorite feline fans. While we missed seeing it for this year’s Valentine’s Day, we are absolutely book marking this for next year! We love the little pun, the sweet kitties and that beautiful soft background. This is from Jamie and of course, like all the lovely people on our Design Team, she is sharing her steps so you can make this, too!
Jamie started by cutting pieces of white and pink card stock with dies from our new Mini Slimline Nested with Stitch Die set. She then stenciled the white die-cut panel with our Plaid Texture Stencil – a two-part stencil – with Blush Color Fuse Ink from Set #5 and Citrus Color Fuse Ink from Set #2. When she was all done with her beautiful stenciling, she adhered that piece to a piece of white card stock cut to just a whisker larger than the die cut. That got layered onto her pink die cut piece and then the whole assembly was added to her card base.
Now Jamie stamped the cards from our new For Each Other Set on watercolor paper with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. Remember, using clear embossing powder when you are planning to use a water based medium to color help contain the colors and prevents any bleeding. When she had them all colored in, Jamie cut her furry friends out with our coordinating die.
While she had her die cutting machine out she used our Grass #2 Die Cut to cut some details from green card stock. She tucked a few pieces behind each cute kitty, adhering with liquid glue.
She then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versamark onto matching pink card stock, heat embossed with white powder and trimmed to a neat rectangle. She layered this onto a piece of black card stock, cut to give a very thin border for some accent.
Now she put her card together. She adhered her greeting in the center with adhesive tape and added her kitties with some dimensional adhesive for a little depth and detail. And finally, for that little touch something extra, she added a few tiny rhinestones onto the sentiment and some pink hearts randomly on her card.
Just adorable! And so purrfect for friends, a sweetheart, even a small one like a grandchild!
Now even though this is the purrfect idea for cat Valentine cards to make at home, after looking at the making, we see that this card can be used any time to send sweet little notes of warm and fuzzy greetings to those you care for.
