My neighbor asked me to create a cat themed birthday card for her friend. I found inspiration from:
The Paper craft crew with a tic-tac -toe challenge. I chose straight across with birthday theme, watercolor background, and to make it masculine.
Daisy Chain: is requesting no patterned paper.
and Cheerful Sketches for there design.
I used watercolor paper and distress ink on a craft mat to create the background for my cat. I chose shiny gold paper to die cut a circle, stamp my sentiment and affix my kitty. after trying several colors, I went with black strips and black card base to give it a more masculine look.
Because I personally don’t know the recipient, I made a second more snarky looking cat in case she wants to go that route with her greeting. This die cut cat can be found on Ebay HERE. I don’t own( nor do I really want) an electronic die cut machine, so I support fellow artists by buying their creations. I added the hat and the word “Party” that I die cut in white and colored in with markers. I think he’s fitting for our current social distancing -no parties allowed- kind of birthday!
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
