Hello it`s Alli here today and I hope you are going to have a lovely long crafty bank holiday weekend. I`ve made this card using a topper from the cutest set of images I`ve ever seen and I`m keen to get to work making things with the rest of the set. For those of you who don`t like cats there is a set of puppies which are equally cute.
what you will need:
LC Designs Irresistible Images Cuddly Kittens
LC Designs Wavy Cats - sentiment stamp
LC Designs 6" x 6" Paper Pack Masculine Dots - pale green/blue
6" x 6" white base card
Dovecraft Cupcake Boutique paper pad - blue/green with tea cups
Nit Wit Collection Country Meadow 8" x 8" paper pad - pink gingham
Marianne Design LR0271 large flourish die
7mm yellow satin ribbon
2 x pink & 1 x yellow medium size mulberry roses
1 x yellow small size mulberry rose
small heart punch
large hole punch
scrap of white card to stamp onto
black Versa Fine ink pad
pale pink felt pen
Cut the Dovecraft printed paper to 14cm square, mat and layer onto the pink card, stick to the centre of the 6" x 6" base card.
Cut the Nit Wit pink gingham paper to 12.7cm x 6.5cm and mat and layer onto the pink card.
Secure the yellow satin ribbon to the gingham and pink card topper, remember to secure the ribbon around the back to make a neat edge.
Stick the gingham and pink topper onto the base card.
Mat and layer the Irresistible Image of the three kittens in a tea cup onto the pink card and stick the topper onto the base card.
Using the "Have a Purrfect Birthday" stamp from the Wavy Cats stamp set and the black Versa Fine ink pad stamp the sentiment onto a scrap of white card.
Cut the sentiment to size and draw around the cut edges with the pale pink felt pen.
Stick the sentiment onto the gingham paper on the base card.
Using the Marianne Designs die and the LC Designs blue/green Masculine Dots paper make 1 x die cut from the front of the paper and 1 x die cut from the back of the paper (run the second die cut through the machine without the die to flatten down the cut edges.
Chop into the die cut flourishes to make the best design on your base card and stick into place.
Stick the 3 x medium roses onto the base card.
Make a bow from the satin ribbon and stick onto the base card.
Stick the small yellow rose to the centre of the bow.
Punch out 4 x small pink hearts and colour over the top with the pale pink felt tip pen to darken the pink slightly, stick the hearts onto the base card.
Punch out 2 x large dots from the pink gingham paper using the large hole punch.
Bevel the dots and stick onto the base card.
