|A friendly and slightly curious cat|
For the front of the card, I cut a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock to 3.75" x 5.75" and used Versamark and the Diagonal Stripe background stamp to create the diagonal lines. I adhered that piece to the front of the card and then used the second largest Layering Ovals Framelit to cut a window.

I cut a piece of Crumb Cake DSP (from the Neutrals DSP Stack) to 3.75" x 5.75" and adhered that to the next piece of the card. I refolded the card and used a pencil to lightly draw around the inside of the aperture in the front of the card. I used the pencil marks to line up the same die to cut a window in this layer.
I then used the same oval die and the largest oval die to cut two frames from Mint Macaron cardstock and glued them in place.
I cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to 3.75" x 5.75" and temporarily positioned it on the middle section while I made a very light mark through the "window" to help me line up the stamped image. I then stamped the body of the cat using Soft Suede ink (stamped off). I masked the body and stamped the tail with Soft Suede ink. I only half inked the legs because cats have shorter legs than foxes! I inked up the head with Soft Suede ink and stamped off once, then I tapped jusst the ears into Early Espresso ink and stamped the image on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. I added the face stamped in Basic Black and then punched out the head. I trimmed back to the ink line on the bottom half of the head with snips and then stuck the head to the body with a dimensional.
|I left the inside of the card fairly simple to maximise space for my loving message to my son|
The banner on the inside flap of the card uses the Birthday Banners and matching framelit and a sentiment from Feather Together. I just picked up a little Soft Suede ink with an aqua painter to add a little shadow to "ground" the cat.
