SB Purrr-fect Birthday

Hello friends - thanks so much for dropping in!  and created a card using the adorable Spellbinders Christmas Kitten Holiday 3D Shading Stamp.  Don't let the name limit you - this gorgeous kitten could be used for many occasions.

The image has been stamped using Imagine Versafine Ink in Vintage Sepia and lightly coloured the ribbon and decorations using Chameleon Pens.

The card front has been cut/embossed using the black card stock and the Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace A2 Filigree Delight Card Creator Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine. This has been glued to a slightly larger white card base. The Christmas Kitten has been cut/embossed using the Oval Die from the  A2 Filigree Delight and adhered to the centre of the Filigree die. A thin strip of pleated patterned paper has been adhered below the kitten and the sentiment adhered onto it using strong tape.

A double white Seam Binding Bow has been adhered below the image and a Mulberry Paper flower glued to the knot and Want2Scrap Swirls Finesse - LeCreme has been trimmed and added to each side of the bow. A small pink paper flower has been glued to the knot of the bow.
