Cool Cat Birthday

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  I have a change of pace to share with you today - something a little more whimsical with a masculine feel - I love these Stampers Anonymous Crazy Cats and could not resist the opportunity to use one - I have to add this is a very quick and easy card to create!

I needed a masculine birthday card and used embossed card stock that was lying on my desk for my card front.  It has been sponged using Imagine Inks and some of the embossing outlined using a White Gel Pen - it definitely made the embossing stand out.  This has been popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut card base using  Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The cat has been coloured using Chameleon Pens...

...and popped up onto a Spellbinders Shapeabilities Vintage Pierced Banners Etched Dies Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by Becca Feeken using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  A computer generated sentiment has been popped up into the centre of the banner also using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.
