Crazy Birthday Cat

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!

These images are perfect for masculine cards - any card really but they certainly make a great masculine card!

I have also created my own patterned papers using leftover prices of papers - you know those ones that you don't want to part with - I have so many of them....The patterned paper has been cut into squares and layered onto recycled cardboard using Adhesive Sheets 4 x6, cut/embossed using a Spellbinders Matting Die and lightly sanded.  Each of the squares has been paper pierced by hand. The card front has been popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut white card base using using  Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The cat has been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black,coloured using Chameleon Pens and cut out using the co-ordinating die. The Party Hat and Balloons are from the Accessories set and have also been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black,coloured using Chameleon Penand cut out using the co-ordinating die.  These have been popped up onto a small white textured panel using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L  3D Foam Squares.  The computer generated sentiment has been adhered across the balloon strings.
