Today is my friend Ann Will's birthday and so I needed to make a super special card for her.
At first I was making her the one from yesterday and then my daughter said "but it doesn't have cats on it or bling!" which is exactly what a card for Ann needs to have! lol
SO I put my thinking had on and this is what I came up with -
The punch art cat is inspired by Angela Purdie who has some lovely punch art animals on her site. I decided to make it onto a book mark so it makes the card useful!
The card is a tri-folded zig-zag which is SUPER easy to do - just fold a piece of card into three then open up and mark the lower side on the front left edge where you want the lowest part to be and then mark on the right side where you want the card to end and then just cut straight between the two! You end up with perfectly even Zig Zags. I used the lovely new embossing folder from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini - lattice which just lovely for adding texture.
The card base is Early Espresso, the next layer is craft and the sentiment is stamped on Very Vanilla. Just behind that I put a piece of Marina Mist (my new favourite blue!!) which is the same colour I used for the eyes of the cat, and some of the words on the sentiment. I used my markers to colour directly on to the stamp to get the words in different colours - I think it looks very effective.
On the inside I put a bit of Marina Mist taffeta ribbon just to add a touch of colour.
I hope Ann likes it - it covered the 'cats and bling' requirements so should be good! lol
Hope you have an ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS birthday today Ann, get spoilt rotten as you deserve it!
