C is for Cat

I created this card for very good friends of mine who recently lost their cat, who was absolutely adorable. I was glad when Stampin' Up! released the C is for Cat stamp set because it is perfect for a cat sympathy card with the "so sorry for the loss of your little friend" stamp and I was thrilled with the way this card came out.

I wish I would have written down the measurements before I sent the card, but I have a solution! Start with a piece of Glossy White cardstock a little bit larger than the tree/grass stamp from Nature's Silhouettes. Then sponge the top half with Baja Breeze ink and the bottom half with Wild Wasabi ink. Then stamp the tree/grass stamp using Stazon Jet Black ink, then stamp the cat and workd Stazon Jet Black ink. Now you can trim down the cardstock around the stamped images. I added a Basic Rhinestone jewel on the cat's collar. I mounted this on Whisper White cardstock, then Basic Black cardstock, then mounted on the card using Dimensionals. For the bottom of the card, I used Baja Breeze and I stamped the paws walking across the card using Baja Breeze ink. I ran it through the Big Shot using the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. You can't tell in the picture, but I sprayed some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on the focal point.
