The fascination between cats and boxes is no joke! I love these images for a congratulations card like this but with the right colors you could easily make it a birthday or Christmas card too.
I started by stamping and coloring two images from the Newton Loves Boxes set (all of the kitties are colored with W0-W10 markers and the boxes were colored with E51-E55 markers). I then cut them out with the coordinating dies.
To create the background, I started by blending clouds using the Clouds Stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I blended Twisted Citron and just a touch of Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink to create the ground. I just let them gently blend together since I knew the stamped images would cover most of the transition.
I die cut the blended piece using the stitched rectangle from the Frames & Flags die set. My original plan was to use the entire rectangle but I thought about trying to cut the top using the cloud die from the Sky Borders die set. I was really happy with the little extra interest it gave the background piece!
I attached the background and larger kitty (with two boxes) using foam adhesive. I used an action wobbler to attach the kitty “hiding” in the box for a some extra fun!
Finally I tucked the sentiment between the images and this one is ready to go!
And to demonstrate the truth of “if I fits, I sits”, here is our kitty, Ginger:
I’m pretty sure she thinks that Finn can’t see her in that first picture! And it’s a little hard to see in the second picture but Ginger is a polydactyl cat (meaning she has “thumbs”)! And she has the softest, silkiest fur of any cat I’ve ever known.
Thanks for stopping by!
