Funny that I signed up for an All About Pet Hop when I have no pets. I am allergic to cats and most dogs and I run an in-home daycare. I have dog-nephews and even a horse-neice and horse-nephew, but I already scrapped and posted the pictures I had..... I needed to make a thank you card for a friend who is a cat lover and I thought that would be perfect for this hop!
I am trying to use my expensive dust collector (aka Imagine) so I found this cat from the Best Friends cartridge. I took the cat paper and filled in the scallop shape to create a mat so I could add dimension. I also cut out some other images (as I typically do when I use my Imagine) so I can fill up the paper and create less waste.
Here are my images printed and cut out.
I inked the edges of the layers with Vintage ink from Tim Holtz. I adhered the layers together along with a strip of blue paper behind the mat. I used stickles to glitter it up ~ my friend Linda is a self-proclaimed glitter girl!!
I tucked this tag inside the card.
I added a couple of gems to each side and to her collar. I am including my extra cat cuts in the card for her to use if she wishes.
Here is my blog candy today ~ a mini album that would make a great pet brag book and some kitty and doggie buttons. Please leave a comment and share a pet story.
We had a big black cat named Fraidy when I was a kid (before my allergies kicked in) . He was afraid of everything! He would sit at the window and watch the birds fly over the house. We lived in a ranch house and Fraidy would perch on the desk in my parent's room and then dart down the hallway into the family room and jump on the back of the couch and watch out the front window. One day, he ran a bit too fast and bonked his head on the window (poor kitty)!
Your next stop in the hop is GILL!
