Hello Crafty Friends!

Here’s how I made this card:

1. Cut a piece of cat-themed double sided cardstock to 7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Fold in half then unfold and die cut with the Rectangle Pull Card die, lining up the tabs in the center fold. Fold on the score lines to create the card base.

2. Die cut the additional pieces – Whiskers the Cat, fish bones, mice, MEOW letters and one white and one patterned decorator rectangle. Die cut a large and small heart from the Heart Pivot Card from red cardstock with transparent double-sided adhesive adhered to it. Die cut the collar, lips and bow from the same red cardstock. Glitter with True Red Microfine Glitter. Die cut the whiskers and shadow layer from white cardstock covered with transparent double-sided adhesive and then glitter with Chocolate Silk Microfine Glitter. Die cut two Spinners from both the red and white cardstock. (The Spinner die makes the hearts pop up).

3. Print the sentiment on white cardstock and die cut with the rectangle decorator die. Ink edges of card base, both rectangle decorator pieces and the detail layer of Whiskers the Cat with brown ink.

4. Assemble Whiskers. Add inked detail layer to glittered shadow layer. Add eyes, nose, glittered whiskers, bow and collar with a red glitter dot in the center of Whisker’s collar tag. Adhere to decorator rectangle on front on foam adhesive. Add fish bones, mice and red glitter border peel-offs. Here is a close up for placement:

6. Adhere sentiment rectangle to inside flap. Add mice and glittered lips.

7. Add Spinner toward the top of the fold.  Add glittered hearts to the Spinner. Cut one fishbone in half and trim off ribs. Place on glittered hearts to simulate an arrow going through both hearts. Adhere smaller glittered heart to inside of card with an additional fishbone to complete.
