A Card with the Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit
by Janet Katz
Here is my second Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit card this month. I knew I wanted to use the walking cat die that comes in the kit and had the idea to use it on the top third of the card. I also liked the sitting cat die and how they would face each other if I used them together. I wanted to incorporate red and black as they are my recipient's alma mater school colors. I die cut the two cats from heavy white cardstock and colored them with a variety of alcohol ink markers to give them the appropriate cat stripes. I used a strip of black ultra-fine glitter paper and one portion of the largest frame made by the Double Scalloped Stitched Frame die cut from red cardstock as the trim. I put this trim at the top of a piece of red and white gingham paper that I cut to cover the remaining 2/3 of the card base.
I adhered the cats with foam adhesive and realized I had some space left over between the two, but not enough for another cat. The largest of two-hearts die that is conveniently included with the Kitty Kit fit perfectly in this spot, and cutting it from red cardstock was just the answer I was looking for.
Next, I used the stamps from the Kitty Kit to heat emboss You're Purrfect in white onto black cardstock. I adhered this just below my trim. Finally, I wanted a "stream" of pretty red and white confetti to trail down from the sentiment. I used red sequins, the smaller hearts from the included two-hearts die, and other white, silver and iridescent sequins from my stash to create this.
I had a lot of fun making this card. Do you make cards with animals in them?
Oh how adorable. Your cats are so cute.
Hi Janet, These kitties are adorable, as is your card, thank you, I love it !!
