Cat couldn’t let Valentine’s Day go by without getting in on the action. She wants to be included on this day of celebrating love by giving a baby her very first Valentine. She feels there are girl babies all over the place (daughters, granddaughters, friend’s daughters) who need to see her lovely, pink, heart, fur (Love Blossoms Designer paper). She would happily change to blue for boy babies.
Cat (Cat Punch) likes playing outside, and chose to sit against a fence (Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.) It was made even more realistic by embossing with the Pinewood Planks folder.
She thought she was quite clever, and contemporary, to say, “I heart U.”
The “I” and the “U” are from the Large Letters Die set. They are colored with Stampin’ Blends in Light Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake on Watercolor Paper.
I must tell you about the heart. I think the striped heart in the Heart Happiness set in the Occasions catalog is fabulous, and I’ve regretted not ordering it. But, we can’t get everything, right? I have the die in that shape from the Lots to Love Box Dies set, and the Simple Stripes embossing folder, so I made my own version. I could even color it, but Cat wanted it white for her project.
I triple layered Cat along with her letters and heart, and glued them to the fence.
Before Cat was glued to the fence, she got tangled in some Linen Thread, so I decided to tie it around the bottom of the card.
And, the Love Blossoms DSP has a pretty Crumb Cake floral pattern, so I decided to decorate the envelope flap, which shows in the first picture.
Cat wants to show off her pretty Valentine in the Global Design Project gallery, because it’s all about “New Beginnings.” Baby’s first Valentine is the beginning of many, many cards to come.
Cat has had quite a few adventures on my past projects. Here are two favorites:
You can order your very own Cat Punch ( #144666) at my on line store today, tonight, or in the middle of the night. And, no feeding required.
