Cat Punch was begging to make another card. And, he thought it would be great fun to be in a shaker card with sequins flying around. Shaker cards aren’t really that hard to make, so I accommodated him. The hard part was photographing the card, because of the reflective Window Sheet.
We first selected the foreground paper from Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. Cat likes playing in grass, so this was perfect. And, it blended beautifully with Mint Macaron, which is the card base.
Whisper White was layered on the card base, and given the same rounded corners as the “grass” print. We did this with the new Detailed Trio Punch. It gives such nice, clean corners; it’s fast becoming a favorite.
Using the largest of the Layering Ovals Dies, I cut an oval in the “grass.” Then, I cut a piece of Window Sheet to size, and taped it to the back. Next, I cut a piece of Mint Macaron to size, and Cat (Basic Black cardstock) hopped on. I boxed him in with Foam Adhesive Strips, he meowed for lots of sequins, and I adhered the two pieces (Mint Macaron and “grass”) together.
He wanted to wish someone a happy birthday, and we found the sentiment in a stamp set he stares at a lot, Best Birds. “It’s a good day” fit within the smallest, round Stitched Shapes Die, which I stamped with Basic Black ink. “Happy Birthday,” from the same set, is on the inside. I was so busy shaking the card, I forgot to photograph it. oops!
I did remember to decorate the envelope flap, though, and used the Petal Pair Embossing Folder that looks like the “grass.” Don’t you think so?
Cat was thrilled when he found out this week’s theme at Paper Players is “animals.” He couldn’t wait to post his shaker card!
Thank you for visiting Cat today. I know you made him very happy! He would love for you to get your very own Cat Punch, and make him lots of friends.
