Happy Friday, friends! I’m back this afternoon with my final cat project for the 2020 Cat Lovers Hop! This is Day 5 and officially the last day, but tomorrow (Day 6) has been left open for participants to finish posting projects and Sunday (Day 7) to finish commenting. I’ve had a great time this week and I’m so glad I participated again this year! A huge shout-out to Janis for organizing another amazing event! If you participated, I wish you good luck in all the prize draws!

I created a fun congrats card in bold, bright colors using a circular opening die in my stash that I’ve had for years and have used once. *sigh* I just don’t know how that happens. Maybe too much stuff?! Naw… never! ;) But wait till you see the sentiment on the inside… no truer words were ever spoken, lol!

I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base from hot pink cardstock (still in the pink mode, lol), and cut an ever-so-slightly-smaller panel from striped paper and a narrow strip of hot pink foiled paper that actually looks purple in the first two photos… but I promise it’s hot pink! I die cut a trio of circular openings through both layers and then adhered a white panel behind it. I added several die cut cats, the sentiment stamped in black ink, and a few matching gemstones to complete the front. Super simple design!

I embellished the inside panel with a leftover strip of the striped paper and a very thin strip of hot pink cardstock, stamped the sentiments and tiny paw prints in black ink, and layered the panel on hot pink cardstock for a tone-on-tone look.

And one more peek… what a great card! One cat really does lead to another! My hubby is angling to bring home a feral kitten that has been hanging around his shop. So far I have resisted… it would be number ten in our cat tribe, lol! ;)

    Wonderful card. The sentiment is so true! I have three cats that my daughter adopted and then she moved out to her own place and and adopted another!! I do love them.

    Such a beautiful card. I’ve got those dies and I’ve never thought of cutting them in anything other than black. I really must branch out a bit, they look lovely here.

    OH!! What’s one more Kitty Leslie lol – I wish my hubby would do that, he’s the one that resists having kitties, but he’s an old softy with ours! I’m working on getting another! Your card sentiment is priceless! PURRRFECT! Yes, totally get what you mean about forgetting products tucked away, but its a great feeling when they are found and used! Gorgeous, gorgeous card! Happy hopping with Cat Lovers!

    What a bright and happy new kitten card, Leslie!! LOVE the LO and colorful stripes. The circular opening die is perfect for the kitties. I like how their tails extend beyond the cutout part. Beautiful finish on the inside and sweet sentiment!
