It’s raining CATS and DOGS!

Happy Saturday, everyone! I hope you had a great week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun cat and dog card inspired by our rescued feline fur babies. My husband and I are ‘crazy cat people’ and we have ten, and all but one are rescued. We love dogs too (in fact, we love ALL kinds of animals) but have found that cats tend to be easier if we decide to take a weekend trip. If you’re interested, you can read all about our fur babies HERE.

I created a top fold card base and a slightly smaller background panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I created a computer-generated sentiment which I printed on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and adhered across the top of the panel, then put a strip of Weather Washi Tape just beneath it. Then the fun began adding Cat Quicklet Eyelets and Dog Quicklet Eyelets in a ‘raining-down’ fashion. I’ve never used quicklets before and these were so easy to set with a ballpoint pen! I adhered a piece of light blue cardstock to the card base, then adhered a piece of light blue craft foam to the back of the panel, and adhered the panel to the card base.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of the washi tape and the light blue cardstock used on the front, stamped the sentiment in black ink, and layered the panel on the light blue cardstock.

And one more peek… such a fun card! LOVE these cat and dog quicklets!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. How fun are those eyelets, and I love that you’ve continued the theme on the inside. A little more open space would be preferred to fulfil the CAS challenge guidelines but I love how cute this design is. Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge, Anita x
