cat hair note card

Hi everyone! Lots of posts to see today on my blog – this always happens on the first day of the month! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge is live over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog this morning and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #57 – April Anything Goes! I downloaded a cool app on my phone several months ago and transformed a photo of our guy, Loki, into a watercolor image. I’ve had this awesome pic in my photos waiting to do something with it, so I worked up a fun note card!

LOL, did the title of this post make you giggle?! Anybody who owns cats knows all about cat hair! This sentiment just cracked me up because it’s so true! I created my go-to A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I printed the image on glossy photo paper and cut it with a stitched square die. I used the JustRite Stitched A2 Banners and Rectangles die set to create the background, stamped the sentiment in black ink at the bottom and added a few tiny black gemstones.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a single strip of green cardstock, stamped the paw prints in the lower left corner, and layered the panel on black cardstock. Since it’s a note card, I left plenty of room to write a custom message.

And another peek… totally loving how this turned out! Super simple design that could easily be mass produced for a fun gift set!

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
