Hey everybody! Well, another week has almost bitten the dust – they are passing by so fast it’s making my head spin! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to be back on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a super sweet CAS kitty card featuring the most adorable Tutti Designs Cat In Basket die paired with some pink enamel hearts and iridescent bling! Perfect for a cat lover!
I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis Natural 110# cardstock (which is perfect for an almost one-layer card) and rounded the bottom right corner. I cut the Tutti Designs Cat In Basket and a single narrow strip from CutCardStock Magenta 80# cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in pink ink, stamped it again in Versamark and applied Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. I adhered the die cut and the strip, and added two pink enamel hearts. Using the Crystal Katana Pick Up Tool, I added quite a few tiny iridescent gemstones to finish off the card front.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80# cardstock and embellished it with leftover strips of CutCardStock Magenta 80# cardstock and CutCardStock Basis Natural 110# cardstock for a tone-on-tone effect, stamped the sentiment in pink ink and layered the panel on the magenta cardstock.
And one more peek… this is so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it! What an absolutely ah-DOR-able die! Wouldn’t it be fun to die cut a bunch of these cats in a basket in different colors to create a set to give as a gift?!
