I want to spend all 9 lives with you.

Hey everybody! A big ol’ Happy Thursday to you! Today is Day 4 of the 2021 Cat Lovers Hop and I have another fun cat-themed project to share! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Remember, the Hop is going on until the 30th, so if you’re a fellow cat lover, come join us! There’s a lot of fun and games to join in every day, and Janis has lined up some outstanding sponsors with outstanding prizes to give away at the end!

I had THE best time creating this LOVE card that would be great for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or just because! And don’t you just love this cat?! I chose him specifically for this card which went together seamlessly! I absolutely love it when my designs turn out exactly like I envisioned them!

I cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis White 110# cardstock along with a layering panels from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock and Prima Paintables Watercolor Paper (that I chose not to paint) and adhered them together. I die cut the Eiffel Tower from CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock using the Hero Arts Paper Layering Eiffel Tower die and adhered it to the card front. I stamped the sentiment and the cat from The Project Bin Feline Good stamp set on CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock, colored the cat with alcohol markers and then cut him with the coordinating die. I trimmed the sentiment, layered it on a red cardstock scrap, and adhered the sentiment and the cat to the card front. The final touches included stamping the postmark from the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Basics stamp set, adding red jewel bling and some tiny punched red hearts to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock and embellished it with a leftover strip of the unpainted watercolor paper and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the STAMPlorations Funny Kinda Love stamp set and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more look… LOL, I was cracking up the entire time it took to put this card together! The Project Bin’s Feline Good stamp set is one of my favorites and this cat paired so well with this background and the Eiffel Tower die cut!

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
