Hi friends! Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a fabulous week and you have something fun planned this weekend! Today is Day 5 of the 2021 Cat Lovers Hop and I have one last project to share! This has been a totally FUN week and I’m so glad I participated again this year! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! The Hop is going on until tomorrow, the 30th, but there will be some extra days left open for participants to finish posting their projects and to finish commenting. Be sure to come over and join us! A huge shout-out to Janis for organizing another successful Cat Lovers Hop – I can’t wait until next year’s, lol! And to all of those who participated this year, good luck in all the prize draws!
I created an adorable cat and dog friendship mini slimline card. I am loving clean and simple more and more every day. I used to be so intimidated by CAS and used tons of layers, but no more! And I’m not sure what has overcome me but I just can’t get enough of the mini slims! They are so stinkin’ cute and so fun to create! I’m loving the 3-1/2″ x 6″ size because they are legal to mail at the post office whereas the 3″ x 6″ size is not. And I used my new Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set to cut the layers for this one! Makes these mini slimlines so easy to create! ;)
I cut a mini slimline card base from CutCardStock Basis White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis Light Brown cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set and a strip of patterned paper from the Crafter’s Companion Just For Men Urban Collection for the bottom of the panel. I added narrow light brown and white strips to the top of the patterned paper panel for a little interest. I stamped a sentiment from the Prickley Pear Stamps Blobby Flowers stamp set in the lower right corner in brown ink. Using the Impression Obsession Mini Critters die set, I die cut the cat and dog from white cardstock and colored them with alcohol markers, and added them to the card front. The finishing touch was adding several brown enamel dots.
I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis White cardstock along with a slightly larger panel from CutCardStock Basis Light Brown cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set. I embellished the white panel with a strip of patterned paper from the Crafter’s Companion Just For Men Urban Collection that I used on the front and a narrow strip of the light brown cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the Prickley Pear Stamps Blobby Flowers 2 stamp set in brown ink, and layered the panels together.
And one more peek… this card turned out so cute! I love the cat and dog friendship theme, lol! They should be friends! ;)
