Adventure Awaits

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! I hope you’re having a great week! I’m stoked to be back on the Printable Cuttable Creatables blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a slimline card using the super adorable Pouncing Cat and Yarn Basket SVG files from the amazing Purrr-fect Pals Cat SVG Bundle. OMGoodness, there are a whopping 29 files in this bundle and if you are a fellow cat lover, then you’re sure to find some whimsical kitties and accessories that you just can’t live without! I had birthday in mind when I created this card but it really could be used for just about any celebratory event.

I cut a 3-3/4″ x 9″ slimline card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock along with a layering panel from The Paper Studio Entirely Textures 2 paper pad which I adhered to the card base. I cut all the pieces from the Pouncing Cat and Yarn Basket SVG files (both from the Purrr-fect Pals Cat SVG Bundle) from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock and colored them with alcohol markers. This was something a little different than cutting the pieces from colored cardstock which I typically do.

I used bright alcohol marker colors for the yarn balls which created great contrast against the neutral background. I colored black spots on the kitty to resemble our guy, Loki. I stamped a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Memento Espresso Truffle ink which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock, and embellished it with leftover patterned paper used on the front and a narrow strip of GKD Charcoal Brown cardstock. I stamped another sentiment (from the same stamp set) in brown ink and layered the panel on the charcoal brown cardstock.

And one more peek… this kitty is so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it! And the yarn basket definitely adds to the cuteness factor! LOVE how this turned out!

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
