Hi friends! It’s Hump Day and I hope you’re having a fabulous week! It’s Day 3 of the 2022 Cat Lovers Hop and I’ve popped in this morning with fun mini slimline pet rescue card! The Hop is going on until the 29th, 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 pretty amazing prizes to give away at the end!
It’s always fun to give a card to someone who has opened their heart to give a rescue a home, regardless of the species. This one just happens to be for a cat and I’ve used the adorable Prickley Pear Stamps Slimline Hanging Plants stamp set to create a little scene with a feline who looks mighty happy to have been re-homed. ;)
I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from 80# Solar White, and rounded the bottom right corner of each. I dry embossed the layering panel using Catherine Pooler Twilight ink on the Tim Holtz Alterations Texture Fades-Bricked Embossing Folder to create the brick wall. I stamped the kitty and hanging basket in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Solar White cardstock and colored them with alcohol markers. I fussy cut the kitty and die cut the basket with the coordinating die, and set them aside. I paper pieced the stone walkway with CutCardStock Basis Gray and Shadow Gray cardstock before adhering the kitty. I stamped the sentiment from the Paper Smooches Charmed Cat 2 stamp set in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock, trimmed it and added a hand-drawn line with a Copic black 0.3 multi-liner pen.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of CutCardStock Basis Gray cardstock. I stamped the sentiment and paw print (from the Paper Smooches Charmed Cat 2 stamp set) in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink and layered the panel on Basis Gray cardstock.
