BOO!

Hello, friends! It’s Day 4 of the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop and I’ve stopped in this morning to share another card with you! If you’re a fellow cat lover, be sure to come on over and play – Janis has worked hard getting tons of sponsors so that means there are tons of prizes to be won!

I created a swing easel card featuring a Tim Holtz Crazy Cat with accessories in all the bright Halloween colors of black, purple, green, yellow and orange! SO fun! My inspiration for this card came from a recent Splitcoast Stampers newsletter HERE. Those who know me – even moderately well – know that I love me some fun folds and I’m always looking for new ones to try!

I’m in love with the Tim Holtz Crazy Cats stamps and dies right now, so I pulled them back out along with the coordinating Crazy Things stamps and dies, and stamped, colored and die cut my cat along with his hat, broom and pumpkin. I cut six of the BOO! die cuts and layered them for dimension, to keep the easel portion of the card open, and added an orange gemstone to the exclamation point. ;)

Here are a couple close-ups. I stamped a simple sentiment on the back of the cat panel and left a spot to sign the card. I included a side shot of the card below so you can see the cool construction. ;)


And here’s one more look… this card folds flat for mailing. How cool is that?!
