Happy Friday, friends! I’m back this afternoon with my final cat project for the 2020 Cat Lovers Hop! This is Day 5 and officially the last day, but tomorrow (Day 6) has been left open for participants to finish posting projects and Sunday (Day 7) to finish commenting. I’ve had a great time this week and I’m so glad I participated again this year! A huge shout-out to Janis for organizing another amazing event! If you participated, I wish you good luck in all the prize draws!

I created a fun congrats card in bold, bright colors using a circular opening die in my stash that I’ve had for years and have used once. *sigh* I just don’t know how that happens. Maybe too much stuff?! Naw… never! ;) But wait till you see the sentiment on the inside… no truer words were ever spoken, lol!

I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base from hot pink cardstock (still in the pink mode, lol), and cut an ever-so-slightly-smaller panel from striped paper and a narrow strip of hot pink foiled paper that actually looks purple in the first two photos… but I promise it’s hot pink! I die cut a trio of circular openings through both layers and then adhered a white panel behind it. I added several die cut cats, the sentiment stamped in black ink, and a few matching gemstones to complete the front. Super simple design!

I embellished the inside panel with a leftover strip of the striped paper and a very thin strip of hot pink cardstock, stamped the sentiments and tiny paw prints in black ink, and layered the panel on hot pink cardstock for a tone-on-tone look.

And one more peek… what a great card! One cat really does lead to another! My hubby is angling to bring home a feral kitten that has been hanging around his shop. So far I have resisted… it would be number ten in our cat tribe, lol! ;)
