Hi friends! I’ve popped in to share another sample I created for Prickley Pear Stamps! I’m having the best time playing with these amazing stamps and dies, and I have several samples to share in between the Hochanda samples. This is an adorable center panel easel card featuring the Build A Cat 2 clear stamp set and the coordinating Build A Cat die set. We are ‘crazy cat people’ so any opportunity I get to create a cat card, especially a Christmas cat card, I’m on it!
I’ve had the instructions for this center panel easel card in my tutorial folder for quite some time and I’ve made a few of them over the years. I paired plaid and glitter papers from a fun 6×6 Christmas paper pad with some matching green cardstock. I colored the kitty’s bows green to match the card and I used a rather lonely border die in my stash that doesn’t get much use to create the glittery rick-rack die cuts on the sides, and a couple circle punches for the stamped sentiment.
Here’s an angled view so you can see the simple but cool construction. ;)
And one more peek… lying flat and ready to stuff into an envelope. Loving how this turned out!
