A Lovable Cat Card

 Hello, this is Ana coming to you once more with a card that was created to send Valentine's Day good wishes to a far away friend. They recently moved to Georgia, and due to the holidays, we haven't been able to talk much. I thought this would be a perfect card for them. This card is also great for someone whom you haven't spoken to in a while. Using this loveable cat stamp from Mama Kat with her Kittens Rubber Stamp by Rick St Dennis and a fun pun, makes a perfect Valentine's Day card.

Supply list:


Start by cutting a piece of watercolor paper to fit the size of your card base. Make sure it is about 1/2" smaller all around from your card size so that you can mount on two other layers and they will all can be seen. In other words cut:
  • First card base (red): size of your card, 
  • Second card base (white): 1/4" smaller than your card, 
  • Third card base (watercolor paper): 1/2" smaller than your card.

Adhere the two first layers (red and white) on to your card base. The card is ready to be worked on.
Next, Stamp the Mama Kat on to the watercolor paper and color image. 
Watercolor markers were used in this image.

After you have colored your image, mask it with masking fluid so that you can work on the background. 

Tip: If you don't have masking fluid, you can stamp the image on a separate piece of paper and fussy cut it out to then glue on to your background.  
For the background use whatever media you have on hand. Watercolor markers were used for this background.
Once you have applied the watercolor, with a wet brush go over streaks of color to disperse the ink on your paper and give it the blotchy look.
With an eraser, remove the masking fluid.
Now that you have the main image for your card, go ahead and mount it on top of your white card base.
By adding a strip of patterned paper to the left hand side of the card, a different element is added to decorate the card.
Use a banner or tag to add your sentiment. You can print it out to then cut it out. Using puns always adds a fun element to cards.

 The little kitten in the stamp makes a perfect paw to hold a string. Use your crafters knife to make a small slit above and under the kittens paw. Insert the string and glue the heart balloon to the end of it.

Finish the card by adding sequin in different spots of the card just to give it some additional interest.

Now that your card is finished... go ahead and send it to someone you love to share a wonderful smile.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you create and be happy - Ana
