CAT-LOVER'S BIRTHDAY CARD
This birthday card (for the neighbor who usually takes care of our cats while we're away) features a Basic Grey page from their Max and Whiskers collection as the main focal point. One of the things I like about using papers from a collection is that they all coordinate in color and style. The orange background used here (from the back of the pad) matches beautifully.
After attaching a Hero Arts ribbon and adding a cat brad from the same set, I taped the background down to the card. I then added the scalloped dsp with ds tape and the scalloped ovals with dimensionals. Using a black glitter letter set, I translated "Happy Birthday" to cat language, decorated with a variety of gems and stamped a sentiment inside.
When I sign the card, I will include our cats names, too!
