Hey Everyone! It’s time for this weeks edition of the What to Make When You Hibernate Blog Hop! And today, we’re sharing all things silly!
For this project, I pulled out my Cattitude set from The Rabbit Hole Designs, and knew that the sentiment “One cat short of crazy” was exactly the silly sentiment I was looking for. I also colored up the kitty that was lying on their back sleeping, figuring they would be the perfect addition to this card.
For my cat, I colored them up with the following simple Copic Marker color palette
- Body: R00, W1, W2, W4, W5
- Stomach: W0, W1
For my background, I wanted to do something simple and fun with, so I grabbed my Mandala Stencil from Sweet Sentiment. Now, I got this as part of my January Coloring Class, but recently Jammie posted the stencil as a standalone item on her store for purchase!
I cut a 4.125″ x 5.375″ panel and placed my stencil. I ink blended the background in the following Distress Oxide Inks (from top to bottom): Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Carved Pumpkin & Mustard Seed.
I then splattered my finished stencil panel with Fun Stamper’s Journey Sparkle Silk. Once dry, I mounted it to an A2-sized black cardstock panel.
I took a scrap black cardstock strip and heat embossed my sentiment in Alabaster Embossing Powder by Brutus Monroe. I adhered my kitty with my Thermoweb Tape Runner XL, cut my strip to size, and mounted it with foam tape.
I adhered my card to an A2-sized card base and paired it with a lined A2 Royal Blue Envelope from Paper Source. And that’s how I made my card!
