Do you love animals? For most of my life I’ve been surrounded by different pets. I’ve had dogs and cats and lots of more interesting things my children have brought home for some TLC… baby bunnies and birds, toads and turtles. My card today features the Purrfect Cats die cut.
I love the intricate layered dies from Birch Press Design but I confess that I am always hesitant to cover them up. The backgrounds are so beautiful I always think they should take center stage. Sometimes I worry that if I add die cuts and embellishments that my card will look too busy or cluttered.
I started my card with a distress ink background in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick and Wilted Violet. The panel was splattered with water and white ink before I topped it with a Sevilla Layer A die cut. The Purrfect Cats die cut works well with the busy background because it is a large solid die cut in contrast with the detailed colorful background.
I triple cut the cat and glued the die cuts together to make one thick die cut. I embellished the cat with some rhinestones, a twine bow and a bitty die cut tag. The background is embellished with gold sequins from the Not So Heavy Metal tin from the store.
The sentiment is from the Love and Miss You stamp set. The coordinating die set cuts the large word sentiments from the stamp set.
I hope you have a great day with time to create!
