This furry friend loves to come and visit me while I'm at my desk, reaches up with his paws on my knee for some loving pats, so I decided to include a cat on my card today.
Here's my 'Step Card' I made for the current Butterfly Challenge
I've never made a step card before and with the instructions on the challenge blog is was quite easy and it's really cool that it folds flat to fit into an envelope.
I found some 'weatherboard' DP and cut that to fit the front of the card. Then die cut some ivy, flowers, pot plant, grass, a cat and finally my butterfly - that I managed to fill in the inserts with light blue metallic paper, also my die cut cat sponged with DI Brushed Corduroy. I used the challenge colours - sage green, salmon, sky blue and added spots to the salmon flowers with white gel pen. I attached the 'steps' to a folded square white card and used some blue and salmon DP for the background - I die cut this piece with a Crazy Running Double Stitched die and then to finish I added the stamped sentiment - which is appropriate to use for various occasions - and left the inside blank for this.
I had leftover ivy and flowers so decorated the inside of the card too.
I am also playing along with Watercooler Wednesday WWC258 - Marsha's challenge - All About Occasions.
Thanks for stopping by my blog --- have a Happy Day.
