Sakura’s Birthday Card

Hola!!

A few days ago was Sakura’s birthday, so I made a birthday card for her. I love that there are many cat themed stamp sets now and I can find any excuse to play with them 🙂

For this card I used Lawn Fawn “Meow you doin'” stamp set, that I think is fabulous! I stamped the images on Bristol papel using Versafine Onyx black ink, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. The cat is colored like Sakura 🙂 Next, I trimmed a piece of watercolor paper and blended Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, trying to achieve an ombre effect. I spritzed the watercolor panel with a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls, and I dried it with a paper towel after few seconds.

Then, I used the big die from Mama Elephant “Peek a frame” dies on black cardstock for my background panel. I randomly stamped the fishbone, the mouse, the paw print and the heart with Versamark ink and heat embossed everything using white embossing powder. I also white heat embossed the sentiment on a thin stripe of black cardstock.

Then I adhered the black and white panel to the card base. I adhered a clear thread to the upper back of the pink panel and to an action wobbler, where I also adhered the kitten image. I glued this action wobbler to the pink panel, and the panel to the background. Last, I glued the two yarn balls together sandwiching the clear thread, and the sentiment stripe. Here I have a video of the card:

I must tell you that I almost can’t share this card. I was trying to film the video when Sakura caught the yarn ball and freed  the thread. Lucky, I can put everything together 🙂

I’m entering this card into Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #4: black/white & bright

    ¡No me lo puedo creer! Mi gata Java es igualita a tu Sakura!! Bueno, está algo más gordecha y seguro que tiene muchos más años (Java tiene 17!!) pero parece una foto suya de joven 🙂
    Por cierto, la tarjeta preciosa, me encantan los colores y el embossing. Tengo muchas ganas de hacer una con un action wobbler, que con lo que me gustan las tarjetas interactivas y nunca haber hecho una… tiene delito…

      Jaja, que coincidencia! Sakura tiene sólo dos años y es un terremoto. Ojalá nos acompañe hasta los 17, como Java! Me gustaría ver una tarjeta tuya con un action wobbler, porque yo le he querido dar una vuelta de tuerca poniendo la madeja de lana con un hilo para q también se mueva, pero seguro que a ti se te ocurre algo súper guay 🙂
