Hi friends, I have a fun project to share with you today - it's a shaped card that looks like a cat's house - yup, it's a meowy Christmas time ;-)
I started by doing all the die cutting - the white paper is regular 100 lb cardstock and the patterned paper is from DCWV Rose Quartz 12x12 pack. The rose gold metallic one is also one of the papers in there. I added some dark green from Paper Accents and white glitter paper.
I assembled the house and the cat first, but did not attach them to each other. To add a little more interest, I added poinsettias and greenery from Nov20-APG club of the month. To assemble the flowers I used a brad in the middle.
For the sentiment, I cut apart the word Christmas from one of the rubber stamps from Charming Tag sentiments (also designed by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace). I used Delicata Rose Gold ink to stamp it and cut out a banner using one of the older dies from Spellbinders.
For the word meowy, I used alphabets from Be Bold Lowercase Alphabets and Numbers set. Cutting them out several times and layering them helped me get dimension.
After the front panel was completely assembled, I cut out the base part of pet house two more times. On the back panel, I added a score line and assembled it to be a shaped card. There are two easy ways to create shaped cards with any shape. You can check out a quick tutorial here.
Also, do check out this die set. It has a cat and a dog with multiple sentiments, a food bowl, and also a cute bone die. Definitely worth it for making projects for all your pet-loving friends. Combine these with some alphabet dies and you can make projects for even more occasions that the sentiments already part of the die set. :)
For your convenience, I am sharing links to the supplies I’ve used or the ones you can use for making similar cards – click on the picture or link to go directly to the product. Wherever available, I have used affiliate links, which means when you make a purchase, I receive a small commission (at no extra cost to you) which I use to run this blog. I truly appreciate your support!
The Nov20-APG is no longer available, but I think the poinsettias and foliage from the Christmas Blooms set will work equally well, so I am linking that one for you.
That's all for today's project. I hope you like it. :-)
Big hugs! ~Varada
