A Tisket, A Tasket, a bunch of kitties in a basket!

To be remembered on one's birthday is a thrill to know others are saying
With cakes, cards, and good wishes,Thanks for being born into our lives!
~Terri Guillemets, "Keepsake," 2013

Good morning,
Today I am sharing a Birthday card I made for my niece who recently celebrated.

She loves cats but since she lives with us and we just sent our 17ish year old kitty over the Rainbow we are just not ready for another feline at this point in time. Someday, just not right now.

So, for now, I put this cute card together using a cat stamp of mine I know she loves and the color pick. Which she also loves!

I used ProMarkers to shadow the basket pieces after I cut it out but it really does not show up very well. Thinking I should have used a darker brown, but by the time I figured out the ink I used was too light I’d already put it together so I just left it.

I stamped the kitty on 3 different color scrap pieces and fussy cut leaving some length for layering.

I did some die cutting of the flowers using a scrap of the pink matting cardstock. Used a darker pink ProMarker and blender pen to create the centers. Once done, I added the rhinestones to the centers.

Supplies for 5 x 7 card
  • Banner punch from Stampin Up!
  • Cardstock from Pen+gear (Base), Americna crafts and my scrap box
  • Cat stamp from Stampabilities
  • Design paper from Scrapbook Wizard
  • Flowers & border die (Flower field) from Spellbinders
  • Memento Ink
  • Pen white ink from Dr. Martins
  • ProMarkers
  • Rhinestones from my stash
  • Sentiment from Whimsy Stamps (Kitten Balloons)
  • Woven basket die from Gina Marie Designs

NOTE: Found that all my links were disabled, They should all be working now
