Happy Cat

Hello Everyone! I have a calico kitty cat shaped card to share today. I found the cat on Cricut's Meow Cartridge and welded two of the base shapes to make a card. My trick to make shaped cards to fit in A2 sized envelope is to make a rectangle template 5.5 by 4.25 inches. Then I size my shape to fit inside the template. I cut the cat in several colors and hand cut them to layer the "calico" markings.   As you can see, this sweet calico is really enjoying her Timeless Twine in Pumpkin Orange. I just love the character Peachy Keen's Face Stamps give to my die cuts. This face is from PK-110 Here Kitty Kitty Face Assortment.

The "yarn ball" is card-stock base that I ran through my Xyron Sticker maker. I was able to coil the twine on the paper and then added extra to tangle around the kitty's body. Be sure to check out the Peachy Keen and Timeless Twine Blogs this week for more inspiration.
