Spooky Cat, Not Spooky at All!


This is another card we did in my Holiday Card Class this month. I love the cat punch, and check out the new Black Crochet Trim. This is a pretty easy card to put together. We have a Black card base, with a 2 1/2″ piece of the Spooky Night Designer Paper, (don’t forget to add your Vintage Crochet Trim) on the left and a 1 3/4″ piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock that was embossed with the Oh My Stars Embossing folder on the right side. I had them overlap just a bit. I adhered the Pumpkin Pie piece first and then the Designer Paper over that, keeping a border all the way around.

The Cat was punched from the Designer Paper with the cats on it. I love that Stampin’ Up! coordinates the punches with the paper. The paper with the pumpkins in this pack coordinates with the Pick a Pumpkin Framelits. too. I added the Cat with Dimensionals onto a Stitched Circle that has the Scallops in Black, (Layering Circles). That piece also has Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie and layered it on top of the cat, added a couple Black Rhinestones and a Linen Thread Bow (used a Glue Dot to attach the bow).  Finished off the card with 3 additional Black Rhinestones. Now don’t forget to decorate the inside, especially when you have a dark card base. I used the the biggest Framelit from the Lots of Labels set. Stamped Trick or Treat in Pumpkin Pie and the hat in Black. Still leaves plenty of room to right a message and sign.
