Two weeks ago Jules challenged the Prettie Girls to do Emma's challenge - make a card with your favorite animal on it. Hmmmm... I wonder what my favorite critter is? Hee hee... I'll give you one guess! LOL!
The details: I sketched a cat face on Creamy Caramel cardstock and cut out. I alos cut out ear insides (not sure what you call those) and a nose out of Pink Pirouette cardstock. I used a brayer and brayered some Liquid Applique over them and heat set - adds a fun velvetty texture. :) I aponged the edges of the pink pieces and the cat face with Close to Cocoa Classic ink. I sewed a couple of buttons to the face with hemp twine. I penciled in a mouth and then paper pierced along the lines using a paper piercer. To finish I poked six holes (three in each cheek) and threaded some hemp twine through them for whiskers. I used tape on the back to hold them in place.
I attached the cat face to a 3.5 x 2.5 Pink Pirouette card - which I actually stamped on! I created adotted border using a piece of Creamy Caramel cardtock, Close to Cocoa ink and the Sassy Circles stamp set! I added a sentiment and a bit of May Arts ribbon.
I think this would make a really cute gift tag - maybe with a gift card adhered to the inside. What do you think? :)
