"Paws"itively Fantastic Birthday

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Kathleen Adams our challenge hostess for the month finishes off her month with one last challenge.

Apparently today is Black Cat Day! So for our challenge this week we are to either make a card with a cat on it or a Halloween card.

For my card today I decided to pull out my Mama Elephant Inside Pop Bunny and Cat die set which I have had sitting in my to use pile for a couple of months now. 

Seeing it was Black Cat Day, I decided to make my cat black but did add a few white highlights for some interest.

Sentiments used on this card are from DRS Designs.

As you can see the scene on the front and inside of the card are similar. I actually made the inside first and then decided to replicate the scene on the front.

I used Distress Oxide inks to create the grassy area, the sky and also the brick fence behind the cat. The brick fence was created using a stencil.

I added action wobbles to both of the cat's heads so they have movement too.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

Here is a side on view of the inside of my card so you can see the pop-up a little better.

And another side on view this time from the right hand side.

And one last view of the inside of the card this time from overhead.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

Super cute - LOVE the bobbing kitty head. We really are two peas in a pod Frances - I was just looking at this die set. Didn't get it, but had a good look and gave it a good think through then put it on my Wish List. :-)
