Comfy cat

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Seeing Red.So we’d love you to use red in your cards/projects.We have 2 fabulous sponsors – Lauretta’s Digital Stamps,CoCoDingo Digital Stamps.For full details to see how to play along and be in for the chance to win please visit the challenge blog.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT’s wonderful work too.

For my card I’ve used the most adorable Chat qui dort (Cat who sleeps) and coloured this sleeping cutie with ProMarkers.I made a shadow box card adapting the size to fit a 5″ x “7 envelope.The front has been cut from a piece of Basic Grey  paper (although it’s more like a lightweight cardstock) from the Cupcake Collection and a Nellie’s Multi Frame Die has been used to cut the aperture.To get the image in the right place I printed it in the middle of a sheet of cardstock and laid the front piece over the top and marked in pencil where I needed to trim it to. I used a length of raffia ribbon along the bottom and made a bow,splaying it out at the top to make it full.I printed the sentiment on the computer,mounted it onto some coordinating paper and added flowers cut from some unfurled raffia ribbon and placed some buttons in the centres.
