March 2019 NC Demos Blog Hop

Welcome to the NC Demos Blog Hop!  This is my first one so I hope this will go well.  The theme for this month is Cute Critters and as a Mom to 4 rescue dogs and one cat I know cute critters even when they are not so cute.

I decided to do a simple card and one that can be done quick and easy in any class setting.  May even add this to one of my classes.

Also I kept the colors basic with just a little bling.  The stamp sets I used were Happy Tails and Nine Lives

Card base is Basic Black 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4

Whisper White cut 5 1/4 x 4 and this was going to be my background.  There are so many cute little stamps in the Nine Lives set that I planned to use them as my background so I took my D block and arranged the ball of yarn, the bow, the hearts, the mouse and the goldfish in a cute pattern inked them and stamped them all at once on the background if I had a space the felt off I took the paw print from the Happy Tails stamp set and filled it in.  I then attached this to the card base.

For the inside I took another piece of Whisper White 5 1/4 x 4 and again using black ink stamped the Salutation in the center, the food dish and the mouse in the lower left and to even it out added 4 paw prints to the upper left.  Attached this to the inside.

I then took a scrap piece of white and in black ink stamped the kitty cat.  I decided to leave him plan because not everyone has the same cat.  I used the cat punch to cut him out and put him off to the side.  I tied a piece of the Black/Silver Stitch Metallic Ribbon to the front center of the card and tied a bow.   I then took a piece of Basic Black cardstock and cut it 2 1/4 x 2 1/2 and layered that on a piece of Silver Glimmer paper 2 1/2 x 2 3/4.  I put the cat in the center using dimensionals and put this piece on the card under the bow and on a angle using dimensionals again.

To finish the card I stamped the meow in black on a scrap of white cut it out and put it close to the cat.  This is my tribute to all those adore able Cute Critters out there.
