Hello You... Cats in window silhouette C6 white card

Hi Craft addicts!

I had so much fun making this card and yes, I have used Peel Off stickers to create the main topper...if you want to know how I made it then read on!

GC 2019 - Hello - Hello You cats at window with hand painted bg C6 white li

How I made this card:-

  • I first of all took the Cats in silhouette Peel Off sticker (which I got from Craft Creation ages ago and am not sure they are still available).
  • I then used Red, Yellow and Orange Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paints to colour in the background - as the Peel Off acted as a type of resist i wasn't too worried about going over the lines!
  • Once it was dry, I stuck it to a piece of Silver Mirri card and cut around it so that there was a very narrow border. I then attached that to some black card. 
  • I also cut a panel of red and white diagonal striped paper (from Hunkydory's Colour Family paper pad) so that there was about 1/2" border on a C6 white linen effect card,
  • I edged it with a black alcohol marker and glued it to the card using Collall All Purpose Glue.
  • I then stuck the topper to the top half of the card using PVA glue.
  • I stamped the Hello You sentiment (which is from Creative Expressions) on to some black card using Versamark ink and added some True White Embossing powder and heat set it.
  • I then attached it to the bottom of the card with foam pads.

And there you are a bright and cheerful card that would be great to send to a friend just to say you are thinking of them.
