The cat hair on this piece of Playful Pets DSP is SPOT ON!








Tutorial For This Card Is Below


So, Stink our black cat looks so much like this mischievous little buddy on the bottom. I think Stink thought so too. The struggle is real when you have a cat that cannot be without you and has to be in the middle of everything you are doing. See what I mean. I'm trying to take photos here.

TUTOTRIAL

1. Cut your pieces of card stock first.

Base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"(mine is Flirty Flamingo) 1st layer for the Base: 5 1/4" x 4" (mine is real red) 2nd layer for the base: 5" x 3 3/4" (mine is whisper white)

Piece to connect the base and front of easel together: 6" x 3" scored at 2 3/4"(end that attaches to the base card) and 5 1/2"(easel fold)


Front of the Easel card: 5 1/2" x 3" 1st Layer for the front: 5 1/4" x 2 3/4" 2nd layer for the front: 5" x 2 1/2" (this could be your DSP if you like. mine is Playful Pets DSP)


For your Easel "stopper": cut 3 1/4" x 1 1/4" (mine is Flirty Flamingo) 1st layer for "stopper": 3 1/16" x 1 1/16" (mine is Real Red) 2nd layer for the "stopper": 1 3/4 x 2 3/4"


2. Put your card together.


For the piece that connects the base of the card and the front of the card together to form the easel, the 2 3/4" scored end of the 6" x 3" piece attaches to the front of the base card directly in the middle of the base. See my photos above.


Now layer your cards making sure your stamping is done first.


I cut the two cats out of the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper. I attached Grumpy Cat to a small piece of card stock and scored it so it would stand up when popped up. I attached it under the base of the "stopper". It lays flat when the card is closed and pops up when the the card is opened.


I used dimensionals where I wanted depth. Stamp Sets used: Pampered Pets stamp set and Family Party stamp set.
