Happy Purrrrrday!

Hi everyone and Happy New Year!  A cat wearing a party hat and using a noise maker counts for a Happy New Year card, right?  WooHoo!  Here's to a 2014 filled with lots of crafty goodness!

Today's card features a sweet cat from the LOL Cats stamp set...a set filled with all kinds of darling cats and kitty friendly phrases.  I stamped the cat once on the circle and then a second time on a piece of scrap cardstock.  Once I colored in the second stamped image, I cut it out and used foam tape to pop up Mr. Party Cat.  I used a stamp block to bend the sentiment (just one of the reasons I love acrylic stamps!) around the circle.

Along with the stamp set, I also grabbed the Hearts Die set to create some fun cut outs on the left side of the card.  I simply layered a piece of designer paper behind the cuts outs and then used a white gel pen to add some faux stitching. 

I hope you enjoyed today's card and you're off to a fabulous start to 2014!

Of course it counts! Happy New Year and Happy Birthday all rolled into one fabulous card *giggle* I love the use of the heart dies this way. And that kitty (smiling). I know someone who's going to have that look in a few days *hahaha* Thanks for sharing this delightful card.
