Have a Puurrfect Birthday Deb!


Evening everyone, Hope you're all well! It's my Sister-in-law's birthday today. Happy Birthday Deb! She loves cats, (she has two) so of course her card had to have a cat on it!
I've actually followed I ♥ ProMarkers sketch for this very quick and easy card. I've used a blank Craft Creations card and a stamped, heat embossed image by DoveCraft/TrimCraft Pepper & Friends. Coloured with Promarkers, (with a bit of added red gel pen on the heart to make it glitter) and a tiny butterfly charm, to go with the butterflies on the papers and image. All the papers came from the 6x6 paper pack Forever Friends, 'For You'.
The Fonts. The sentiment on the front of the card (Just Puurrfect) is called Linda's Lament, you probably already have it on your computer if not, Google the name.
The little butterfly on the sentiment is really the capital letter K from the font Sloneczko, (download HERE) which I've also used inside the card. It's all capital letters, so if you press for a capital, instead you get a little bee, fly, car, pencil, happy or sad faced sun, star or moon, etc.
I thought the butterfly font went well with the butterfly papers, charm and the butterfly on the image too.
I've also used Woodware punches, Martha Stewart fern punch and a Xcut punch for the front part of the flowers. It was the first punch I ever bought. It tore the paper the first time I used it and it still tears it now. Sharpening it the usual way doesn't seem to make any difference. Shame really, as I like that flower shape, but I'm really reluctant to buy another one as my other Xcut punch is rubbish too, but, my border Xcut punch is really good, and I'm very happy with that. But, on saying that, I do like the way is sort of 'tears' the paper, and makes the gingham paper look like cloth. Hopefully you won't notice the blue brads are slightly different blues, don't think that really matters!
That's it for now, oh except I did add some eye-lash wool...not sure if that will stay though. I thought it looked a bit cat whiskery! Thank you for stopping by.
