Happy Friday, everyone! Are you ready for the weekend? As usual, I have to work tonight, but my dad and step-mom have invited the boys for a sleepover so hubby is going to pick me up after work and we might go to a late movie or something. He's been wanting to see the A-Team.
Before I head out, I wanted to share one last knitting themed card from the set I made for my friend. I thought this one turned out super cute.
The stamp is called "sleeping kitty" from Stampendous, and I just couldn't resist this little guy. I colored him with Copics to resemble a kitty from my childhood, the infamous Orange Peel Hawkeye Superkitty. Now that was a cat! I blew up an extra of the image I used in yesterday's post and cut out the ball of yarn and added that under his paw.
To assemble the card, I started with some cream Bazzill cardstock, and covered it almost completely with this great sketched flower patterned paper from American crafts. I used the blue flipside for some matting, and a sheet from K&Comany's Citronella 4x6 stack directly under the kitty. Love that lemony yellow! And what kitty doesn't love to sleep in the sun? I attached this with dimentionals.
I used another little strip of each of those to mat my sentiment, which I wrote by hand with a black Pilot pen, "eat, sleep, knit" to continue the theme that my friend had requested, and adhered that directly to the card.
For the final touch, I cut two tiny slits in the fold of the card and threaded through some cheapie $.50 pale turquoise ribbon from A.C. Moore. I forget the brand. I tied those in little bows and stuck a mini glue dot behind the knots to hold them in place.
I hope you like it! Have a great weekend everybody!
