Father’s Day just passed. And I wanted to share a card that I gave to my husband. I love the new Krafty Kat images created by Margaret Sherry. Have you got a chance to ink them up? What I love most about them is the facial expressions and their crasy whiskers.
For this card, I used one of the images from You’re Retro! (30-239). I just love that cat face looking bewildered driving his motorcycle. And I love those whiskers just blowing in the wind.
I stamped the image on a scrap piece of white CS with Memento Tuxedo Black. I then colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils. To add depth to the motorcycle chrome, I hightlighted the edges with a silver gel pen. And to add shimmer, I used a glitter pen in some areas and Wink of Stella clear in others. Once it was all colored, I carefully fussy cut the cat as well as his driving hat and set it aside.
I then created the card panel. I cut a small rectangle from white CS. I used a simple blue patterned paper from Me and My Big Ideas as my sky. To create the “road”, I used black cardstock and die cut the curve using the Landscape Trio die from Mama Elephant. I then added white gel pen to the impressed lines of the die cut. Once I trimmed the papers, I added my cat image and cap with dimensional foam. The panel was adhered to the card based. I added a sentiment from the same clear stamp set and then added a sentiment from “The Man” from Avery Elle.
My husband loved it by the way. He was quite impressed and lined them up with the other 2 cards I have given this year.
Enjoy your week!
