Thank You Kitten Trio

Hello! Here is another card I made for my friend who had to put her young black cat to sleep. She wanted another card to send out to friends. I will be making 3 more of these for her.

I began with a base card in white card stock and layered it with GKD Dusty Sage. Next, I cut a layer in white using Spellbinders Marvelous Squares and adhered it to my base card. I put this aside and worked on my focal panel. 

I cut three kittens with Poppy Stamps Baby Kittens die in black card stock. Next, I cut a fence in kraft card stock using Memory Box Rounded Fence die and a leaf branch cut from Poppy Stamps Leafy Sprig die. Having prepared my die cut images, I then cut my focal layer in white card stock using another die from Spellbinders Marvelous Squares. Before removing it from the die I stamped a grass border on the bottom of the layer in Memento Bamboo Leaves ink with a stamp from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. In addition, I sponged Memento Cantaloupe and Tangelo inks at the top of this layer and then stamped my sentiment (GKD Autumn Splendor STV Kit).

After removing my focal layer from the die, I positioned and adhered the fence, kittens and leafy sprig onto my panel. This panel was then popped onto my base card with dimensionals and my project was complete.

I really enjoyed making this card and I hope that whoever my friend sends it to will enjoy it as well.
Thanks for stopping by and until next time.....make it a great day!
