What’s better than a Coffee Cat card for your kitty loving friends?
Oops, I didn’t mean for that to sound like a pun (kitty, Kittie), but seriously, is there anything cuter than a sweet little cat purring over her cup of rich goodness? When I first saw this new set I just knew that I was going to have to jump in on the fun! If you love coffee and you love cats, this Coffee Cats set is for YOU! Read on to see see how I made this and see how I got those steamy hearts just so.
Crimped Card Base
- Cut an A2 sized card base and a 5.50″ x 4.25″ piece of cardstock using white cardstock.
- Run the white layer of cardstock through your crimper.
- Attach the crimped layer to the card base using ATG adhesive.
The Coffee Cat
- Stamp the cat image on hot press watercolor paper using Nocturne ink and heat set.
- Use a brush and reinkers to watercolor the cat image and cup.
- Fussy cut the image out. Note: There is a coordinating die set for the Coffee Cats but I don’t have it.
- Stamp the cat image and sentiment on a piece of pale pink cardstock.
- Apply a strip of rolled up double stick tape all the way around the cat, tail and cup image and attach it directly over the stamped image. Pro Tip: I knew I wouldn’t be able to cut out the steamy heart images so stamping the image and layering the fussy cut image directly over it allowed me to line up the cup and steam perfectly.
- Attach the cat and sentiment layer to aqua cardstock using ATG adhesive.
- Apply ATG adhesive to the to the back of the aqua and image layer and attach it to the crimped card base.
- Finish by attaching a few tiny flowers and foliage to the cat and card base.
