I had cut this cat image out and found it too big for a project I did earlier this week, but definitely wanted to use it. So, I played with some backgrounds today and thought this one was perfect to go with my cat.
This isn’t quite a slimline card, but it isn’t my typical A2 size, either. It’s 6″ tall by 3 1/2″ wide. Unfortunately, that means I’ll have to make a special envelope for it, as well as hand write my Christmas message. The past few years I figure I spend so much time making the Christmas cards, that instead of hand writing my Christmas message, I print it out and paste it in. That means all my cards for the year have to be either vertical, or horizontal A2 cards. It works, mostly.
To do the sentiment, I don’t have Christmas cat sentiments, as I’m not a cat person. However, this cat just really appeals to me. So, I did the sentiment the correct size on Word, printed it out, then rubbed pencil on the back of the sentiment. Put it on my background and traced the words with my pencil to mark it on the background. Then went over it with a pen. It sounds like a lot of work, but really didn’t take long at all.
Even though it’s the same image I used for the Mod Squad Silhouette challenge, this is a different cut out and a different size, as well as a totally different card. And, as little as the picture makes it seem, the pink splatter is almost exactly the same color as the card base.
Thank you for spending some of your valuable time with me today!
