My birthday card came together really quick.  I knew I wanted to use this fun new Little Critters dies & Meow Mix set. So I’m looking thru my paper stash & find I have these blue polka dot frames left over from something else. I thought they’d look really cute w/ an embossed, yellow glitter bg. After die cutting the yellow glitter paper, I embossed it w/ a numbers folder then added my polka dot frames & a couple of smaller layers in the center.

The kitties were die cut a bunch of times out of the 3 papers. On the white kitties, I positioned the first part of the greeting & stamped it on each kitty. The rest of the greeting was stamped on a left over die cut arrow. I added some little balloons and a few threads of blue embroidery thread wrapped around one kitty tail.

Here’s a look at the inside using some left overs.

  1. What a cute card. I love the papers you used; such a pretty colour combination. You outdid yourself with the inside of the card.
