I wish I was a cat!

My parents asked me to make a card to send to a friend of theirs that needed a bit of cheering. So I've been wanting to try doing something with an image from Free Vintage Stamps this was a perfect opportunity.

Using a word processing program, I imported the image and resized it and then just copied and paste 3 more times. I printed it on 'index weight' paper, then cut out less of the imagine each time.
The first layer was mounted on a piece of cereal box that was put through the Xyron and I colored the lettering.
The second layer the stool was colored, the third her ribbon and socks, the last the kitten and puppy.

I used Twinkling H2Os to color. I decide to glue each layer, because foam dots would make it too high.

The inside I put the patterned paper on some cereal box with the Xyron and cut with the some Sizzix dies.

All of the paper was found in my scrap box.


  1. Love your layering on this card, Diane! Beautiful. I bet it's just the perfect thing to make the friend smile.

  2. Great Card Diane.. love the vintage image and all the intricut die cuts// the flourishes are amazing :-) I'm sure your mum & dads friend will love it x
