The Purrfect Birthday Card

Posted on

I am so excited about the latest card that I made. It features the cat for the Storybook Friends digital stamp from Stampin’ Up. The reason I am so happy with this card is because the little ball of yarn I set out to create worked out just like I hoped it would!

Storybook Friends Cat

 

I wanted something without a lot of visual clutter but, that had something special to draw one’s attention. In some ways too, I guess I really love cards that have a tactile element to them.  My favorite books to buy for babies are the kind that have the different rub and feel pages like fuzzy ducks and scratchy sand and such. So that is why I added the little ball of yarn.

After several failed attempts (the glue was causing the ink of the stamp to run) I realized that the trick was to glue the yarn to a blank paper circle and then adhere that over the stamped version of the yarn ball.

I can’t wait to send this card to my niece Brianna for her birthday this summer. She really is perfect!
