Hey! Hey!



Hey!  Hey!

Sharing a fun card featuring one of the cute cats from Paper Smooches Feline Friends today.

I wanted to recreate the reflection you see on someone's sunglasses.  The cat was stamped in black on dark gray cardstock which was then trimmed down to fit behind the glasses.

The chipboard glasses are from Pink Paislee's Hey Kid collection.  Since I wanted it to look like real glasses, I left the chipboard on the acetate, carefully trimming around them.  They weren't black enough for my taste, so I colored them with a black Sharpie.  Then the stamped images were carefully adhered to the back of the glasses and the whole piece was adhered to the card.



The papers are from Crate's Boys Rule collection, and the sentiment was created with Lawn Fawn's Cole's Alphas which were cut and run through my Xyron.

I get a kick out of this card and hope you do too!

Hopefully your week is going well.....I'm taking advantage of the fact that the girls are gone to do some major purging.  I cannot tell you how many Kids Meal toys are in the trash.....

  13. Mim, this tickled me silly!! I am pinning this and have ideas already starting. I can think of lots of other fun things that could be put as the reflection in the glasses, although I'm not sure anything else would be as hysterical as your groovy cat!! (Good job with the purging! I always did that when DS was away at summer camp!) I hope you are having a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell
