With a Friend In the Garden – Art Impressions Cat Card

Well, the Cat Lovers Hop is purring right along and today finds us reaching the half-way point already!

My first card for today happens to use the prize set that Art Impressions is offering some fortunate hopper over on HerPeacefulGarden.blogspot.com: With a Friend. You can see the details over on the main hop page HERE.

Isn’t that scene just DARLING?!! It goes well with the current Art Impressions challenge: Stamp a Scene!

I embossed the stamp on the sweet Spellbinders shaped card base, then, to make the scene stand out, I stamped it again onto white cardstock and watercolored the image. When done, I popped it up with a couple of foam sheets and ran a black Sharpie across the edges BEFORE taping it down to the base.

It looks really cool in real life popped up like that! The sweet words say: “In the Garden with a friend is the best Place to be.” Awww! I’m sure they would’ve said ‘snoozing with a friend’ if they’d’ve had room! : )

  • Art Impressions: With a Friend Window stamp
  • Spellbinders Decorative Labels One
