Sizzix Bird Crazy & Crazy Cat Anniversary Card

Hello! I’m happy you’re here!

Today’s crafting whim is back to papercrafting with this sweet anniversary card:

Aren’t they just the cutest couple?!!  I got the idea to make this sweet lady cat all dolled up from a post by Christi over at Art-Without-Anxiety — she put her cat in a Hero Arts Dress a while ago and it was DARLING! (ENABLER ALERT: In addition to great ideas, Christi has AMAZING giveaways on her blog — Art Without Anxiety! Click HERE to go to her blog and follow her. Check the end of this post to see  the fabulous box chocked full of crafty goodies she sent me, including the dress I used on my cat in this card!!… THANK YOU, Christi!!)

I popped up the beak and eyes (and made them shine with Glossy Accents) and added in some tulle (on her hat) and pearls for some 3d effects (like her ring and earring).

I like how the white pen adds some extra detail. The wing was scored and popped up, too. I like the lace embossing folder (new to me!) and lace edges for the background. The embossing stands out just a smidge more when you run Versamark over it.

I got excited about sending this card and filled out the inside before I remembered to take a picture. LOL!… here’s the inside lower right corner stamped with the mini versions, which are in reverse…

I think it’s sweet how he’s giving her a quick peck on the cheek!

  4. Oh, my what a fun couple!! I can’t stop smiling! Love how you have dressed them up; they look ready for a fancy date. And great tip about using the versamark on an embossed layer; I’ll have to keep that one in mind. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
