Art Impressions Kitten Vanity PopCard

Popping back in with a darling pop-up card for the Cat Lovers Hop.

The current Art Impressions Challenge is Add Embellishments. My embellishing starts with paper… I chose this weathered wood paper to look like the exterior of a house.

Note to self: don’t tack down the bottom of the background paper on the front of the card  until AFTER cutting the slits for pop-up mechanism… BELIEVE me, it’s better!! : )

On the ‘wall’ I hung some Graphic 45 ‘pictures’ and there are ribbon ‘curtains.’ I love the realistic antics of these stamped kittens whether they’re getting into everything or snoozing away!! A perfect fit for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Animal Antics and the Lost Coast Designs & Carmen’s Veranda Challenge #63 Cats & Dogs!

There is some twine to make the yarn ball more realistic. For the ribbed ‘wood baseboards’, I took a thin strip of kraft paper and scored along it every 1/8″, then shaved an 1/8″ piece perpendicular to the scoring.

Add a few well placed “meows”, including one for the extra kitty who’s managed to get in behind the vanity, climb up the back, and is mischievously about to bat at the roses!

Embellishing also means bling… foil for the mirror, glossy accents for the vase and eyes and loads of Sparkle Pen to add shine to the purse, fur stole, hat and roses. Oh, and don’t forget to embellish the envelope with a few stamps, too. : )

Thanks for the tip on not adhering the card front until after working on the mechanism…ha! The sweet little kitty mischief inside , and that sweet old-fashioned parlor, just makes me sigh with delight!”

  10. OMGoodness, D.Ann!!!! This is a big WOW! I LOVE this card! My favourites are always the scene cards! This must have taken ages but well worth your effort! I love all the little details – I keep scrolling up and looking at it again and again! I don’t know how you will be able to give this one away – I don’t think I could part with it! I would have to keep it on permanent display! I haven’t been through the entire hop yet but I have a feeling this is going to be my favourite card of the hop!
