Spellbinders Purrfect-ly Elegant Cats Anniversary Card

Hello and welcome to day two of the 2018 Cat Lovers Hop!

Today I have another fab giveaway for you, so be sure to read to the end. I thought this lovely pair of cats would make a sweet anniversary card for my feline-loving friends. Entwined tails are definitely a hallmark of ktty antics, perfect for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

The heart was originally gold, too (somehow I lost the pic), but it seemed overwhelming, so I broke it up by using a Copic marker to change it to red. I like that it kept its shine.

For the inside and the envelope, I just embossed the dies. In the picture you can see the embossing on the card a little better because I highlighted it a bit with some chalks. In real life, the tactile feel of the embossing adds elegance to the card.


  • Spellbinders Purrfect, Pawing Around & Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame dies
  • DCWV chalkboard & shimmer stacks
  • Recollections 110# cream cardstock
  • Spellbinders Platinum Pack 3 poster board – gold
  • Copic marker R29
  • Pebbles, Inc. Pearlescent Chalks Jewel Tones
  • Simply Defined Double Sided Adhesive & Stay-Put Glue
  • Misc. Ribbon

I’m playing along with the following challenges – click on any one of them for more information on how you can join the fun:

  1. Yes, I agree, the red heart is purrfect and I adore that kitty die and your design. I’d give that card to my own hubby for our anniversary. I adore Spellbinders. Liked and commented there. Popped over to Instagram and am a new follower and commented. My Insta name is donnamundinger. (I’m so creative. LOL) xxD

  7. Love this elegant card, D.Ann!!! The lacy dies and beautiful embossing are just beautiful. Genius idea to color your doily…..looks great as a metallic red!!
    Holey Moley….I am totally buzzed with chocolate and caffeine to try to put a dent on my commenting on all the fabulous Hop projects. I’m not sure if I am supposed to make all separate comments for all your bonus entries or what?? I’m sure it is perfectly clear to everyone else, it’s just my slightly inflamed cerebral state right now that is confusing me. Ha.
    Thanks so much for being a part of the 2018 Cat Lovers Hop!!!

  8. Oh goodness, D.Ann, I’m trying to count Spellbinder dies but now I’m not sure I’m doing it right! Do we count the Spellbinder sets you used, or the actual individual dies (even if from the same set?) . This brain is running on empty..haha!

  9. I just realized when coming back for your email and recounting the Spellbinders dies that I missed the opportunity for one bonus entry because I told you I did all that stuff in one post. So here’s a bonus option post about following you on Instagram with my own name. (Now off to email which is one of the 3 entries, right?) xxD


  10. Beautiful, elegant card, D.Ann! Love the fancy dies you used! This is a gorgeous anniversary card! The kitties are so ornate and beautiful! Thank you – and thank Spellbinders – for the awesome giveaway! I just went over and thanked them (I’m Karen Garber on FB). Here’s my post:

  11. Just followed you on Instagram. I’m fitkit2018 over there. I should tell you – I don’t really do Instagram. I used a friend’s tablet to set up my account a while back but I think you need a smartphone or tablet to use IG. I have an old flip-phone and PC so I’m old-fashioned (and poor haha). Thank you for the giveaway!
