Good morning and welcome to the final day of the 2018 Cat Lovers Hop! With over 175 entries already, there has been loads of amazing crafty inspiration and feline fun!
I have a fun spinner card to show you:
I love how that die looks like a ball of yarn! The little hearts at the bottom almost look like cat heads, too. It was a little daunting figuring out how to put this together as I needed to hide the spinning mechanism beneath the kitty, but I used some circle dies and foam (and baby powder to help it spin a little more freely), and got it to work. There is a small solid circle of foam underneath the white circle on the back side of kitty, glued to kitty. The pink circle on kitty is a donut, with the hole smaller than the white circle, but larger than the foam circle, allowing free movement. The pink circle was glued to the foam ring on the card, the inside of which is larger than the white circle on the kitty, allowing free movement. Totally confused? Me, too, but it works. : )
After stamping this sweet decorative cat, I colored her up using gel pens and added some glossy accents on her eyes and paws.
The inside die cut says You Make Every Day Perfect… I just cut the first e off of Perfect and cut and extra u from You and made it Purfect. I used some chalks and a sparkle pen to make the sentiment stand out a little more. (Those really are two different shades of pink cardstock, the camera doesn’t show it very well.)
I love the sweet sentiment stamped on the back!! I’m going to be using it a lot to thank the many good friends that I have!
