Paw-sitively My Purr-sonal Favorite – Cat Card

Hello and welcome back to the mid-way point of the Cat Lovers Hop!

There is a super special surprise with this post, so be sure to read all the way to the end!

This card features the ever-so-fun Essentials by Ellen Leading Ladies stamps designed by Brandi Kincaid – especially Cat Lady.

Fun, right?! After stamping, coloring and fussy-cutting, I used a Viva Perlen-Pen to make the ice cream look realistic and some Nuvo drops for the Cherry…

And, I stamped up an envelope to match:

  • Fine Touch metallic poster board – blue
  • Recollections 110# cardstock – white; 65# cardstock white & brown
