Happiness is a handmade card



From Meow To You - cat card with a surprise!

Hi everyone, I'm over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today to show you a cat card with a surprise using My Favorite Things Cool Cat

This design works best with a side fold card base rather than top fold, because the surprise is the miniature ball of wool, and you want that to hang straight down. 

On my card base, I positioned and stamped a sentiment from My Favorite Things Cool Cat.

I layered a panel die cut with Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles and stamped with the paw print from MFT Cool Cat with a frame made from three layers of fun foam and a layer of grey card stock die cut with Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frames

I stamped, coloured with alcohol markers and die cut with the matching dies a cat, cat bed and food bowl from MFT Cool Cat and adhered them to the panel and frames.

Finally, I made a miniature ball of wool, used a needle to thread its tail end through a small gap in the fun foam layers of the frame, and adhered the end securely on the back of the panel. The entire panel was then stuck to the card base.

That's it from me this week - thanks for looking!



  1. OMG Esther ! This card is so adorable ! Love your design with the wall pattern paper with paws, so cute ! And what a clever idea (again !) to make a miniature ball of wool hang from the frame ! I love it ! Thanks for sharing and for inspiring.

  2. Seriously inventive - as ever. Nice limited colour choices too :)
