The cats I stamped and colored had been sitting on my desk for too long, so I turned them into cards. Although I'm an advocate for indoor cats, both cards feature cats in outdoor settings: one card has the cat sitting on a fence, while the other is sitting in a tree. Affiliate links below.
To make this card, I glued sky blue cardstock to a white card blank. I cut a woodgrain paper into strips, cut them 2/3 the length of my card, then snipped off the corners and glued them in place to make the fence. I tucked the cat behind the fence, glued on the paws, and added the sentiment. The stamps are from from the Peekaboo Pets stamp set, colored with Prismacolor colored pencils.
This card also started with sky blue cardstock on a white card base. I used a craft knife to cut a slit in a tree sticker, slid in the cat, then put the sticker on the background. I added the cloud stickers and tore a piece of green cardstock to make the grass. I glued the cat, paws, sentiment, and grass to the blue background.
Tomorrow I'll show you what I did with the dogs. Needless to say, they're neither on a fence nor in a tree.
