Card details

  • Cut, score and fold an A2 top-folding card base.
  • Cut a piece of The Kat’s Meow Paper Pad to 3.75”x5”. Cut a piece of white card stock to the same size.
  • With the 3D Box, Grass Add-on cut a strip of grass from green card stock. Use the same die to cut into the patterned paper. (about 1” up from the bottom)
  • Glue the patterned paper to the solid white rectangle. Inlay the grass die-cut.
  • Using the Nesting Stitched Dome Dies, tape two together to create a frame and die-cut 3 frames from white card stock, glue these together. Using the larger die cut a solid dome.
  • Using the inner piece, and the cloud stencil, ink blend clouds for the background.
  • Stamp your kitty and 2 fish skeleton. Color with alcohol markers.
  • Glue a piece of fishing line in between the fish skeletons. It should be about 4” long.
  • Decide where your dome die will be placed. Glue the fishing line to the back of the domed die, at the top.
  • Adhere the dome die with liquid glue. Center the cloud panel and glue to the card base.
  • Add foam to the back of your kitty, leaving a bit of space free towards the bottom.
  • Center the string of the fish and loosely adhere your fish so it moves a bit.
  • Add a bit of glue to the bottom of the kitty, where it will attach to the dome and add to the frame.
  • Stamp your sentiment with the Simple Sentiments stamp and cut with the coordinating die.

  1. Hello Kathy, I’m visiting from the Cat Lovers Hop. You’ve made a fabulous card – I love this expectant-looking kitty eyeing up the fish bones 🙂 Beautiful make!

      1. What a great card! Something makes me think that another cat is about to leap in and steal that fish! Your design is so cute, and I love the striped background!

    So cute! So clever to use little fishing string to suspend the fish bones. I bet it’s adorable swinging over his head.

  3. Oh, how fun! Such a creative idea to have the fish bones dangling above the kitty.
    Thank you so much for helping us kick off the #2022CatLoversHop!!

  5. What a darling card! Poor little kitty, I do hope that she gets some meat off those bones! fabulous shading. The green and orange pop on the card! Happy hopping!
