K.I.S.S. Birthday Card

This card is definitely a "Keep It Simple Stamper" card.  For a cat lover though, it has everything it needs :)  The colors came from the "Lilac, Navy and White" Rebel Challenge on RRD!

Stamps: cat from Just Sayin' and sentiment from Nature Notes (Rogue Redhead Designs)

Believe it or not this little card has 3 layers in addition to it's base.  I started by stamping the cat and sentiment onto white cardstock.  I then trimmed the panel but made the bottom of the piece a little higher than the image to let the cat's tail hang out of the "frame", something the Technique Junkies taught me with their "Out of the Box" technique.

 I matted the white panel with some navy cardstock.  The final step was to stamp the cat again on lilac designer paper (there's some texture and dots but those are hard to see in the picture).  I cut this lilac cat out and paper pieced it to the white one.  Next time, I may try the same technique with some textured paper for the kitty.


I am entering this card in the following fab challenges:
