CASE-ing the Catty - Punch Bundle Section
August 16, 2020
Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty challenge!
If you've come from visiting Michelle's blog, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today! You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.
This week we are taking inspiration from the Punch Bundle section on pages 168-169.
My project this week is based on the simple and versatile layout of the card above. I've added a few more layers, but otherwise stayed close to it. In the catalogue it appeared that the patterned paper went to the edge of the card, but looking at it close-up, it appears to go over the edges or it could be a belly-band around the note-card sized base.
I have used the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper for my pet sympathy card. For me, pets are members of the family and their passing is always sad and distressing for everyone. I started with a Basic Black card base and added the red and white striped design leaving a small border on all sides. Over the top I have layered the heart and paw print design with a narrow border of Real Red on either side, taking it right to the edge of the card base.
I have die cut the scalloped heart with the Stitched Be Mine Dies and then dry embossed the inner heart with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder for some delicate texture. They were adhered flat to the card and overlapping. The cat was cropped from Basic Gray card stock with the Cat Punch and I've sponged the edges with Basic Gray ink to add some depth. I've popped the cat up on Black Dimensionals and added the bow using the cute 1/8" red and white design from the Playful Pets Trim Combo. The sentiment is from the Prized Peony stamp set and I heat embossed it in white on Basic Black card stock and cropped it with the stitched banner from the Tasteful Label Dies. To finish I fussy cut some paw prints from the patterned paper and placed them in the bottom section of the card.
For the inside, I have a Real Red mat for the writing panel and I added a narrow strip of each of the patterned paper designs at the bottom. I stamped the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set in black ink and finished with a little red glimmer heart.
With a change of sentiment, this card would be purr-fect (sorry couldn't help myself!) for a new kitty owner or cat lover or use the Dog Builder Punch for a doggy card.

Such a lovely card, although I hope you don't need to send many of them. I love the embossing on the die cut heart.

What a fabulous CASE! Your creation looks so different to the original but you can really see the origins of the design there. I love the red, black, and white combo and the kitty. Just fabulous, Judy!

These cards are awesome!! Especially the cat one. We have a farm,garden,pet store and they would be perfect to give to my customers to use when a friend loses a pet.!! I think I will put them on the counter and a donation jar next to it for costs. Thank you for this idea.

I like the idea of the sentiment on the banner Judy, and the use of the DSP is purr-fect too!

Beautiful Judy, I really love the footprints that you cut out and added to the bottom, they are a beautiful addition

I love your card. It's very pretty. I really didn't like this set and I do not have pets, but with all the samples I have been seeing, I think I may have to get it. TFS
