Cat Lover's Birthday Card

As you can see, I took a little break from making resin pieces to make a B-day card for a cat lover. I only had two cat stamps...really got to go to Ben Franklin Crafts and get the new cat stamp by Sister Stamps. This big cat with glasses is by Stampendous and G Studio makes the 'What's Up' stamp.
I love making, sending and receiving interactive cards so the base for this card got me excited because it was well designed and had lots of possibilities.  It was made using a Sizzix flip-its die purchased from Ben Franklin Crafts.
The polka dot star was a leftover from another Sizzix die project and the balloons were cut from scrap using dies from a Sizzix die/stamp birthday set. Pop-up foam dots were put behind both cats and the balloons.
As you can see I was able to include another resin piece.  This charm pull was made using a clear plastic charm and includes a mini transparent cat sticker and some stars which were embedded in the layers of resin to appear as if they were floating.  All parts (except sticker) were purchased at BFC. This cat charm pull was taped behind the card so that it dangles through the punched hole in the card.
Here are the main supplies used for this card. The smaller cat stamp is from Hanko Designs.  Oh, the striped design around the bigger cat in the front of the card was made with skinny washi tape.  On the right hand corner of the card die packaging you can see a sticker indicating that the package contains a talking sticker.  I applied the sticker to the back of my card so that the recipient could hear a personally recorded birthday message and my card became even more interactive. If you and the person you send a card to have cell phones with the app feature, you can make your cards extra special too.  I had so much fun designing and creating this card that I had to share the outcome with blogland. I hope you enjoyed seeing and learning about this cat lover birthday card.  Please come back soon to see more of my creations and perhaps learn some useful information. Happy Crafting!
