Cat Card I - Sympathy

 This card was made for a loving cat owner who recently had to euthanize his sweet cat.  I remember that his cat enjoyed looking out the kitchen window to watch the birds or squirrels on the nearby tree.
 I thought it would be poetic to use dies to make a card that looked like the cat is now on the tree looking wistfully at her kind owner in the house.  The Spellbinder and IO dies made the card a snap to make.
 For  the sentiment I used my new toy, 'Misti', to help align the Hero Arts stamped words then I heat embossed them with silver powder. The Misti will be in the HM Ben Franklin Craft stores very soon so you too can purchase and enjoy this unique stamping tool.  I hope this post has encouraged and inspired you to create cards anytime you want to express and send heartfelt messages.
