Birthday Present from a Cat

 This slimline birthday card is for a guy who is a two cat owner and is responsible for their litter box.  I discovered from my last shaker card that it is easier to die cut the foam sheet if you glue it to card stock first. ( The foam sheet won't warp when run through the Big Shot machine.)  I made two card stock/foam pieces and die cut them using the Whimsy marquee frame.  Those two pieces were glued together.  I also die cut the black and white printed word front piece.
 I glued a piece of acetate behind the black and white print front. To enclose the cavities I glued a plain piece of card stock behind the card.  Dotted paper was cut with the die and the words were stamped on them before they were glued into the cavities.
 The Whimsy cats and litter box were stamped on marker paper and colored in with Copic pens.  I didn't make the cats more colorful because the birthday person's  cats are all grey.
 The cats and litter box were fussy cut and glued onto the card front.  Next the Queen and Co. Toppings Pop pieces were filled into the cavities before the front piece was glued into place.  This card looks difficult to make but it was really easily completed in a couple of hours.  I think the cat loving birthday guy will like the funny card. Do you?

Your fun and whimsical cat card makes me smile! Thank you for including all the details on the construction of your shaker card. Sounds like adhering the foam sheet to the cardstock before die cutting the windows is the way to go... will try that!
