Kitty Happy Birthday Tent Card for Debs

It was our good friend Debbie's birthday on Sunday and this was the kitty tent card I made for her. I followed the Splitcoast Stampers Tent Card Tutorial again but changed my measurements. I used SU! Bashful Blue CS measuring 24 x 12 cms, scoring at 12 cms for the card base and CS measuring 12 x 12 cms and scoring at 3, 6 and 9 cms for the stand. This time I trimmed some off both ends of the stand and I attached the back of the stand to the card base before I glued on my back panel.

For the back panel, I stamped the Hero Arts Clouds stamp on a piece of Whisper White CS and added the birds.  The kitty is a Sizzix die cut which I cut out of CS plus a piece of patterned paper which I glued together.  I sponged Pumpkin Pie ink around the kitty to add a touch of definition.  I added black CS behind the face and have added green crystals for eyes.  The kitty is sandwiched between two torn strips of Olive CS.  The sentiment circle is popped up.  I added decorative photo corners and some punched butterflies to the frame to finish off the card front.

This photo shows the back of the card and the decorated envelope flap.  I sponged Old Olive ink around the Whisper White panel.  For the sentiment I used my Nellie oval dies and I added Pumpkin brads.  I covered the envelope flap with patterned paper and added the "So Glad We're Friends" sentiment circle element.

We had a birthday barbecue for Debs on Saturday night. Her hubby Mike brought his camera and took some fab photos, I love this photo of us two gals together! Debs is on the left.
