This card is ordered by a work-friend to my mom and the directiv was: a birthday card for a woman that loves cats, 15X10cm. So this is what i ended up with, i hope she gets happy and will approve of it.
I tried to keep the layout pretty simple sense the papers have a lot going on on them. The papers is from Basic Greys collection Max and Whiskers and i used my 6×6″ paperpad.I used a cream cardstock for the base and a golden shimmering one for the framing. Without seeing the shimmer i think it had the exact color as some of the yellow/light orange tones on the background-papers so i was thrilled finding it in my stash. I also like the edge it give the card when the light hit the shimmer. I got even more thrilled when i realized that i usually are thinking of putting it away sense it never seem to fit any of my projects. I have to use it more times with these papers!
The image is from my new stamp-set Meow Meow from recollections and i did the kitten very bright to keep a light look on the card. The cat is colored with Copics (I so love it, i didn’t spend much time when i needed it to be done quickly but it’s still way better then lots of time with promarkers!). On all the areas with colors, like the necklace and the pendant i colored a thin layer of N3 to dull out the color a bit to really match the backgroundpapers. The cat and the scalloped and regular circle, the circles are nestabilities, have both been put up bit foam tape, and the backing in the circle have been slightly distressed with Broken China.
I tried to mirror the inside with the front with the exception that the inside scalloped Circle is bigger (more room for writing) and that the proportions on the patterned papers therefore got a bit smaller.
