I could not resist the “Love Cats” stamp set as both of my daughter’s have cats for pets. Below is the card I made to send to them for for Valentine’s Day. Previously, I made THIS card for my hubby for Valentine’s Day.

I chose Sweet Sorbet, Basic Black and Basic White for this cute Valentine’s card. Tried to keep this card fairly simple, but wanted to add some “texture” to step it up a bit. I used the “Cane Weave 3D” Embossing Folder on a portion of the folded card base. Also to add more texture, I used the “Stitched Rectangles” Dies layered on a piece of Basic Black card stock as the focal point. Before attaching this layered panel to the card with dimensionals, I added a piece of Sweet Sorbet Baker’s Twine.

The small hearts on the Basic White layer came from one of the other “cat” stamp images. Using the “omitting” technique, I inked up (with markers) the 3 hearts and randomly stamped them on the white background. I am considering cutting the three hearts apart from the cat image on this stamp so that I can use them separately in the future.

The final touch was to add “Wink of Stella” Glitter Brush to the heart that is hanging from the cat’s tail. Sadly, the subtle shimmer is difficult to capture in a photo. Such a super CUTE card and fairly simple to create!
