Happy birthday

Hello everyone,

For today's Katzelkraft post I have made a birthday card. I will send this to my friend who likes cats ! Let's hope she doesn't read my blogposts! lol

I made the background for this card by brayering yellow paint first, then pink over the top when the yellow was dry. While the pink was still wet, I put a stencil on it and wiped away the paint with a baby wipe. Such a cool effect I think. 
Next I stamped the cat, the balloon and the sentiment on the card using my stamping tool. I also stamped the cat and balloon on white card stock. I coloured these images in and cut them out, adhering them over the top of the stamped ones on the card. I did add some washi tape before gluing down the cat so he has something to sit on. 

I have used the following stamps:

Thank you for stopping by today. 


  1. Creating just the right background for shades of black/grey can sometimes be difficult, but you have done the fat cat proud with your color palatte here! A perfect and cheery birthday card for a cat lady! Mwah!

  2. Your cat-loving friend is going to love this card - I most certainly do! The colour combination thrills me, and that furry coat on the cat is beauty!
