Keep Calm and Purr On!

Hi friends!  Have you checked out the Kat's Meow Release from Kat Scrappiness, yet?  It is a cat lover's dream!   Today, I am sharing a card that I created for the release, but I created it for my dad!  This kitty soooo reminded me of his cat, Grady!  She is such a princess and we all just love her! 

I colored up the kitty from the Pawsome Cats Stamp Set with Copic in the Warm Grey family. (W10, W8, W6, W4, W2), used the coordinating dies to cut it out and set it aside.  
When I saw this stamp, I envisioned the cat sprawled out in a cat bed, so I used my Cricut to cut one out using some cardstock and one of the patterns from The Kat's Meow 6 x 6 Paper Pad.   I layered some coordinating cardstock colors with another piece of the patterned paper and I used the Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle Dies on each layer to add interest.
Before I adhered them to the card front, I wrapped it with crochet thread and tied a bow.  I heat embossed my sentiment from the Pawsome Cats Sentiments Stamp Set and die-cut it using the coordinating dies.  For the last, but not least bit, I made a ball of "yarn" using the crochet thread.  I have to admit, that was the hardest part of this entire card.  I kept dropping it... it was so frustrating, but I think it was 100% worth it!   I also added some Clear AB Glass Bubbles for some additional dimension. 
I seriously can't wait to give this card to my dad!  I think he will be over the moon!    Do you have a cat lover in your life that would be able to appreciate this cutie!?  
Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Xoxo, Kim
