Kitty – Birthday Card

Hi There, Sharing a birthday card that I made for my sister-in-law, who’s name is “Kitty”. I thought Candio – SVG Cuts from the Miss Kitty blog hop would be perfect for her birthday. This .svg was only available during the blog hop.


I uploaded the file to Cricut Design Studio and cut out the image on my Cricut Explore. I inked around the edges of the kitty with Baby Blue Chalk ink.

The dress, sleeves and bow were inked with Dew Drop Memento – Rose Bud ink.

The sentiment is from “My Creative Time – You Had Me At Meow” stamp. Stamped with  VersaMark – Onyx Black and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

The balloons were cut out with my Cuttlebug and Craftin Desert Diva’s – Party Dies onto watercolour paper. I coloured the balloons with Talons Transparent Watercolours. Stamped the image on the top balloon with face from Peachy Keen Stamps – PKSC – 33 September 2014 with Memento – Tuxedo Black.

Used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen for the eyes on the balloon and Candio. Also on the bow.

Then cut a small whole into the balloons and added some twine from American Crafts – Premium Ribbon.

The borders were cut with a combination of Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames and My Creative Time -Stitched Rectangular Frames and More. Used 3M VHB – 2 sided tape between the layers of the base card. Hope you like it!
