Little Cat Birthday Parade

I'm really enjoying colouring these adorable cats from the Mama Elephant Little Cat Agenda stamp set. 

For this card, I wanted a birthday parade of Maine Coon cats (both the recipient of this card and I have Maine Coons). 

I began by die-cutting a scalloped border from an A2 note card size piece of white card. I stamped five cats, making sure to choose ones all going in the same direction to form a parade. I coloured them with alcohol markers, and added ear tufts with a black fine liner pen to turn them into Maine Coons. 

I choose a piece of patterned paper to go on the bottom half of the A2 note card base, then attached the stamped piece with foam tape.

Using a die from the Mama Elephant Polaroid die set, I die cut some speech bubbles - twice from white card and once from black card. I stamped a sentiment on one, then layered them together, with the black speech bubble offset slightly to create a shadow. I adhered this directly to the card, above the cats.

Finally, I added some Wink of Stella clear glitter to the cat accessories. 

I hope you like my birthday cat parade. Have a lovely day,
