Lisa's Design Team Cat Hop

Today our design team will be featuring the newest cats file. A bunch of ornery cats all looking to get into some kind of mischief. But, then what cats don’t, right?

The team was asked to use the cats to create a card, that was more than just the traditional half fold card. I think you wlll like what the team has come up with this week.

The file we used can be found here, (http://www.scrappingwithlisadesigns.com/item_44/Cats.htm)

I used two of the 5 cats in the files from Lisa.  Here are my little darlings for my card(Sabrina and Potsie). I used stickles on them and some googlie eyes.
I decided to make a popup card with them, well because Cats just love to hide and then pop out unexpectedly.  

I used a 12x12 sheet Brown Bo Bunny dot paper. Made 9 scores starting at center and each was a half inch apart.  Glued the folds, and then proceeded to create my scene:
   Using my cricut I cut the flowers, grass, yarn balls, mushrooms and the mouse.    I used Martha Stewart glitter pens on the flowers and mushrooms and glaze pens on the mouse's eye and nose.  I added some bling rhinestones to the daisy flowers.    I used some cat paper and sticker from Doodlebug for my sentiment.  This was my first pop up card.

When you close the card, Sabrina's head still peeks out with one of the flowers and Potsie's tail.  I tied a blue dotted ribbon to hold it shut until the recipient unties it.
