My Kitty Love Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing My Kitty Love Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using the New Release Kitty Love with the Snow Globe Bundle!

The Details of My Kitty Love Card

For my card, I decided to combine the Snow Globe Bundle with the Kitty Love stamp since the kitty fits so perfectly in the snow globe! I used Microsoft Word to size and insert the kitty into the globe. In addition, I used Word to add Happy Valentine’s Day to the plaque on the base.

I haven’t coloured a snow globe before and wanted to challenge myself. So, I used the 3.0 Mini Class Bundle from Kit and Clowder as a reference and used my Copic markers to colour the image. It was a lot of fun getting the shine on the glass! Once it was coloured, I added Glossy Accents to the plaque on the globe base and Stickles to all the hearts.

I decided to use the French Kiss Doodlebug Paper since it had hearts, envelopes, and happy mail on it. Perfect for my card! To ground the snow globe, I used a solid piece of red paper that was already embossed with hearts to add to my Valentine theme.

Next, I added some die cut hearts in opposite corners for balance. A die cut glassine envelope with die cut hearts inside and an adhesive-backed heart to seal it was added to mirror the letters in the mailbox. 

For embellishments, I used a piece of white lace trim and white resin hearts.
