Kitty Scalloped Circle card

Saturday is my son's teacher's birthday. This is the card my son and I designed together. She loves cats so Bryce wanted to be sure it had a cat on it. :)

The adorable card shape is from Winter Woodland. While a lot of cartridges have scalloped circles on them, I really love this one! :) We created the card base on my Gypsy and sized it to 5". The circle layers are from Plantin Schoolbook measuring 4" and 3 3/4".

This adorable little kitty is an oldie but a goodie... from Doodlecharms. We sized it to 2 1/2". We placed a 1/2" heart (also from Doodlecharms) for the nose and added a little scrap under the nose. We also added the little triangles for the ears. Bryce placed the kitty on an Action Wobble. So cute! :)

The adorable red and white polka dot paper is from Echo Park's Dots and Stripes pad. I placed the small polka dots above the scalloped border trim and large polka dots beneath it.

I added the sentiment stamp from Hero Arts' Big Hugs set. I curved the sentiment on my blog to mimic the curve on the card front. I couldn't help but add some doodled stitch lines using my Gelly Roll pen.

A second stamp from the Hero Arts : Big Hugs set finished off the inside. My son loves this card and says he is sure his teacher will too. :)

This card is precious. His teacher will love it! I think that kitty's face is super cute. It would put a smile on my face if a student gave it to me.

What a cute card! Love it Cheryl. It may be an older cartridge, but it's a new image to me! I have doodlecharms and have only used a couple of the images from it. The card is just adorable; your son made a good choice!--Pat N.
