Welcome to our Valentine Blog Hop.

We both just love animals so here is one of the cards we created using some animal stamp sets.

Check at the end of the post for a matching envelope I made to go with this card.  Making my envelopes look pretty is so much fun.

Penny Black Cat Card directions:

Base card:  Cut a piece of  Neenah Classic Crest cardstock  4 1/4 x 11 inches, using my scoreboard, score at 5 1/5 inches and fold.  This makes a top folding card.

Using the Crate Paper Main Squeeze paper pack I picked out a cute background paper and cut it 4 x 5 1/4 inches.

I used my Misti to stamp the cat image from the Penny Black So Loved stamp set and the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

To cut out the rectangle I used the Lawn Fawn Large Dotted die.

I like to use Scotch removable tape to hold down my dies when cutting them out.  I use a Big shot to cut all my dies.

All cut and ready to start coloring.

I used Copic markers to color in my image.  I used the following colors:

  • Background – RV10
  • Ears – R30, R43
  • Heart – R30, R43, R46
  • Cat – E11, E13, E15

The best price I have found for Copic markers is at Blick Art Material Company.

I used the Signo white pen to add some little dots to the heart.

It is hard to tell from the photo but I used Clear Wink of Stella over the heart to give it some sparkle.

To give it some lift and dimension I used foam tape to the back of the colored image.

All finished and ready to send.  Thank you for joining us while we made this cute little valentine card.
