One Cool Cat!


Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is Just for Kids (make cards created especially for the kiddos)!  

This card features Cool Cat Digi from Hetty ClareI split the image in Cricut DS and made a pop up panel to make it look like the kitty was further back and it gives the card dimension!  I placed the gift on top of Design paper from Polkadoodles.  The "happy" die is from Cricut Celebrations and cut from DCWV Shimmer Stack Cardstock.  

On the bottom layer with that cute kitty is the "birthday" part of the sentiment.  It was flattened onto the card using Cricut DS and printed.
