Cat Note Cards

It's Kim from Katydid Cards with you today.  First, a reminder to take advantage of the Freebie of the Day at the Miss Kate Cuttables store.  I decided to use the Cat Silhouette Set, in honor of International Cat Day earlier this month, to make a set of note cards in their own little gift box.

Here's the full set with the gift box in the back:

I made the cards and the box with card stock and note cards from Stampin' Up.  The cat silhouette is cut out of the red and the same silhouette was cut from black.  I placed the black cat in the cut out on the red and attached them to a mat of black.  Then I embossed it using the Square Lattice embossing folder.

To fill an empty corner, I cut a circle framed cat paw in crumb cake and placed it on a slightly larger circle of  black.

Here's a picture of the gift box in which the cards are stored.  I made this using a cut file in the Silhouette store.  It was actually intended as a box for a thick card, but I changed the dimensions to work with these note cards:

And here's an individual picture of one of the cards.  You can see the remaining cards on my blog, if you're interested.

Waste not, want not...I used the red cut out inside the note card for a cute little accent.

I know just who is getting these notes cards.  They will be purr-fect for her!

See you next month with another project!
