Hello and thanks for stopping by to check out today’s new papercraft project. If you’ve ever fallen into a design or creating rut, then you may be able to relate with this project. Needing to create a project for this challenge, I took out the products and stared at them for a while, lol, then made a few die cuts. Nothing was happening for me as far as forming a design until I noticed my oldest son had made his way into my studio and left a craft-tastrophe. Maybe I should call it a cat-astrophe!
Design help from my son

measurements for this project
Laying on the floor beside my craft cart was a litter of cats, paper cats! My oldest son, Trip, likes to use my punches and I encourage him to play with my “safe” craft supplies when he feels the urge. I keep a small pack of retired papers near the punches for this exact reason. Since he went to the trouble of punching so many lovely cats, it occurred to me that what my design needed was a more prominent focal point and Trip’s cat punch would be perfect.
Under the punched cat is a die cut from Stained Glass Thinlits, which is layered over a stamped cluster of roses from Painted Glass stamp set. There’s a length of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon under the sentiment and some adhesive backed pearls spread around the design. Overall, it’s a sweet and pretty card and I’m thankful to have had the design help from my son.
Here is a list of supplies I used to make this card project. Links are here that you can click to get product info and purchase items, at no additional cost to you, as well. Thank you for your support with your purchase.
Having more ways to create a focal point on your project can make a project work for you. I hope you like this project and will come back to visit often! Thanks for stopping by today.
