 How To:

1. First cut your Basic Black and Tangerine Tango 8 ½” x 11” cardstock to 8 ½” x 5 ½” Score and fold in half, making the front of the card 4 ¼” x 5 ½”.

2. I wanted ¼” of the base cardstock to show through all around my pattern layer, so subtract ½” from the both front measurements; 4 ¼” x 5 ½” goes down to 3 ¾” x 5” for the pattern piece.

3. Cut strips into ¾” x 5” for the next layer. I used 6 on my three cards, but you can cut as many as you like for however many layouts you want to use. If you want the banners a little longer you can cut the pattern layer smaller, or the cut the banner strip to hang over the edge of the card. Just make sure it will fit into an envelope without having to fold in the banner.

4. Cut banner triangles into the ends of the strips. For my card using four strips I lined up the chevron pattern how it was before it was cut and alternated which end I cut, this makes the eye move like crazy.

5. Adhere the bottom pattern layer with snail, adhere the banner strips with snail.

6. Cut your Whisper White cardstock to 3” x 3” squares, rub with the Embossing Buddy anti static bag.

7. Using a large piece of scrap paper underneath for each color Stampin’ Emboss powder used, stamp the Frightening Feline image in Versamark. Stamp directly up and down to prevent the whiskers from smearing.

8. Immediately pour the desired color of embossing powder over the image. Tap the back with your nail to remove any excess powder. After powdering, dump the remaining powder back into the container by cupping the scrap paper like a taco; tap the end to move it along.

9. Once you have stamped and powdered all the cats you’ll need, heat emboss with the Heat Tool. Use tweezers to hold the image at the corners. Watch carefully so you don’t overheat and curl the edges.
10. Add bling! I used Pumpkin Pie buttons from the Brights Designer Buttons with Linen Thread and Glue Dots, a couple Basic Glimmer Brads with my trusty Paper Piercer, and cut out two cats on one card using my super sharp Paper Snips and popped all of the cats up on Stampin Dimensionals.

 11. This card would be easy to ‘kick up a notch’ by tying ribbon around the banner strip or using even more colors and patterns from the Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP. Have fun!
