Birthday Cake Cat

Hi there,

it's time for a new challenge over at Moving along with the Times and the topic is Birthday Cake. I would like to show you this adorable Slider Card that I created for my husband's birthday:

  • cut out the Miss Kate Cuttables Birthday Cake from watercolor paper and color the pieces with Distress Ink (Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Ground Espresso, Gathered Twigs, Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough) and a Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • add some Pico Embellisher (Shimmer) to the frosting of the cake
  • stamp the cute cat from the Mama Elephant Lunar Animals set with Versafine (Smokey Gray) onto watercolor paper and color the image with Distress Markers (Hickory Smoke, Tattered Rose) and a damp watercolor brush
  • add highlights to the eyes and the nose with a white gel pen
  • create a background on a stitched panel of watercolor paper using Distress Markers (Pumice Stone, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers), the Distress Marker Spritzer and water from a Mini Mister
  • apply Distress Ink (Peacock Feathers) through the Echo Park Mini Dot stencil
  • cut out a slider slot from the background panel using one of the Lawn Fawn Slide on over dies
  • assemble the slider using foam tape and a little handle cut from turquoise cardstock
  • cut out the CUTplorations Birthday Word die from black cardstock and cover the letters with Pico Embellisher (Shimmer)
  • add the first part of the sentiment with the help of the Dymo Label Maker
  • mat the panel onto a piece of silver glitter cardstock before adhering it to a white cardbase
  • add a little glitter heart cut with one of the dies from the My Favorite Things Hip Clips set to the slider handle
