Love Cats Tunnel Card

If you saw my Seaside Bay card on Saturday (click here), I said I’d share another card with an extra layer. Well here it is!

The Love Cats stamp set and the Dandy Designs DSP (Level 2 SAB item) are perfect for this fun tunnel card. The cats are stamped in Petal Pink, but before stamping onto Basic White card, I inked up the zigzag stamp from the Stitchery stamp set and stamped it with Calypso Coral ink directly onto the cat image then stamped the cat onto the white card. This is called the Kissing technique, kissing the two stamps together, and can be really effective. Once I stamped the 3 cats, I fussy cut them with Paper Snips.

The sentiment inside the tunnel is from the Charming Sentiments Bundle.

Here is how it looks from the top, once constructed and it folds flat to fit into our C6 envelope!

On the back of the card, I used the die cut circles from the front design, plus the Alphabet A La Mode dies (with Adhesive Sheet on the back of the card before cutting) and the ‘birthday’ from the Art Gallery stamp set. I also used a Sponge Dauber to add some ink around the White circle.

Don’t these cats look awesome in this tunnel – just like cats really are playing!
