Why I Love Fluffles...
Fluffles is my hero. I adore Fluffles and would own most of the Fluffles stamps if I did not have to work on a budget. This is my only Fluffles holiday stamp and I love it. Being a cat owner, I was terrified the first Christmas that I took Book home and she saw a Christmas tree. Luckily she had no interest in it or in playing with ornaments that were not hanging right at kitty nose level.
I found this layout in the Beautiful Cards... to make and send with love magazine from 2007 (issue 18, p. 42) and I had to use it. The original is by Katina Killey. I replaced the original cat image with Fluffles and chose to cut out an extra fluffles and star to give it a little more dimension. I coloured the image with my Staedler fineliner markers, then went over the ornaments and star with my Stardust pen. The red ornaments got covered over with a red glaze pen also for a bit more dimension.
I finished things off with MM ornament brads, a black pen, and some ribbon. And voila!
The card forms an A shape when it is standing, the back part wider than the front and just in plain white.
More cards to come soon!
Enjoy the weekend!
