Cat ATC Cards

These are my contribution to an ATC swap I did recently. Had to make 5 cards with a cat theme.
Had no preset idea of design when I started but they just developed as I used materials at hand. Pictures from back of a calender, used stamping, collage, ribbon and cat quips from a page of stickers I found at the bottom of the craft box. Was an enjoyable project to do.

Chocolate Rules book

Chocolate Rules book.
Every one loves chocolate and this card included a couple of chocs taped to the insides with a collection of funny chocolate quotes.
Saw original idea on SCS but made mine smaller with quotes just found on the net.
Has a belly band to hold it closed decorated with a velum flower.

Waterfall album

Waterfall Album
Pull tab and pages flip over to show photos. Found this neat tutorial at
The album is about 6" by 6" and was easy to make. I think heavier card for the pull tab would make it sturdier. Would hold up to 10 photos.

Little brag book

Matchbook Style Mini Album

Size is about 4" x 2 1/2"
6 pages with DP and cuttlebuged embellishments.
Thinking of making these to sell at a craft market as they are quick to make and look cute. Just need to get a heavy duty stapler that can handle 6 sheets of card.


Two Cards I made today. Farmer card is coloured in with water colour pencils. Ink got where it wasn't meant to so improvised, cut of a corner and folded over a piece of card as if it was meant to be like that. Turning a mistake into a positve. Floral card also coloured in water colours. Inspired by a card I saw in SCS
