Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #500 | Cat Birthday Card by Jennifer Jackson | Newton Loves Boxes Stamp Set, Newton Loves Cake Stamp Set and Pawprints Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
If you are anything like me, I never have enough birthday cards on hand so I was excited to play along with the challenge theme of BIRTHDAY! I grabbed the one of my favorite kitty stamps from the Newton Loves Boxes Stamp Set to create a fun birthday card. I colored the image of the kitty in the stack of cardboard boxes using copic markers. This set doesn't have a birthday hat in it so I grabbed one from the Newton Loves Cake Stamp Set to add onto the kitties head! The images were cut out using the coordinating Newton Loves Boxes Die Set and Newton Loves Cake Die Set.

For the card, I kept it simple, using our Pawprints Stencil with orange and yellow distress inks over the white card base to create a fun cat themed background pattern. Then I added a strip of yellow cardstock across the bottom and added the sentiment from the Newton Loves Boxes Stamp Set. A little bit of white bakers twine is the finishing touch! This card was so simple to make and will be great to have on hand for a birthday greeting for any cat lover!
