Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m a little late getting this out so this is going to be a quick post to share this fun card!
This is a double Z Fold card….you can see the “Z” here:
When you open the card, this is what you see:
The stamp set used in this card is this cute stamp set called Love Cats. There are several cute images that are “purr-fect” for Valentine’s Day, but can also be easily used for anniversaries, or just for a friendship card.
I chose to use the Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog as there were several “heart” patterns to choose from that just seemed “purr-fect” for a Valentine Card.
I used my Stamparatus to stamp the black kitty so I could get really good ink coverage so the kitty was nice and black and not faded looking. One of the reasons I liked this stamp set is the playful kitty in the images. They reminded me of a black cat we had for almost 18 years named Shadow and he definitely was a dark black kitty, so trying to make this kitty look just like him. I actually inked up my stamp 3 times for good measure to get him nice and “inky” black.
