Cat's Pajamas Birthday Card

I have been known to use this old expression about the Cat's Pajamas and so when I found this stamp by Stampendous at a stamp show, I just had to buy it. I saw a card in Pinterestland that showed this idea of cutting away the top layer to reveal the same stamp below and decided to try it with this stamp and some stitched star dies from Lil' Inker. I stamped the Cat's PJ's stamp twice on two pieces of white cardstock. Then I cut two stars out of one of the pieces and paper pieced the cat's pajamas. I used a thin black marker to "stitch" around the edge of the top piece and attached it with pop dots over the second stamped white piece. I attached the completed card front to a teal card.


The set of stitched dies from Lil' Inker has a matching set of stamps, so I stamped the inside with a perfect sentiment and added one more stitched star to the inside of the card. I will be teaching this card in the classes I teach in my home.

I am entering this card in the birthday celebration at Simon Says Stamp, the humor challenge at Crafty Gals Corner and the Layers and Dimension challenge at Virginia's View.

This is soooo adorable and funny! Love the way you did the sentiment through the die cut stars! That's super cool! You should totally link this up with the Crafty Gals Corner humorous challenge going on!
