Welcome! Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is featuring the brand new The Cat's Meow Stamp Set and coordinating dies! I paired the awesome big border image from The Cat's Meow with greetings and balloons from Celebration Balloons for this celebration greeting card.
The big cat border from the The Cat's Meow Stamp Set and the balloons from the Celebration Balloons Stamp Set were stamped on Neenah Smooth White Cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink, colored with Copic Markers, and die cut with the coordinating The Cat's Meow dies and Celebration Balloons dies.
For the background, Candied Apple Distress Ink and Dried Marigold Distress Ink were applied to Bristol Smooth Cardstock with a Mini Ink Blending Tool, spritzed with water from a Distress Sprayer and blotted dry with a paper towel. Balloon strings were drawn with the Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen and a ruler. I love the glittery "strings" and how they don't overpower the design.
The images were adhered to the background and "yay" from The Cat's Meow Stamp Set was stamped with Candied Apple Distress Ink. The balloons were colored with a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and finished with a layer of Glossy Accents.
The front was finished with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh gold mini star confetti and rounded corners.
The inside of the card was stamped with another greeting from the Celebration Balloons Stamp Set.
