Handmade Valentine's Card with Red, Black and Gray

Hello and welcome!

I decided to join in Hero Arts Stay Crafty challenge this month and their January theme is "Hearts". These cute images are actually part of a Christmas set, but when I purchased the set I intended to use these cats on a love/valentines themed card. I just never got around to doing it until now :-)  

The stamp set is called Meowy Christmas and there is also a matching die set available (separately). Unfortunately they are no longer available directly from Hero Arts, so I linked to Amazon. 

I started out by stamping the images on Neenah 80lb paper using Memento ink. The chair was  stamped  again on the red dotted paper to paper piece. Cats were colored with Copic markers and fussy cut using my Cutterbee scissors. (I do have the matching dies but wanted a closer cut for today's card.)

Using a circle die cut as a mask, I inked up the white card stock panel using Pumice Stone Distress Oxide ink. Removed the mask, stamped the little outline hearts (this is an ancient stamp from Stampin Up), then adhered the images.     

The tiny solid red hearts were die cut (these tiny dies are included in Avery Elle's Hearts Frame die set). I added the sentiment and a strip of striped black and white patterned paper for some interest and then the button where I tied a bow using natural jute twine

The sentiment is part of this Hero Arts stamp kit from a couple of years ago, but it's no longer available. I love the hand written font!

I do admire this kitty love card! The design is elegant and understated, yet has a lot going on. The paper pieced chair looks fabulous and the hearts are perfect for these love struck kitties. The colour palette is gorgeous, Ellibelle. Thank you for sharing your lovely project at the Path of Positivity challenge. xx
