When I first saw this cat image from the Crafty Secrets booklet "Wacky & Wonderful Vintage Images," I immediately thought of my hubby's BIL Tom, who performs with his friend Terry in a Michigan folk singing duo called "The New Town Cryers." I was half way through making this birthday card for him when "The Mew Town Cryers" came to me. I've been giggling ever since. My hubby cracked up too. It's pretty funny that "Tom and Jerry" would work too. Hmmmm, perhaps on the inside of the card . . . . :o)
No stamps were used on this card. After cutting out the window, I ran the Confetti Tan cardstock through my Big Kick machine using the Fiskars texture plate called Music Notes. I applied the Encore Bronze metallic pad direct-to-paper to the raised images, and then used several markers with the spritzer tool for more dimension and texture. The dry embossed panel is up on dimensionals.
The sentiment is a custom rub-on transfer I created on my computer. See this thread for more information on how to make these: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...light=transfer I applied the Encore Bronze pad to the edges of the sentiment and then heat embossed it entirely with Versamark and clear EP.
The finished card measures 5 1/4 inches square.

Linda, this is too dog gone cute! I love the Fiskers background and how you gave it so much dimension and texture. You must have stored your creativity for years, and look how it just comes out of you! This card is so much fun. I can see you giggling away.

Still looking for the pony.
