You're Special Card

I just recently got the Meow Cricut Lite Cartridge. It has some adorable images. I decided to start with the very first image on the cartridge this cat in a boot. I cut the cat and all its layers at 3 1/2". I rant the boot through the Cuttlebug and embossed it with the Tiny Mosaics folder. I started with a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" white card stock base. I added a blue mat from the same card stock as the boot cut at 4" X 5 1/4". I used the Bubblegum Stripes cartridge and printed out a rectangle with the striped pattern and cut it down to 3 3/4" X 5". I then cut two smaller rectangles that I flooded with a solid orange and another flooded with the black multi colored circle patterned. I cut the orange rectangle down to 3 3/4" X 1 3/4" and the black patterned paper cut down to 3 3/4" X 1 1/2". I used a Martha Stewart  punch to punch a bubble like border and adhered these to the card. I added some lime green ribbon to the top of these two pieces and added my cat image with some foam dots. Finally I stamped my sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added two blue buttons that I tied a piece orange floss in a knot. Thanks for visiting.
