Big Top Birthday Iris Folding Cat Card

Boy, how's that for a title?  Got you wondering? 

Well, Big Top Birthday is the name of the gorgeous bright Designer Series Paper I have used in a birthday card for a cat-loving family member, and Iris Folding is the technique by which I have shown off this cheerful paper.

The base card is Certainly Celery with a layer of Tempting Turquoise. The cat is cut from Whisper White card, onto which the Iris Folding has been attached - you do all these lovely layers from the back. I have also used here Pacific Point ink for the greeting and some flower punches for the cute flower at his neck.

I did need a couple more colours so I added some more DSP from my collection - Pear Pizzazz Patterns Stack print, and some scraps from a retired pack of DSP which had very similar cheerful colours.

I just love how bright and cheery he came up, and I understand the birthday girl did too!

If you're away over the Easter long weekend, or just taking a break at home, I hope you are having a very relaxing, safe & enjoyable time with your family. Catch you again soon!
