Law of Cat

Hello.  Welcome.  The challenge over at Dies R Us is shaped cards, so I decided it was time for another outing with the Sizzix Fancy Chair die.  This comes with a matching embossing folder and is a really fun die.  It's quite nice to have a free standing chair, and since Lost Coast have a cat event going on, I decided to fill my chair with a cat.  A happy cat, of course......

How cool is that??!!!  I cut the chair from corrugated card, which gets compressed as it is cut, so gives a nice strong card front, but remains quite light.  I embossed with the matching folder and tinted with Frayed Burlap distress ink.  I embossed some hot pink card and fussy cut the 'upholstery'.  I highlighted some details with a red pen and added some lace to the edge of the cushion.  Went a bit crazy with the pearls!!!   Most of the embossed 'buttons' are covered by the cat so only two pearls on the chair back, so I decided to embellish the chair arms as well.  

The cat is Lost Coast's Happy Cat, stamped wth black archival ink and fussy cut.  I stamped the sentiment with Staz On ink on shrink plastic.  It reads

'she decided to schedule some time each day to be 
overwhelmed by the sheer amazingness of it all'

She is a very wise cat.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
