Celebrating Teachers & Remembering a Special Friend
The papers I used for both the card and layouts were fun, fun, fun. Lots of details, great colors, and the best part (my favorite part) -- the paper is double-sided! One thing I immediately noticed about the paper was the different personalities of the cats ... I saw alittle bit of my Neko in each one of them. The paper itself is full of personality.
So onto the details .... the subject Kitty is my childhood Neko-Chan (Japanese translation for kitten). The patterned paper was: Basic Grey Max & Whiskers; Lightening/Max 2450 & Gannett/Max 2455), Reminise Stickers - Cat, Mini-Alphas - cream. A 1" circle punch & notebook-like punch was used on the card. Embellishments: Ribbon (available at Paper Pals), glue dots, .03 black pen, and metal frame (from Paper Pals). I had fun twisting the ribbon and trying something other then just keeping it flat on the card/layout. To keep some of the 'twisties' in line I add a glue dot.
