As soon as Jezebel saw Valentine Kitty from Aurora Wings, she HAD to have her for Daddy's Valentine. Of course I agreed she'd be just PURRRFECT. What a cutie! I had recently seen the instructions for a Pop-Up Box Card on Splitcoast Stampers and thought that might be a fun one to try.
This is the second time I colored her because the first one just didn't fly with Jezzie. She fancies herself a white kitty because she thinks they are the boofiest (most beautiful) of all.
Have to admit, my experimentation at coloring her with a combo of Copics and pencils to approximate her natural markings were not the best, but she was utterly HORRIFIED that I would even consider it. "I look like a BOY, Mommy", (Yeah, she kinda did), she cried, "give that one to Goliath." "But Goliath has short hair, Jezzie," I countered. "Well, he'd be boofier with LONG hair, like me", she said, "And while you're at it, cover over that sentiment because Daddy is MINE!" Yes, ma'am! (She's the ultimate "Daddy's Girl" for sure!)
I did a bit of fussy cutting around the hearts a Valentine Kitty's feet in order for her to fit in the box. Then printed her again, cut just the hearts and attached it to the second cross piece inside the box so more would show from behind her. Finally, the floating heart is attached with acetate so it sort of flutters in the back, and I flipped, printed the image again and added "Daddy" to one of the hearts for the front flap.
The card folds flat but a tiny bit of the kitty shows out the top. Pretty sure I can still find an envie, though. All the sweet Dp's are from the 6x6 Fourteen pack by Crate Paper.
Now, if you don't already know, there's a 400 Member Celebration Event going on TODAY on the Aurora Wings Facebook Group with loads of fun and contest questions going on all day long. Join us for a chance to win some amazing Aurora Wings images.
I'm adding this to the Simon Says Monday Love Notes challenge, the Simon Says Wednesday Have a Heart challenge, the Digi Galore Valentine Challenge, and the Outlawz Alcohol Markers Valentine/Love Challenge.
