Curious Cats Shaker Card By Jil Lebel



Hello Ai Fans!!

I am really honored to be joining the Art Impressions design team!  This is my first post & I really hope you'll keep coming back each week to see what I have to share with you. 




I used my Distress Inks to watercolor the Purrr-thday Set (SKU #4568) or with Dies(SKU#4829). It's a back & front set. I decided to attach the back sides of the cats to the front. 

Here is a closer look at the cats themselves.




  I wanted them to be looking inside the window at a cupcake . The cupcake is from the Big Birthday Wishes Set (SKU # SC0794) that used to be only available at Michael's stores.  You can now get it from the Ai website!




When the card is open you can see all of their curious little faces.




Just in case you were wondering, this card is cat approved!

This is a really fun set to have because you can come up with tons of ways to color the cats. I know I'll come back to it many more times. Thanks, Jil
