"Red, White and Blue" Americana Loveleigh Kitty Slimline Cards by Val

Happy 4th of July Weekend Creative Friends


"Red, White and Blue"
Americana Loveleigh Kitty
Slimline Cards
by Val
 
 
My new Americana Loveleigh Kitty July release is the star of LeighSBDesigner Val's "Red, White and Blue" themed slimline cards today!
 
 
 Americana Kitty is looking so adorable and patriotic in these 2 makes where Val alternated her colour palette.
 

 For her first card Val used Promarkers to colour Americana Kitty with red stripes and did his upper body and hat band in blue and a white gel pen to highlight his eyes.  She made a white folded card from heavy weight cardstock and cut a mat panel from Hobby Craft red cardstock.  She embellished the top right and bottom left corners with white self-adhesive pearls.
 
 
 
For her 2nd card Val did the opposite and coloured Americana Kitty with blue stripes with his upper body and hat band in red and used a white gel pen to highlight his eyes.  She made a white folded card from heavy weight cardstock and cut a mat panel from Hobby Craft blue cardstock.  She then embellished the top right and bottom left corners with blue self-adhesive pearls.
 
Shop Americana Kitty on release sale at my new website store through July 10th midnight pacific!

"USA" Americana Loveleigh Kitty Slimline Card by Leigh

Happy 4th of July Weekend Creative Friends


"USA"
Americana Loveleigh Kitty
Slimline Card
by Leigh
 
My new Americana Loveleigh Kitty July release is the star of my fun slimline card today!  I had lots of fun colouring Americana Kitty in vintage colours and paired him up with the contemporary patterned paper that makes my 4th of July make both nostalgic and bright and bold.
 
 
I fussy cut out Americana Kitty with my Silhouette Cameo 5 electronic cutting machine with an offset white border to make him pop nicely against the background.
 
 
I applied Crystal Stickles glitter to all the white stripes on his hat and body as well as his eyebrows, mustache, beard and his cute fluffy tail and gold glitter to all the stars for lots of pretty sparkle.
 
 
 The "USA" sentiment is cut from a sheet of patterned paper which I also edged with glitter glue.
 
 
I cut the background patterned paper panel 1/4 inch smaller than my slimline card, which I made from a sheet of heavy weight white cardstock, and adhered it to the card with glue.  I then completed my fun card by mounting Americana Kitty and the sentiment to the card with foam tape for some fun dimension and embellished 3 of the corners with self-adhesive star gems.
