I started by punching out the cat from the Designer Paper. You can either trim off the little bit of very vanilla left from the punch or you can trim that off with your snips. I added lemon-lime twist ink to the eyes using Wink of Stella and the ink from the top of my ink pad.
I then took the smokey slate piece and put into the Brick Wall embossing folder and embossed with the Big Shot.
I then switched to my magnetic plate on the Big Shot and die cut the banner in Very Vanilla from the Cupcake Cutouts dies.
Next I turned to stamping the sentiment from the Spooky Cat stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink onto the diecut banner.
Using a wedge of Stampin' Sponge I sponged around the banner with Basic Gray and then lightly sponged over the entire banner. The Cupcake Cutouts banner die also scores the banner so you can fold and create some dimension to the banner. I used my bone folder to fold the banner on the score lines. I also sponged over the brick wall embossed piece.
Then I began putting the card together. I added the large DSP (Designer Series Paper) piece to the Very Vanilla Thick Card base. Next I added the 3x3 moon piece to the Basic Black piece. Using Fast Fuse I added the brick wall at the base of the moon piece, leaving a small bit of black showing. Add this piece to the card front.
I put dimensionals on the back of the punched out cat and added it to the top of the wall.
Using my bone folder I ran it along one end of the banner and then flipped the banner over and did the same to the other end. This creates a little rise in the middle of the banner. I put a dimensional under the banner at the lowest point and fast fuse on the ends to attach to the wall.
Black Rhinestones on either end of the sentiment finishes off the card.
