I started by stamping my kitty from Oak Tree's Cat-titude stamp set onto Illustration paper with Momento Tuxedo Black ink.

For the Kitty
Then I colored the kitty in using Spectrum Noir Alcohol ink markers. I used TN1 for the face and tummy areas and around those edges I blended it with GB2. For the kitty's stripes, I used TN3 and then TN5. I also blended a little bit of FS9 in between the whiskers and mouth to create a muzzle. 

Then I applied hot pink chalk using tiny circular motions for the cheeks and then I used a white opaque pen to add dots to the cheeks.

Lastly, I added I glued rhinestone bows to both her ears using Diamond Glaze. and also applied a small dot between her whiskers to make her nose.


I used the Sizzix Fip-it Cards #2 for my base and panels. For the center flap, I cut a 2.5"square with the same paper I used for the base. 


For quick and easy placement, I ran my pieces through my Xyron Creative Station with a 9" permanent adhesive refill cartridge. 

Then simply peeled and stuck into place. I added dimension to my kitty by applying her to a sheet of foam and then running her back through my Xyron, this time my 3" Sticker Maker

 I also cut another 2.5" square for the back of the flap using the same patterned paper as one of my side panels.


Finally, I added a simple bow and a few enamel dots to even out all four corners of my card.

And here is my finished card...
