Cat & Bird Card Box Sets

Good Morning all, i hope you had a good weekend.

Today im sharing 2 box sets ive made as gifts.  

The first one is using 2 different cats stamps from Zinski art and the second set is using the Crazy bird stamps.

I decorated the lid of my box with the cat stamps.

I first stamped the cat, doodled in a ground and coloured with wink of stella pens.  I lightly watercoloured blue background and green to the grass.  Die cut into a doublestitched rectangle.  Stamped greeting. Then matted onto black card and coloured card to match the topper colour.  

Im on a mission this year to use up some of the hundreds of coloured card ive amassed over the years!  

As above, the 2nd zinski art cat  stamp, again coloured the same way and matted onto purple card to match the wink of stella pens.

And below shows all cards i made for the set

This shows all 8 of the A6 (4x6) cards i made for the set.  The sentiment stamps came free with a magazine, but i like how they are all different fonts.  This set is for a friend who has a couple of cats and no birthday cards in the set as she always asks me separately to make those. 

and below on to the birdie set

Basically the same as the cat set just using the Tim Holtz crazy birds, as their is 6 different birds and i made 8 cards i used a couple of the birds twice.  This set does have a couple of birthday cards in it. 

Again i coloured them with wink of stella pens, shame the photos don't pick up the amazing sparkle they have. 

I kept the cards completely flat for ease of posting.
