Sylvester the Cat Card

When I saw this card by Ellen Kemper at Blinkin', Thinkin' & Inkin' I fell in love with the cat face.  Immediately, it made me think of the cartoon character, Sylvester the cat.  If you enjoy making characters using punched shapes, you should definitely check out her blog!

For an A2 sized card I cut one each of:

5 1/2 x 4 1/4 pink cardstock
5 1/4 x 4 black cardstock
2 1/2 x 4 1/4 white cardstock
2 1/4 x 4 pink cardstock
2 1/2 square of pink cardstock
2 3/8 square of black cardstock

The white eyes and pink nose were cut using the George cartridge and Design Studio.  I placed a 2 3/8" square on the mat in DS and sized the heart and oval to the size I wanted.

Using my Crop-o-dile, I punched the holes in the white heart to form the eye opening and then snipped off the tip of the heart.  The cat's whiskers were done with a white Signo gel pen.  The pink and black tiger striped ribbon is from Ribbons and Bows, Oh, My!
