For today's post, I made a cute friendship card featuring "Newton's Antics" by Newton's Nook Designs. I started off by die cutting the focal panel using a stitched circle die. I stamped the two kitties directly onto the panel and used my W0 and W2 Copic Markers to add a little shadowing underneath them. I used my MISTI stamping tool to stamp the sentiment in black ink and Simon Says Stamp "Fern" ink. I then colored the kitties using Copic Markers and fussy cut them out.

I die cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp "Green Leaf" cardstock using a stitched rectangle die. I used the My Favorite Things "Swiss Dots" stencil to create a polka dot background with Simon Says Stamp "Green Apple" ink. I then die cut two banners strips from Simon Says Stamp "Lemon Chiffon" cardstock using one of the banner dies from the Avery Elle "Dotted Dies" set. I stamped the little paw print on both banners with Simon Says Stamp "Sunshine" ink and then glued them behind the focal panel using Tombow Mono Multi Glue. I matted all of the layers onto a piece of pattern paper from the "Pint-Sized Patterns: Beachside" 6x6 paper pack from Lawn Fawn.
This card would be perfect for so many different types of occasions and it'd be such a sweet card to give to a special friend.
