Wino Kitty How To

You all had several clever ideas for the wino cat card that made me chuckle so I made another cat and snapped a photo for the how to.

Left columns shows punches and right column shows what  each one looks like after you follow my directions below.

Head - large oval - using temporary adhesive (dotto) stick on a scrap and reinsert into large oval punch moving so that you are snipping just a little off horizontally (see photo)

Body - word window - with scissors snip diagonally on both sides (see photo)

Ears - small  Heart to Heart (2)

Hind legs - narrow Heart to Heart - trimmed with scissors (see photo)

Arms - wide Heart to Heart - punched next to hole and then again to get the narrow arms

Feet aren't shown in photo - small Heart to Heart cut in 1/2

Collar - Chain link - which is the word window punched around the slot punch hole - then repunched with the word window. - but since I stuck in up so close under the head - you could just use a strip of paper.

Cat was punched from whisper white and sponged with soft suede
Face and claws drawn on with thin marker

Wine glass from Cheers to You.

And here is a Super Bowl Trophy - which is what the cat looks like when all you have done is stick the head on the body.

Now if I can just put a cup of coffee in his hand, I'll be all set.

Thanks for the tut!

Another fab creation - and I have several friends who are wine lovers and would make the purrrrrfect birthday cards for them. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, I just got a better idea! Not better than the cat but better than putting a coffee in his hand. I have to wait until my order gets here on Monday, but I have an idea for a swap, will share when I make it.
