I am in love with this Stampin’ Up! Moonlight Silhouette Cat Punch card! Because this was featured as a tutorial on SplitCoastStampers I have left the format to match theirs, but with a bit more detail!
1. First, begin with a 3” circle of White glitter paper cut with a 3” circle framelit or punch. 2. Then use the punch to create a negative image (open space of a shape) Make sure and have the image in the proper orientation when punching) 3. This will leave a positive image (here a cat) and a negative (a cat which will look silhouetted against a moon) 4. Next, sponge lightly around the edges to add depth. Please see the video for tips on sponging without streaking and also how glimmer paper can also be changed color by spritzing.
5. Stamp the inside of the card with navy ink using the decorative stamp and sentiment. Attach. Remember to make your envelope pretty with the decorative stamp, too! 6. Stamp the navy cardfront with white craft ink using the decorative stamp and sentiment. The navy cardfront is cut at 5 1/8” x 3 7/8”. 7. Run adhesive around the back of the navy card front and attach the blue ribbon. Place a whitecardstock layer over the blue base. This is white layer is cut at 5.25” x 4”. Now attach the assembled cardfront to the base layers. 8. Place dimensional adhesive to the back of the punched “moon” 9. Position your punched shape on the cardfront. 10. Use a glue dot to make the blue ribbon “cinch” at the point where you are going to add the other ribbons. 11. Finally, attach the mini silver sequin trim using a glue dot. Tie a small bow using the silver ribbon. Attach the silver bow using another glue dot.
