Today we continue the ALL MY LOVE Designer Series Paper Showcase and add the PRETTY KITTY stamp set. This card will be a Valentine for a writer friend in Texas. She loves cats so this card is perfect for her! I was inspired by THIS card on Etsy. I knew I wanted to incorporate the doily in some form so her card gave me layout idea. As you'll see, I used her elements but broke them up.

Here's what you'll need to CAS this card:

Pretty Kitty stamp set

Stitched Shapes Framelits Die Set

All My Love DSP
     1 piece 4" x 5-1/4" pattern
     1 piece 3-1/2" square (1/2 circle mat for doily)
     1 piece 3/4" x 2-1/4" (banner mat)
     1 small heart cut from the pattern paper

     Flirty Flamingo card base 4-1/4" x 5-1/2"
     Whisper White
          1 piece 3" square (circle for cat)
          1 piece 1" x 2" (sentiment)

Additional items:
     Memento Black ink
     Dazzling Diamonds
     Multi-Purpose Liquid glue
     Flirty Flamingo Light/ Dark Stampin' Blends
     Pearlized Doily (cut in 1/2)
     Banner Triple Punch
    Whisper White Flax Ribbon

Cut one of the small hearts from the DSP. I used a red one as that color seems to show up better under the Dazzling Diamonds than the pink. Cover the image with glue then coat with Dazzling Diamonds. Set aside to dry.

Trim the banner V in the ribbon then either with scissors or the Banner Triple Punch, repeat with the piece noted above for the banner mat. Set aside

Using the largest Circle from the stitched framelits set, cut one from a coordinating DSP (or card stock) Then, cut the circle in 1/2. Layer with the 1/2 of Pearlized Doily.

To coat intricate dies like the doily, I put a small puddle of glue on my Silicone Craft Sheet then apply the glue to the piece with a cotton swab.

Use the 2nd largest circle and white card stock to the mat for your image. After you've cut this circle, dust the edge with one of the Flirty Flamingo.  Stamp your image. I used the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends for the bow/ tongue and the Lighter tone for the ears. Adhere to the 1/2 circle, doily mat.

Adhere your DSP mat to the front of your card, then add your image matted piece and the banner pieces. Use a Glue Dot or the Multi-Purpose glue to add the heart.

Stamp your image on the small rectangle then dust the edge with Flirty Flamingo before applying to the bottom right corner.
