Funny Persian Cat Birthday Card
This was supposed to be a Father's Day card, but as I got into it, I realized Sir Cat was the perfect birthday card for a cat loving male friend.
The focal point is a big, thick, plastic sticker I found in the sale bin at my favorite outlet shop. I stuck it on card stock and cut a mat around it. The image dominates so I kept the rest of the design simple. A fleur de lys charm hangs from a silk cord on the side.
Hint—to keep cord tips like this from fraying, use a drop of Fray Check on each end.
