Doodle all the way...

This month we were asked to choose a stamp from the line of doodle stamps that Serendipity carries. I completely fell in love with this cat. And we were also asked to use felt in the design some how!

Serendipity Stamp Cat (923B)
Cardstock in black and gray
White opaque ink
pink felt
hole punch
pink colored pencil
oval dies
oval scalloped dies
masking tape

1. Stamp cat on black cardstock and cut out with oval die, mat with larger oval in gray. Color over cat with colored pencil.

2. Cover the back of the felt with masking tape and cut out with scalloped oval.  Use hole punch to punch a hole in each scallop.  The tape isn't required but I find it gives the felt some stability so it doesn't fray.  Attach cat ovals to felt.

3. Stamp cats on black cardstock and mat with gray.  Draw a light black line in gray border.  Attach rhinestones to corners.  Attach oval to bottom right corner!
Great looking card, simple easy steps.  Check out the other great doodle and felt combos the design team came up with here:
