{The Cat's Pajamas Sneak Peek} Bounce Back

I'm back with another day of The Cat's Pajamas previews. Be sure to stop by the TCP blog to see a list of the Cat Pack participants who are showing you the Bounce Back set which features your favorite bunny. This time he happens to be a bit under the weather unfortunately.

I started out by making a "tissue" box cutting a rectangular shape box from patterned paper and then using the small oval shaped piece from the Circus Panels CutUps to cut an opening. I inserted a piece of real kleenex through the opening and folded it over. After coloring up the flu bunny image and adding a small bit of paper piecing for the scarf, I fussy cut it out and set it on top of the tissue box attaching both pieces to the background panel with dimensional dots. I added a sentiment flag and a scattering of buttons tied with twine some of which I matted with some left over dots from previous projects using Dots CutUps. It's the die that keeps on giving! I actually mailed this card to one of my husband's friends the day I finished photographing it as it seems that flu season may have already started.
