This super simple Clever Cat card is so much fun! The Clever Cats Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! is the purr-fect set for your twitching hour projects including cards, treats for your tricks-or-treaters, and bags.
The best part of this card is how easy it was to put together! I used Card Sketch #13 from my Card Sketch Library (how appropriate for a Halloween Card, right? 😄) and then used the free Penguin Playmates Sale-A-Bration Paper for a bit of contrast. The fun thing about this stamp set is that if you replace the jack-o-latern with another image, this card could easily work for another occasion! How about putting him on a cake and make a fun birthday card? The ideas are endless!
