1. Create an 11cm x 14cm peach landscape blank. Cut white card to 10cm x 13cm. Blend purple distress oxide inks from the top downwards. Apply darker distress oxide ink through a woven stencil. Stamp a sentiment and small hearts in brown ink near the centre of the card.

2. Follow the step-by-step below to make the kinetic element. Punch two holes in the inked panel, 1.5cm in from the sides and 2cm up from the bottom, then set with orange eyelets. Tie string between the eyelets, leaving the knot at the front – don’t make it too tight or the cat won’t move smoothly! Stamp a cat onto white and colour in, then die cut. Die cut an additional cat from white card. Sandwich the knot of the string between the two cats using wet glue, then hold firmly to dry.

3. Use a double layer of foam tape to adhere the panel to the greeting. Stamp a rug and assortment of smaller images, then colour with alcohol markers. Cut out using the coordinating dies. Arrange the smaller images in an arc around the sentiment, then add the rug so the cat sits on it. Apply Glossy Accents to the cat’s nose.
