Giordano kitten card ♥

Jeg har ingen anelse om hvor disse flotte diecut-hengslene kommer fra ~ om noen vet, værsåsnill og fortell! Tror jeg kjøpte dem for 5-6 år siden på forumet ~ da jeg var 'fersk' i gamet :)

This charming image comes from the Giordano's Puppies and Kittens CD, wich I got here from Joanna Sheen. The awesome diecut hinges are a mystery to me ~ have no clue where they come from (gotten on a forum ages ago) and if someone knows, please do let me know, 'cause I'd like to find & buy the die for theese ~ if they still exist :)

I'm entering theese challenges:
Cropstop ch. #54. A bit Old you said? ~ distressed, vintage or shabby chic.
Joanna Sheens challenge for January ~ Celebrations (stretching the interpetation 
a wee bit with no sentiment! But the card is to be used for all such occasions :)
The Squirrel & the Fox #9. Critters ~ paws or claws, feathers or fur!
The Crazy Challenge ~ Tic, Tac, Toe ~ Ribbon/Embossing/Diecut.
Truly Scrumptious #72. Something Forgotten ~ the diecuts!
Tuesday Throwdown #81. Neutral Colors ~ Green & brown tones.
UnstampaBelles Challenge #7. Anything Goes (no stamps!)
Pile It On #3. Fuzzy Friends theme.

Stamps/Images: The kitten image is printed out from the Joanna Sheen CD-Rom 'Giordano Puppies and Kittens'.
Bazzill cardstocks
Embellishments/Tools: Panduro Hobby - velvet selfadhesive ribbon. The hinges diecuts are as I said - unknown, and I think the brads are from Doodlebug. I've used Spellbinder Nestabilities 'Petite Scalloped Circle Large S4115' on the card, and then embossed it with the DoCrafts Emb.folder 5X7 - ME TO YOU - primrose background. The card is distressed with cats eye chalks & tim holtz distress inks.


  1. Well you certainly set me off on a mission. I have searched high and low and cannot find anything remotely close to those wonderful hinges.
    If you ever do find out...I'd love to know.
    Your card is just spectacular and I can't say enough about the way you've showcased that adorable vintage image. Nicely done!

    Thank you SO much for playing along with us at The Squirrel & The Fox for our challenge.
    Good luck to you and we hope you come back next week to play along again.
