I’ve been making lots of fun background papers using Distress and Distress Oxide inks lately, and the dies sets I’ve used today are perfect to pair with a somewhat ‘busy’ background as they still stand out.
There is nothing too complicated with this card. I just layered the Distress Ink paper on black and green cardstock and adhered it to my card base. I then cut the dies in single layers in the colors shown. For the eyes I cut a small scrap of cardstock in the color I selected and glued it to the back of the die cuts for the eyes and mouth. The grass strip was adhered along the bottom only so I could tuck parts of the cats behind the grass for a more realistic look.
