Quilled Cat - Father's Day Card

June already! Father's Day is on the horizon. Perhaps your dad is a cool dude... well, so are most cats pretty cool, or at least they give the impression they think they are! This quilled fellow, inspired by a rubber stamp I saw ages ago, is no exception.

Dare I say the glowing, foxy sunglasses give him a bit of personality? Golden metallic paper and trimmed down punchees from a standard hole puncher do the deed.

Russet brown eyelash yarn for the tag tie does a pretty convincing job of conveying the idea of fur - at least the kind that stands on end.... HISS!! Same goes for the soft and fuzzy suede background paper.

I used the score blade on my paper cutter to make an embossed border on both the gold paper and cream card... quick to do, kind of manly, and I like the way the lines frame the cat.

If you're new to quilling, check out the Tutorials tab located at the top of the page for lots of how-tos and tips. Questions? I'll be happy to help in the comments section.
