I used my favourite cart at the moment (create a critter) P.38 and cut it at 3". I did cut the bed at 3" at first but then decided it was way to big and cut it at 2 1/2" instead. i used a standard A2 cream card and a variety of papers. I stamped 'B-day' around the cats bed in black ink as I don't have a good brown right now. i used a assortment of buttons to embellish and glossy accents for the nose to make it look wet.
