Kitty Claus

I love making Christmas cards in non-traditional colours - and that's what I did today!  I was inspired by several challenges (see inspiration below). I embossed turquoise cardstock with snowflakes, added a yellow ribbon with bow, and mounted on black cardstock, which covered a white card base.  I printed the sentiment (which was a digi freebie from Trimgym Digistamps, Images and Papers - thank you, Jo), trimmed closely, and then affixed to the ribbon.  I stamped the kitty in black on a white scrap, coloured with pencils, added Stickles to his pompom, layered with pink cardstock, and mounted to the card with foam tape.  Lastly, I punched three snowflakes from pink and yellow cardstock and adhered to the card, adding a gem to the centre of each one.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Sketch:  Annabelle Stamps Sketch AC168 (see below)
  • Stamps:  Kitty Claus (Stampendous), sentiment (Trimgym)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Coloured Pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Cardstock:  Recollections  / White Card Base:  Domtar
  • Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Snowflakes
  • Ribbon:  Offray
  • Glitter Glue:  Stickles Diamond
  • Punch:  Unknown/unmarked
  • Gems:  Dollarama
