My card began with the background. I was inspired by the watercolour challenge over at Creative Chick Jenn Shurkus COOLest Card Series (Week 2). I heat-embossed a number of tiny heart and snowflake stamps (Poppystamps Cup of Cheer and Newton's Nook Frozen Friends) in white. Then I used a watercolour smooshing technique with Distress Inks (Evergreen Bough, Wilted Violet, and Seedless Preserves). I love how it turned out!
I added some leftover glitter cardstock strips (DCWV) along the side. I die-cut a stitched heart (Gina Marie Designs) from vellum and adhered the kitties. I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment on a white scrap and hand-cut an angled edge. I added a number of puffy heart stickers from my stash and some small die-cut snowflakes (Lawn Fawn). Lastly I added Snow Writer on the white parts of the kitties' hats.
