Dear Santa, Define Good

Here I am again today with another holiday card! Again it features an adorable pre-coloured clip-art image from MyGrafico called Christmas Cat Clip Art Set. I won the set last year and I'm really having fun with it - this is the third card I've made!


For the background, I applied embossing paste through a Hot Off the Press Snowfall stencil, die-cut the panel with Avery Elle Wonky Stitches, and stamped a sentiment from Newton's Nook Newton's Curious Christmas.  I added some sparkly red, silver, and gold polka-dot washi tape and finished off the card with some gold sequins.

I would also like to support these challenges (listed alphabetically): Aud Sentiments Funny Sentiment 4/5; Crafting by Designs July AG 3/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Use a Sentiment UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra June UE; Creatalicious AG Optional CAS 1/3; Creative Fingers AG 3/3; Hiding in my Craftroom Any Holiday 2/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Jo's Scrap Shack AG 2/3; Not Just Cards June AG UE; Penny's Paper-crafty AG 3/3; Send a Smile 4 Kids Punches and/or Die Cuts 4 Kids 3/3; Simon Says Stamp Monday Tic-Tac-Toe (sequins, stencil, washi) 1/5; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 4/5; SUYP Cats Only Furry-thing Goes UE; Sweet Stampin' Christmas Warm Winter Clothing 3/3; The Outlawz Twisted Thursday AG/Twist AG 2/2; The 12 Months of Christmas Silver and Gold 1/3 (FT); Word Art Wednesday AG Uplifting Sentiment 3/5

  9. Another adorable kitty and you have had a fab idea to partial stenciling the background with an embossing paste and the snowflakes! It has a great look! And your card sparkles so well with the washi tapes and the sequins!
    Hugs my friend, hope that all it's ok, now...

  16. Love your snowfall! (had to re-read to see that it was paste emboss, not EF embossing!) Love it the way you've placed it on the design. Also like the wonky stitching that displays this cheery Christmas kitty. Darling. TFS & Hugs
