No Peeking!

Hello, everyone! Yes, it's another festive shaker card! I just can't help myself! This little kitty is from Bugaboo Digi Stamps and it's an image from Kawaii Kitties Set.  I coloured the kitty with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut. The original image is a kitty with a balloon but I used just the kitty. He's trying to peek at his presents!

The epoxy circle kitten embellishment was made by me! See this post for how I made it.  Here are the other items used:
  • Dies: Marianne Design Christmas Trees, Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders
  • Sentiment stamp: Newton's Nook Newton's Curious Christmas (heat embossed in white)
  • Patterned paper: We R Memory Keepers
  • Glitter cardstock:  Dollarama
  • Accents: Poinsettia, gift, gingerbread man, stocking, pawprint heart charm, stars, sequins - all from my stash

I was inspired by the challenge at Catch the Bug Christmas in July - Day 5:

By cutting away the balloon you got an image fit for Christmas, or any occasion really. I like your idea of cutting our the shaker panel like a tree and with the papers and colors your card is ultra Christmasy.
