Candy Cane Kitty Shaker

Hi, everyone!  I'm still trying to beat this unbearable heat by making winter/holiday cards!  Is it hot where you are?


Clear stamps: Newton's Nook - Newton's Candy Cane
Embossing folder: Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow
Other:  Diamond Stickles added to kitty's hat, sequins from my stash

This snowflake die-cut window is the offcut from the snowflake on yesterday's card.  I thought it would be purr-fect for a shaker so that's what I made!  

My card was inspired by the Cute Animals theme at Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge 75.  Who can resist their sweet inspiration graphic?!

What an adorable card! Love that little kitty and the fun shape you used for your shaker card! So happy you linked this up to The House That Stamps Built!

Debi said...

Gee, I can remember when a certain friend of mine had never tried a shaker card. She is definitely a pro now! I love the kitty image and the stickles on her hat. If the sentiment is from the same set, I may have to make an investment, because it is super "sweet". Thanks so much for joining the fun at Tuesday Throwdown. Good luck. Debi DT TT
