Another Kitty Sweater

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Tracy - thank you for joining me!  

Yes, it's another cute "ugly" sweater!  This is my last one for now, but I plan to make some more!  I think I'm hooked!  I found this cute kitty already coloured and fussy-cut in my unfinished pile from last year.  The stamped and die-cut lamp post was there too.  I'm working through that pile but it's going to take a while!


Products used:
  • Clear stamps: Penny Black Winter Friends (cat), Lawn Fawn Winter in the Park (lamp post)
  • Die: Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangle, Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders, Lawn Fawn Winter in the Park (lamp post), Gina Marie Designs -Scalloped Stitched Frame Set (used scraps of bad cut), Memory Box Twilight Snowflakes
  • Patterned paper: Lawn Fawn Snow Day
  • Digital image: Scrap n Stamp ugly sweater template
  • Other: Glossy Accents
Starting with the background, I die-cut the patterned paper with a stitched rectangle and mounted it on red glitter cardstock. I printed the sweater template twice, once on patterned paper and once on white. I die-cut the white with a landscape border and then paper-pieced. Lots of fussy-cutting for the sweater and paper-piecing, but I enjoy fussy-cutting!  I adhered the lamp post to the sweater and popped up the kitty with foam tape and then added Glossy Accents to kitty's eyes. I finished the card with three red glitter die-cut snowflakes, some scraps from a bad die-cut frame, and a self-made greeting in Microsoft Word.

Naturally, I'll be reading your posts out of order. This is so cute it can't be an ugly sweater. A plus for the fussy cutting. [Bunny]

If I had looked a little closer I would have put on my DT hat and say: "Thanks for playing along with the anything goes challenge at 12 Months of Christmas Link Up." LOL! Still love the card!

A delightful Christmas card Kitty, many thanks for sharing and joining in our 'Sparkle and Shine' theme at Allsorts challenge (if you linked to any others I'm involved with then my thanks as well, can't read the smaller print with these dodgy eyes).

I like your "cute ugly sweater". Great card Kitty.
I have been reading Eli's antics but am unable to leave comments on Flickr. Pleased to see that Eli might finally be released from Quarantine and will be joining you. He has probably had far too long to be thinking up mischief.
