Vintage Kittens 2 of 3 (Nicecrane Designs)

Hello, everyone!  I had a busy crafting weekend due to insomnia!  As promised, I am back with the second of my three Vintage Kittens cards that I made with the set of Christmas Kittens by Louis Wain from Ignacio at Nicecrane Designs.  This one is called Kitty's Tea Party and it's my favourite of the set!  I really had fun adding all kinds of bits and bobs to create a vintage look.

Here are the other supplies used:
  • Digital stamps:  Heart Bingo Card (Diane's Daydream Designs), Remember Sentiment Tag (Decosse's Dynamite Doodles), Vintage Film Tag (Bizzy Becs Store)
  • Die:  Cat (All Occasion Dies)
  • Patterned Paper:  MME Lost and Found, MME Kraft Fun Day
  • Ribbon:  Red (Crafty Ribbons - won this, thank you!), burlap (Michael's)
  • Accents: Charms, buttons (stash)
  • Ink:  Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy (sponged around card edge and image)

Here's a look at Christmas Kittens by Louis Wain from Nicecrane Designs.
