Nicecrane GDT - Season's Greetings Meow

Hello, everyone!  A very warm welcome to my newest follower - Dog's Mom - thank you for joining me! This month I have the pleasure of being a guest designer for Nicecrane Designs! Ignacio's vintage images and digis are some of my favourites, and I am having fun with them! Today's card features a a pair of kitties wearing little bonnets from the Vintage Funny Kittens set.  I inked around the edges with distress ink to give it a vintage look.

I decided to make a Christmas card this time.  The Vintage Funny Kittens are perfect for any occasion!  I did some stamping here as well.  Last week I won a Clearly Besotted Stamps gift voucher in a blog hop, and I couldn't wait to use my new Flight of Fancy stamp and die.  Just love this set!  I also stamped a rubber stamp sentiment on the music dp.   Then I added lots of fun items from my stash to make it interesting.  The corrugated cardboard strip is recycled from an envelope that came in the mail.  

Take a look at all the fun images you get in Nicecrane's Vintage Funny Kittens set:

  • Dies:  Clearly Besotted Flight of Fancy, Impression Obsession Cat Set
