Well I mentioned yesterday about my goal of making two Christmas cards each month so here's my second one for June. Goal achieved - yay! This one features a vintage kitty in a stocking - you know I love kitties! I upcycled the image from a card I received last year and fussy-cut all around it so I could pop it up with foam tape.
The musical panel with the decorative scalloped edge is from Recollections. The sentiment is an acrylic sticker (Deja Views) - I added it vertically - I really like the vintage font used. The card base is dark brown, and the layered panel is kraft but I wanted to give it a more vintage look so I stamped a vintage Christmas image (Recollections) repeatedly in Simon Says Stamp khaki. Then I inked all around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I added two strips of gold/red ribbon along the top and bottom edges and green ribbon and bow along the left edge.
