Meowy Christmas: The snuggle is real

Hello, everyone!  As you've probably noticed, I'm really enjoying Christmas in July! I have another festive card to share! This one features three cute kitties from Bugaboo Digi Stamps called Meowy Christmas Cats. They remind me of my three kitties! I coloured them with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut so I could pop them up on foam tape.


Here are the other items used:
  • Dies: Lawn Fawn Stitched Ovals
  • Sentiment stamps: Newton's Nook - Newton's Holiday Mischief; Sugar Pea Designs - Smitten Kitten (heat embossed in white)
  • Misc: Vellum, sparkly washi tape, and star sequins - all from my stash

I was inspired by the challenge at Catch the Bug Christmas in July - Day 7 - Colour Inspiration:

This color scheme was quite a challenge for many, you solved that elegantly adding decorative glittery strips of washi, lucky you had them in all the colors needed. And there are cats, of course:)
