Merry and Bright Star Shaker

Hello, everyone! Today I'm sharing a star-themed shaker card with a kitty!  I made an ombre background behind the kitty with distress inks! The kitty is holding a small gold star!


Here are the products used:

  • Stamps: Cat (Poppystamps Cat Friends), sentiment (Lawn Fawn Snow Day)
  • Dies: Cat (Poppystamps Cat Friends Dies), large stars (Gina Marie Designs Stitched Star), small stars (Memory Box Cosmic Star Set)
  • Embossing folder:  Darice Assorted Stars
  • Colouring medium: Touch Five markers
  • Distress Inks:  Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover, Evergreen Bough
  • Other:  Glitter cardstock and confetti sequins from my Dollarama stash

I was inspired by the Shine Bright challenge at Cupcake Inspirations, the Awesome Ombre challenge at MFT's Camp Create, and the Shake it Up challenge at Poppystamps.
