Holiday Card 14 - L for List

Hello, everybody! Today I'm sharing another holiday card! Inspiration has come from the alphabet prompts over at Beccy's Place - she is having her sixth annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge. Day 14 is "L" and I went with List.

I had fun playing with my rubber stamps for this card!  I began by stamping the postcard from The Artistic Stamper Carte Postale in black, the text stamp from the same set in grey, and the postmark in pink.  I inked around the edge of the postcard with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink.  I then stamped Inkadinkado Surprise in red, generic snowflakes in blue, and the sentiment in black.  

The adorable Hanging Kitty clipart is from Imagine That Digistamp; I fussy-cut and popped up on foam tape. The little candy canes and reindeer clipart are from Gecko Galz Candy Cane Lane and Reindeer Game Collage Sheets, and I added two strips of metallic striped washi tape.  I layered the postcard onto black cardstock, then onto patterned paper (Martha Stewart Love Notes) and then red cardstock.  I stamped Special Delivery (from The Artistic Stamper set mentioned above) on the patterned paper.

I would also like to support the following challenges:  Craft Stamper Take It Make It November 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Use a Button UE;  Crop Stop November Link Party AG (Distress Inks available at Crop Stop) 4/5; Cute Card Thursday Snowflakes UE; DL.ART November Linky AG UE 1/d; Gecko Galz November Challenge Jingle All the Way UE; Imagine That Digistamp Year-round Link-up UE; Joy Clair Inspiration Graphic (see below - I was inspired by the candy canes) UE; Just Keep on Creating November AG UE; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 3/3; Pile it On Pets UE; SUYP Cats Only November Furrything Goes UE; The Artistic Stamper Square It (see tiny grid squares on patterned paper) 1/3; Through the Craft Room Door AG 1/2; Tuesday Throwdown Playing Dress Up 1/3; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 1/5 wk2

Lovely and fun card with this design, Kitty! The hanging cat makes me smile! That postcard background gives to your card a very different look and the inked edges give it a lot of dimension!! Has been a brilliant idea putting that cute deer as postage stamp, too! :D Love the light blue of the snowflakes, it makes the card more wintery!
Well done!
Big hugs!

Oh how cute! You have such an eye for putting layers together. Also, remembering what you have on hand. That's part of my problem, I forget what I have in my stash.

Verna Angerhofer said...

This is a wonderful design and I love all the layers of fun things you used for it.

Well done Kitty

This is really awesome Kitty, it is lovely to see you back with us. I am not crafting much as I don't have time these days with my Salvation Army commitments.

Beccy said...

I love this Kitty, what a great design! The collage-look is wonderful, you've done a brilliant job incorporating lots of different stamps and images without making your card over crowded. Love the cute kitty cat hanging from the candy cane and the sentiment is wonderful. Love it all!
