Cat Lovers Hop 2021 - Day 3 (Hohoho)

Hi, everyone!  It's Day 3 of the 7th Annual Cat Lovers Hop!  If you love cats as much as I do, then this is the place to be!  There is a lot to see and do, and it all involves kitties!  If you haven't already checked it out, it runs until October 30.  As for me, I've already fallen behind in visiting the myriad of kitty card link-ups, so I'll be back at it today!

In the meantime, here's my card for today, and it's another winter holiday card. I stamped the kitty, holly, and hat from Avery Elle's Dear Santa, coloured them with markers, and fussy-cut so I could pop them up on foam tape. For the background, I ink-blended Distress Oxides (Candied Apple, Festive Berries, Spun Sugar) and spritzed with water.  After it dried, I die-cut with STAMPlorations Holiday Words Plate.  The white panel is embossed with Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow.
