Meowy Christmas

The High Hopes design team is continuing to share Christmas in July posts. How talented are my fellow designers!?! I hope you have been inspired to start your Christmas cards - it's never too early! 

My card today features "Christmas Kitty Fun" and the "Meowy Christmas Saying" sentiment - both from High Hopes. How cute are these kittens!!! Every cat and kitten I know can play for hours in a box and honestly, I can see one of my brothers doing this to my younger sister......

Close Up

I started by colouring my image with alcohol markers and then cut it out leaving a bit of a white edge. I glued it down and cut it out of cardstock and popped them it with pop dots. 

I wanted my card to look like a present with ribbon and a bow so I found some paper in my stash from MME and created my card base. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out, again, leaving a bit of an edge and then mounting it on cardstock. Glitter was added to the Santa hat and clear sparkle pen was added to the red bow and to the cardstock bow (hard to see). I left the layout fairly simple on this card because I wanted these two kittens to steal the show.

Very cute image! I love cats, We have four cats.
And one of them, the oldest cat of 14 years, play's all the time in the box. Jump in and funny. And everyone that walks by is a prey in her eyes. She has a lot of energy.
Beautiful card made with this beautiful image.
