Season’s Greetings! I needed a kitty Christmas card for my friend so I used my Raisin Boat’s Naughty or Nice stamp set. There is an adorable cat pawing at an ornament that just screamed “Use Me!”…So I did! The hysterical sentiment was also from this set. “Christmas tree…the reason cats need 9 lives” 😀
I colored him in with my ShinHan alcohol markers and I used Sunny Studio Stamps pine branch from the Holiday Style stamp set for the extra branches (which I stamped super lightly in Pear ink that had been stamped off twice) and I added flicks with my alcohol markers to give it interest. I used this stamp on the inside of the card as well and used a CTMH sentiment stamp.
I stamped the pine boughs in CTMH Pear ink and the sentiment both on the front and inside with CTMH Cranberry ink. I went over the ornament with my Wink of Stella and topped it off with Glossy Accents to give it dimension. I mounted this on red cardstock that was added to a piece of holly patterned paper I had in my stash. Oh, I almost forgot I also put a strip of white Shimmer Tape from Close To My Heart across the front to add some sparkle. I LOVE that stuff!
