Meowy Christmas

Hi everyone! Well, we’re beginning the month of July. Can you believe it?! A new challenge has launched this morning over at the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you for MLCCB #12 – July Anything Christmas Goes! I sure do love fun folds and I finally got around to trying a book fold. I’ve had the instructions printed in my tutorial folder for quite some time which I believe I got out of a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter. I thoroughly enjoyed this one! ;)


I used the Simon Says Stamp Christmas Cats stamps and die set that I’ve had in my stash for a couple years and have never used. Not sure how that happened, lol! I kept with the traditional red and green Christmas colors. I stamped all the images and sentiments from the set in black ink on ivory cardstock and then colored the images with my Studio 71 alcohol markers.


I arranged the colored images and sentiments on the front and the inside ‘book.’


Here’s an overhead view of the construction. Really loving how this turned out. I see more of these in my future, lol!


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla cardstock, Stampin’ Up This Christmas specialty DSP
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp Christmas Cats stamp set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Studio 71 alcohol markers- E10, E17, R6, R12, R18, N2, N5, B15, BG3, BG7, BG8, BG12, Y11

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s fun fold and will link up a Christmas project with us this month! Thanks so much for stopping by today and we’ll see you again soon! ;)

Scrappy hugs,

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Adorable card and this is so cute with the cat on it. My two cats (Buddy and Abby) gave it their paw of approval as well. :)
