Happy Christmas

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! It’s Day 4 of the 2020 Cat Lovers Hop already and I’m back this afternoon with a fun Christmas center panel easel card! The Hop is going on until the 31st, so if you’re a fellow cat lover, come join us! There’s a lot of fun and games to join in every day, and Janis has been busy lining up some pretty awesome prizes to give away at the end!

I still had Tim’s Crazy Cats and Crazy Things stamps and dies within reach after using them day before yesterday, so I grabbed them and The Project Bin’s Merriest Christmas stamp set which has sentiments that go perfectly with this cat, lol! This guy is so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it!

I created the card base from Solar White cardstock and layers from coordinating Christmas papers. This is an easy fold that works up quickly. I adjusted the measurements to make this a 5″ square card.

Here’s an angled view so you can see the cool but simple construction. Not sure why his hat is looking orangey in the photos… hmmmm…

And one more peek… here it is folded (almost) flat for mailing! Another one for the stash! ;)

    What a fun easel card, and what a fun kitty. I have the Tim Holtz Crazy cats, but have never even inked them up yet…shame on me! I need to rummage around and see what other stamps I can use as accessories, as I didn’t get the coordinating stamps to go with them. Love the sentiment too!

    Oh, Leslie…..that cat is perfect with the sentiment and his Santa CLAWS hat. Such a fun expression on his face and body language! Looks like he got into his gifts a bit early, judging from the fish skeleton! Ha. Wonderful fancy fold card!

    Thank you so much for joining in the purry, furry fun at the #2020CatLoversHop!!
