Spare the Holiday Cheer

Hi friends! A big ol’ Happy Thursday to you! Today is Day 4 of the 2022 Cat Lovers Hop and I have another fun cat-themed project to share! Remember, the Hop is going on until the 29th, so if you’re a fellow cat lover, come join us! This is my fourth year participating and it’s something I look forward to every year! There’s a lot of fun and games to join in every day, and Janis has lined up some outstanding sponsors with outstanding prizes to give away at the end!

I don’t use very many digital stamps these days but I remembered I had several digital stamp sets from The Cat’s Pajamas and thought this one would be perfect to use to create a card for the Hop! That sentiment just cracks me up because it’s SO cat!

I printed the image and front/inside sentiments on CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock, trimmed them, and colored the image with alcohol markers. I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock along with layering panels from Sunny Studio Polka-Dot Parade 6×6 cardstock and CutCardStock Curious Metallic Gold Leaf cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the focal panel with Darice Adhesive Foam Strips. The finishing touch was adding several pearls from an Eyelet Outlet green Pearl Bling Strip.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of Sunny Studio Polka-Dot Parade and CutCardStock Curious Metallic Gold Leaf cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to the panel and then adhered the panel to a gold leaf cardstock layer.

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
