Santa is watching

Hi everyone! I’ve popped in today to post a fun card I created for the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop! This is Day 1 of the Hop, so if you’re a fellow crazy cat person, be sure to come on over and play – Janis has been working hard getting tons of sponsors so that means there are tons of prizes to be won!

I created a somewhat CAS card featuring a mischievous feline playing with a ball of yarn. This guy is from the Stampers Anonymous Crazy Cats stamp set, cut with coordinating die and colored with Studio 71 alcohol markers.

I used a Tim Holtz mixed media die in the lower left corner backed with red foil (DCWV Washi Tape Basics). OMGoodness, foil is SO hard to photograph! I even went outside because I’ve had better luck in the past taking pics of foil outside, but it’s been so windy over the past couple days that I wasn’t able to do it.

I kept the inside simple with a couple strips of the red foil at the top and a stamped sentiment.

And here’s one more look… I’m really happy with how this turned out and it’s in my pile of Christmas cards that’ll be mailed out on December 1st! It’s coming fast! ;)
