52CCT - Theme ...

....  Good morning!  I'm running really late with this post - should have been up about 10 hours ago!  Oh well, never mind.  It's time for our new challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and Louise has picked the theme of CHRISTMAS CATS.  I don't have many cat stamps, but I knew I had a really old set somewhere - and I found it this morning! Yea me!  Here's my card:

Purrfect Christmas - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: SeeD's - Animal Christmas; Winnie & Walter - Scenery Party Hangover; Waltzingmouse - 2011 Holiday Ornaments
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Old Olive; Encore - Gold
Dies: Lil Inkers - Stitched Rectangles #4, Dual Stitched Rectangles #3
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Mistletoe; Copic Markers; Stickles Clear


I had fun with this card.  I stamped the three cats on scrap card, coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out.  I die cut a piece of white card and some design paper for a mat.  I stamped the sled of presents directly on the white panel, coloured it and then used my stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the cats on the card.  Then I adhered the cats and finished the front with a tiny sentiment (purrfect with the cats!!) and some party banners.  On the inside I cut a mat from more design paper and on the white panel added another cat and a simple sentiment.

Do pop over to the 52CCT blog and check out the inspiration cards from the rest of the team - they're fabulous. 

Now that I've got this card done, I'm off to spend the day with Kathryn for some girly pampering!  See you soon.
