For this card I chose an older set: Peppermint Cats. Again going with non-traditional colors, I broke out my new Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly Mini Deck. I've been itching to use these papers 'cause they're so stinkin' cute! I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. I used some Stickles on the stars, some Liquid Applique for the Santa hat fur, and paper pieced the bottom part. I matted the image on a layer cut/embossed with a Nestabilities Label Four die, sponged the edges and popped it up on 3M foam squares. I used a snowflake border punch for the second element (although it's mostly covered up!), some lace for the horizontal elements, and buttons from my stash and PTI twine for the top accents. Lots of distressing--both ink and sanding--on just about all of the elements. I tried to make the sentiment element look like a gift box. Did it work?
We'd love for you to come play along with us. Head on over to the forum and join in the fun--there's a prize for some lucky someone :)
Thanks for dropping in today!
