Merry Christmas - Mischievous Cat

For once I thought I would start my Christmas cards when I'm inspired and not wait until closer to Christmas. So this year I had several done by the end of October. I'll be posting these once a week for the month of November.

First up - this mischievous cat, after some thought, had a great idea...

I cut the circles from white cardstock and used the 'Polka Dots' embossing folder by Cuttlebug to give it the delightful texture. I did some basic colouring on the stamped images using coloured pencils. Then I mounted the panel on the front of an A2 cardbase with foam for added dimension.

The cat images are from 'Nine Lives' by Penny Black.   I enjoy using this set for all kinds of cards and for decorating writing paper. The expressions are priceless!

And this is what that cat got up to be expected, right?

I used strips of washi tape to decorate the top and bottom of the inside of the card. All the colouring was done with coloured pencils.

The Christmas tree is from the Penny Black 'Holly-Jolly' set

I used this set for another card I made last year : -  'Critter Christmas'
