Meowy Christmas x3

Welcome

Earlier in the month I won a set of stamps and dies from Your Next Stamp called Meowy Christmas, and I used the stamps to make some cards for my Grandchildren


The boys have cards identical in layout but in different colour-ways


To add interest I used corrugated card between the image panels and the card base


and layered the sentiments and images over heavy card for some dimension.


Both cards had a layer of sparkle card to give them a bit of Christmas shine!

I am linking these to:



My oldest grand daughter is not a frills and fuss girl, so I compromised with an embossed layer, using a Petal Lace  EF by Brutus Monroe


I die cut the cat image with an oval die, and edged it with black, before mounting it on the diamond glitter card which was backed with black card.


All the sentiment panels were edged in black and mounted offset over another black panel. I added dimension by mounting them over a layer of think card.  
The card base for this card is a deep lavender card purchased from a local printer.

The cats were coloured according to the cats in the boys homes, and my grand daughters is coloured to look like my boy.
