I decided to make a Christmas card this week and came up with this card using a couple of different companies' stamp sets.
I took the cat and cat bed from Cool Cat by MFT and added the Santa Hat from Happy Howlidays by SSS/Lawn Fawn to create a Santa Paws :) All three images were masked and then fussy-cut out.
Once I'd finished coloring and cutting, I put the cat to one side and concentrated on the card base. For some reason, I was determined to use an open banner frame so had to make the actual base interesting. I used a stencil and some Scattered Straw ink to sponge some color onto the base and then placed the white stitched banner frame. I positioned the cat so I could stamp my sentiment and then finally adhered the cat.
Thanks for visiting. The rest of the design team have some wonderful inspiration for you so be sure to check them out.
I'm linking this up to AAA Cards who have a masking challenge going at the moment.
