Here is my card .... can you guess what I love??


There had to be cute cats, of course! Colored using my Zig Clean Color makers which I also love. And a sort of clean and simple style which I love. And I love making Christmas cards! 

I'm sure most of you will recognize this cute cat stamp from Penny Black, it's from the set Deck the Halls. It has been stamped onto Bristol Vellum Paper using Versafine Onyx ink and as mentioned colored using my Zig Clean Color markers and a Zig Detailer brush

My paper is very old, from a Stampin Up Christmas pack. The gold cord I've had forever as well.

How fun is  this sentiment from the PB set Dear Santa! Isn't is just perfect for these cute innocent looking cats? I'm sure they only have good intentions with this string of lights 😄 

Part of it has been stamped directly onto the card base, and the other part has been heat embossed using white detail embossing powder on black card stock. 





Thanks so much for visiting!

  1. That sentiment has brought a wry smile to my face as it's so fitting for the scenario in my craft room this morning, Rosa now seven months and having been such a good puppy decided in a moment of madness to strip one of the walls bare. I hadn't intended having it decorated but.......

    A lovely Christmas card though Ellie.
