Lyn set us the challenge of Christmas in July at Quirky Crafts, with die cuts or punches, and then couldn't find her die cutting machine! I thought I was bad!
Anyway our sponsor is the great Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps and as soon as I saw Ike's Art Bauble Cat I thought of the idea of making the bauble cat into a bauble too, but my attempt at "lights" for shine have failed miserably and look like dirty patches that I forgot to colour. I used Spellbinders dies to cut the paper panel, bauble and poinsettia and a Martha Stewart punch to make the pine branch. Papers are some old Papermania ones, and the ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons. I added a few flat back pearls to the centre of the poinsettia. The bauble and cat are coloured with Promarkers and I added some sparkly Mod Podge over the top. I am already working on another version, this time a Siamese cat!
Inside I die cut two panels from the paper and a smaller bauble in white to write on.
I know it isn't the greatest but I have entered my card in the following challenges:
