Only a few more sleeps until Christmas! Have you got all your holiday shopping done yet? I managed to get mine done early this year as I knew with the girls’ birthday party last week, that it would be a super busy time so I wanted that worry all out of the way!
Anyway, before I get to sharing some Christmas cards with you all, I thought I would pop in and share a custom card I created for a cat lover who was celebrating her birthday recently. Her boyfriend got in touch and wanted me to create a cat themed birthday card for her. She has two black cats, so I knew I had to create something with some cute little black kitties.
I used some cute little cats from the Halloween Feet digital clipart file by Decorartist. How sweet are those cats? Such a fun set to play with! After printing them out onto some 300gsm plain white cardstock, I cut them out digitally using my Silhouette Cameo machine and Pixscan mat.
After arranging them onto my card base, I then stamped the sentiment down using my Mini Misti. The ‘Happy Birthday’ is from the It’s Your Day stamp set by Hero Arts, and the custom sentiment was created using the Jessie’s ABCs by Lawn Fawn.
After sticking down the cats using adhesive foam, I then coated them in a layer of shimmer using a clear Wink of Stella pen. Here is a close up look of the shimmer on the cats:
Finally I then embellished the card with some pink and clear coloured heart sparklets by Kaisercraft.
I really hope Maddy loves her birthday card!
Thank you for stopping by and I’ll be back tomorrow with the first of many Christmas cards to share with you all in the lead up to big day!
