Meowy Christmas! Yep. Again.

Since I'm all about cats all the time, lots of my holiday cards will feature cats. Seeing that I have a huge collection of feline images, the only problem is choosing which cat stamp to feature!

Today's card features The Fat Cats #6 (Katzelkraft), who I have dubbed The Cat Singer. 

The Fat Cats #6, aka The Cat Singer, was stamped onto Neenah cardstock and onto Eclipse Tape (Judikins). The Eclipse Tape version was fussy-cut and adhered over its counterpart as a mask. The Santa hat from Funny Accessories stamp set (Katzelkraft) was stamped onto the image, over the mask, then also stamped onto a scrap of Eclipse Tape. It was also fussy-cut, then adhered to the image panel to mask the hat. Post-It Notes were adhered over the base of the image panel, which was then airbrushed with G43 and G46 Copic markers using the airbrush system. The image panel was trimmed, the masks were lifted, then the scene was colored with Copic markers.

The excess Copic airbrushed cardstock was die-cut with the curtains dies from the Take The Stage die set (Die-namics). A scrap of red cardstock was die-cut with the tie-backs from this set. I set my little scene by adhering the curtains, swags, and tie-backs onto the image panel, which was matted with black cardstock.

Red cardstock was stamped with the fabulous new Decor Cling Music stamp (Stampendous) using Jet Black Archival ink and my new Tim Holtz Stamp Platform (Tonic Studios).  This music-stamped piece was trimmed, matted with black cardstock, and adhered to a red card.

The Meowy Christmas (The Cat's Pajamas) was stamped onto another scrap of the excess airbrushed cardstock, then die-cut with a nameplate die (Spellbinders).

The scenic image panel and sentiment were adhered to the card and I declared this card to be complete.

Thanks for visiting today!
