Merry Kitty


Todays card is a little one it's only 5" square, as the stamp is so small - it looked lost on my usual size card of a 6" square. The stamp is a new one that i got from the Sir Stampalot sale as Xmas. I've used vellum on this card which is a product i don't use very often - i have paper pieced the bauble with vellum and when i did the embossed section - because it looked horrible just the vellum on pearlescent gold card i decided to emboss the vellum and white card together, before wrapping it in some sheer gold ribbon.

The Challenges i'm entering are :

ABC Christmas Challenge - where C is for 'Clean and Simple' and the lovely Helen has come up with a fabby sketch

CCEE Stampers - where Challenge CCEE1106 is 'Embossing'

I often think that little cards make the best cards and this one is no exception :)

Hi Sam, this card is just adorable. I really like the embossing on this.
I always liked making bigger cards too, thought I was in the minority and have been trying to work with the smaller ones.
