Happy Sunday everyone. I spent about an hour in my craft room yesterday having the Festive Friday inspiration photo in mind. I hadn't used a lot of my Christmas Dies for some time and decided to get them out and play.
I have created a Christmas Window (inspired by Kittie). I made a few of these last year and they are a lot of fun to make. Time consuming but fun :)
Here is my card -
I created the wreath using the Impression Obsession Twig Wreath Die (only the holly and berries) and the Pine Sprig Cluster Die.
I stamped the background with the SU Serene Silhouettes stamp. I haven't used this one before so it was nice to use it in this little scene.
The window is the Grand Madison die from Memory Box.
The cat is a die from Impression Obsession and I have added Baked Brown Sugar ink and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to make him look like my siamese cat, Gadget. I had a few sparkly berries left over so I gave him a cute collar. This is exactly what Gadget does when there are birds out in the backyard.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges
