Merry Catmas

Hello crafters!  Its time for a cute Kitty Christmas card!  I started by cutting the Slimline Inner Scalloped Rectangle Aperture Trio along with the Slimline Outer Scalloped Rectangle Aperture Trio.  I cut them both in white and over laid them together.  I added mounting foam to the back and attached an Arctic Blue card backing piece.  I left a wide margin around the die cut so I used the Essential Frames and added a thin red frame on top.  I cut all four cats in gray card and added some accents with a white gel pen.  I added the cats to all three of the apertures and the walking cat was added to the bottom corner of the frame.  I added some of the accessories to the cats too, the yarn ball, a scarf, the kitty bed and a little mouse.  I cut the Merry Catmas out of black card and glued it to the area between the bottom two apertures.  The card was completed with white and red mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5 1/4"  x  10"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Lol. I absolutely love this Sue. I wondered if it was financially sensible to get this at launch as I don't know so many cat lovers (I'm a doggy person as are our small family) although there is just one cat with serious attitude in our daughters little family dogs rule though. But having a closer look these like a majority of your festive releases are not just for Christmas so you have convinced me that after the festive card season silhouette cats are the way to go so I'll get it ordered. For those that are cat crazy this is definitely the card for them, we certainly need some Sue Wilson family dies though slightly smaller than your Noble dies, I know lots of companies have them out there but if you were to survey your followers I'd hope it would be a success if you designed the family and extended family dies in your beautiful fonts. Love to all that visit today stay well be happy xxx

Good Morning Sue and all.
I'm late this moorning and didn't feel like getting out of bed but here I am, at my first port of call.
Today's card is absolutely beautiful.
My Daughter-in-Law is a cat lover and I do have the die so perhaps I'll have a play later in the day.
Thank you Sue for the inspiration.

A cute Christmas card for a cat lover - my granddaughter! The first thing she did after moving into her own home was to rescue a cat so this would be ideal if I only had the Dies! Thank you Sue.

Good Morning Sue. I am so sorry I couldn't post yesterday. I finally made the big 75 and yesterday was surprise and celebration day with my two wonderful sons and their familys. I just didn't have time. My BIRTHDAY is today (Sat) with even more surprises planned for me. What a weekend.
Today's card is lovely . I love your little kittens. And there will be so many uses for these dies and not only for the children. I know many grown ups? who adore cats. Thankyou Sue.
Sending hugs ๐Ÿค— and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds

Hi Sue, I adore this card. I made one for my niece's birthday last month with several cats and one cheeky dog that snuck in on the action, she loved it. I am looking forward to making lots with all the Christmas accessories. ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ•

Happy Birthday Ann, I hope you have a wonderful day.
