Hello everyone, Melissa here. Today I have a card to share with you using the Santa’s Helpers stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps. I love all the cute critters in the set but my favorite has to be this little kitty dressed up as a Christmas tree. He is too cute!
To create this card I first stamped the cat image onto a piece of blank card and then masked him off with masking paper. I then die cut a hill border with masking paper and placed that over the bottom portion of the card, this would become the snowy hill. I then worked on inking up the sky. This time I used Simon Says Stamp inks and they worked perfectly! I added a light yellow around the cat to make him look like he was glowing and worked my way out to the edges of the card using darker blues. To finish off the sky I stamped a Santa and reindeer flying over head and added some dots of white gel pen for the stars.
I then removed the masks from the cat and the hill. I colored the cat with Copic markers and added some shadow to the snowy hill. To finish off the card I embossed the greeting with red embossing powder and mounted the card on top of some white and red papers. I hope you enjoyed the card for today! Thanks for stopping by!
