I had already had the adorable kitties stamped, colored and cut from a coloring session I had a while back. I am SO in love with Newton's Nook stamps, I go to the website so often to just drool, I hope they don't think I'm stalking them. OK, back to the card - I had just gotten the Hampton Art sentiment stamp and I think it is so funny, it fits my sense of humor perfectly, and I knew it would give my sister a giggle. I cut my card base to 4" x 4" so it would fit in the little box I was sending. I found this old, old, OLD designer paper in my stash (I have NO idea where I got it from - I purchased it back in the day when stamping stores sold paper in large sheets for book makers) and decided to use it as a background. I then stamped the sentiment on a piece of white card, trimmed it down, and pop dotted the cats above the sentiment.
Glued it all together and threw it in the box. The picture above shows the gold sparkly flourishes - I like that they aren't too flashy - and they pep up the neutrals I used on the card.
I can't wait to hear what she has to say when she sees this!! I'm diving right in to the New Year, looking forward to all the new goodies at CHA and determined to meet some of my crafting goals. I hope you and yours have a fabulous New Year ~ Hugs! Christi
