To make a card for our neighbors, who owns a pretty grey kitty:
I created the door by dry embossing some pieces of kraft cardstock with a woodgrain pattern and then sponging some Crumb Cake ink around the edges to add some additional depth & texture and added a big brad as the doorknob. Cutting Newton (here Newton is dressed as 'Nigel' kitty, who is grey) out was a bit tricky, but once that was accomplished I hung his wreath from the door using a smaller brad and thought since his tail was curling that would be a cut way to attach the sentiment dangling by some sparkly twine as a sign with the sentiment stamped & punched out with a word window punch. I hope they will like it! They don't know I stamp. A lot of folks find out this about me at Christmas, LOL!
- Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge: Christmas/Holidays. (Did you know Simon Says Stamp also carries Newton's Nook Designs? They do! You can always check them if a set you want is temporarily sold out on the website!)
- A Random Fan Challenge 20: Christmas with a Hand-colored image (Newton is colored with Copic markers)
I hope you like my card and I hope I have inspired you to continue (or start...) your holiday cards and projects... unless you are finished already. I am finished with Hanukkah and started my holiday & Christmas cards long ago, but still have quite a few more to complete before the holiday. Don't forget - any Christmas themed cards or projects you make using NND stamps you can enter in our current Inky Paws Challenge running through Friday, December 12th at midnight CST as well!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
