More Merry Cats: Inlaid Die Cuts Part II

Make It Monday #138: Inlaid Die-cuts

This has to be one of my favorite combination of dies and stamps EVER!!!
I am so excited to share this with everyone.

I knew when I saw those strings and little lights at Papertrey Ink, I HAD to have the Come All Ye Faithful Additions set!

What started as a fairly simple vision became somewhat labor intensive in terms of stamping; it also took a bit of time to decide what papers I would use for the inlaid cats.  Look at these little precious fellows from Impression Obsession!  The little chicken-sitting one on the right reminds me of my Leo!

I used all Colorbox inks for the lights and Memento Cocoa for the antlers and strings.

When I finished the card, I thought about embellishing the bottom or adding a sentiment under the cats, but it was one of those cards that just seemed perfect as is was.  I hadn’t visualized it with so much white space, but it’s exactly what it needed to put the focus on the colors and shapes.

Here’s the cheeky sentiment also from Papertrey Ink!  Instead of adding the embellishment to the front, I put fun paper on the inside.
