Penny Black Feline Christmas card and MFT Happy Pawlidays Christmas card

Hello everyone, I hope you are well and getting some crafty time to yourself. I am studiously ignoring the chores, staying tucked up warm, and enjoying my craft time while I can.

We're back for another month at ABC Christmas Challenges

Our lovely host this time is Helene (Mummylade), and she has a prize for the lucky winner.

Our Themes this time are

 C for Cat 
D for Dog

and this is what I came up with

C for Cats

I didn't have a Christmas cat image so I decided to stretch my stash by using the Penny Black Feline die. I settled on a CAS design and cut the die from black glossy card. I made a simple background for it by spattering a couple of blue inks onto white card and layered it up. To make it festive, I made a Christmas hat for each cat out of some scraps of card and then white embossed the sentiments above and below the panel.

D for Dog


For this card I stamped, coloured and die-cut the cute dog image from the MFT Happy Pawlidays stamp set, and die-cut the Christmas lights from a die set from Spellbinders. I die-cut the background panel from the Nordic Frames set by The Greetery and used a stencil to lightly ink a rectangle on it.
The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted and I finished off by adding some gloss to the baubles with Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

There's a lot of inspiration from my Teamies over on the ABC Christmas Challenges blog and you can join in with us by entering your card into the gallery there.

I'd like to play along at
