Kitty in a Tree Christmas Card


While browsing on Pinterest I spotted the perfect card to sum up this week at our house.  A cat in a Christmas tree! The card was by Christy's Stamping Spot and you can see it here: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/339458890673223949/

I loved the idea and immediately whipped up this version of Christy's card, changing it only slightly to fit with papers and dies I had on hand.  It's such a fun card, I love it!  

The stamp set with the cat is called Clever Cats from Stampin' Up!  The sentiment originally reads 'Have a purr-fect Halloween' but I left off the Halloween and added a Christmas stamp from the 'Christmas to Remember' stamp set. 

I really wanted to share Christy's fun card.  I checked the inventory list at Stampin' Up! to see if the Christmas Trees dies were still available since I knew they were on the retirement list, and sure enough, they are all sold out!! Bummer!  I didn't want to share a card made with supplies that were no longer available, so I looked again at my stash.  

The Clever Cats stamp set is currently 'While Supplies Last' so act quickly if you want to get that one!

I changed up the paper to use a still available pattern pack.  I also changed the tree die to a Stitched Triangle die, you could also just cut a triangle, but I do love that stitched edge. 

For ornaments I went with some fun sequins and some gold trim for garland. 

The inside of the card also uses a sentiment from the Christmas to remember stamp set. I also added another cat from the Clever Cats stamp set.  I stamped the cat image a second time on Kraft paper and cut out the box to lay over the stamped box. 

Take a look at the how to video for a step by step tutorial for this card. 

And here is a video that shows my cat Trixie in action in our tree!
