The reason I wanted to mash these cards together was because of that tilting Christmas Tree from the Love You More- Winter Frost set. It’s so fun, but I feel that very little bit of chaos in the tilting tree is so relatable. My husband talked about when his family had a cat, they actually had to stop putting up a tree because the cat would destroy it! So, I took that idea and ran with it for this card.
With most cards, I start with my background. I cut a 4″ x 5.25″ panel, took the Circle Illusion Stencil, adhered it with Thermoweb Pixie Spray, and blended Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink. I then mounted it to a green mitten-patterned A2 panel (paper from the Lawn Fawn Snow Day Remix Collection) for some extra holiday feels.
For my images, I colored the sitting cat from Cattitude and only the tree from Love You More- Winter Frost (I masked off the couple trying to place the star). I then colored the images with alcohol markers and cut them out with my scan and cut. After cutting, I used Nuvo Drops (Rhubarb Crumble & Woodland Green) dots to add ornaments to the tree and let them dry. I also made an extra cut with my scissors to separate the cat’s legs so he looked like he was straddling the tree.
Once I adhered my cat to the tree, I used an Art Impressions Actions Wobbler to attach the tree to my card. That way, it would look like the cat is making it tumble over!
I added a sentiment strip saying “blame it on the dog” from the Cattitude set (I mean, how perfect of a sentiment for a card like this) and used some of the pawprint stamps for a little extra detail.
To finish my card off, I used some Woodland Green Nuvo Drops and placed them around the tree in the shape of paw prints!
