Fat Cat Steals a Present

     Switching from Autumn/Halloween back to Christmas once again, I want to share a perfect image which could easily be my own Honey cat absconding with one of the presents from under the tree!  Look at the expression on that face.  Does that say totally self-satisfied or what?  I know absolutely that expression means, "It's the biggest one so it must be mine!"  lol


     The image (stamped and sent to me by a friend so I don't know the artist) is colored with ProMarkers, then cut into a square, and corner punched with a Fiskars punch.  I cut and punched some scrap red CS for the mat.  I found that scrap of red and white dp in my stash of Christmas papers and added it to the card front at an angle.  I layered on the matted image then hand cut the sentiment, matted it with another scrap of red CS, and hand cut it again before adding it.

     The only embellishment needed was that bow made from sparkly ribbon and adhered to the upper corner.  A pretty simple card with a masculine flavor to it and most of it was done with scraps!
