Feline Nativity

  This is the last day of the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop.
 Haven't played before but interested?
Click HERE.

     Feeling that I nearly cheated on yesterday's post because it only had one tiny cat in a die cut, I went a little crazy with die cut cats for this Christmas card.  For those of you who know me and the kinds of cards I enjoy making, you'll see right away that this is outside my "normal" creation.  Still, I do occasionally do cards that are filled with only die cuts so it's not a completely new venture.

Background is dry embossed with "Linen" folder
Manger & star cut with Die-versions die
Cats are cut with Poppy Stamps and Impression Obsession dies
Sentiment cut with Cheery Lynn die
Sparkle paper for manger is from Recollections


     That wraps up the Cat Lovers Hop for this year but I'm sure we'll all be hopping along next year at this same time.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Clever card with all of these adorable kitty die-cuts! Kiwi is here demanding some cuddle time so I have to type with one hand. Not very efficient but duty calls!

I love this so much, Connie!!! Prob the most creative take I've ever seen using cats on a worshipful Christmas card. "Oh come let us adore Him" say all the kitties. I'm so glad you shared this fabulous card!!!

Using lots of a die cuts on a card is a wonderful technique to deviate from coloring.
