Ornament Christmas Cards

Hi, guys!  Today's cards are similar, but the ornaments I made were different.

I have a lot of friends who love their kitties, and so I made this card with them in mind. Many cats love to check out the Christmas tree and have adventures.  I fell in love with this stamp and thought this would be a fun way to use it.

Stamps: Stampendous, Stampin' Up
Ink: Distress Ink, Memento Black
Misc.: 3" Circle Punch, Ribbon, Copic Markers, Corner Rounder

This made me laugh and recall the cat I had for nearly 13 years.  Emily loved to sit under the tree and bat the ornaments. I would put soft ones, and ones with bells that couldn't be broken along the bottom, so she could enjoy them.  Emily was NOT a climber and couldn't care less about the rest of the tree.  It was fun to hear the bells in the morning.

The ornament on this next tree was made by paper folding.  It is hard to see in the picture, but the star is actually three dimensional.  I learned this technique from Jennifer McGuire in her Holiday Boot Camp Class last year.  If you are looking for a fun class to inspire you for Christmas card making or other fun classes on card making, I highly recommend you take one of these great classes.

Stamps: Paper Angel, Stampin' Up
Paper: Gina K Designs, Cosmo Cricket
Ink: Stampin' Up, Distress Ink
Misc.: Ribbon, Corner Rounder

I thought I would share the fun stamp I am using on the back of my cards this year. I got this fun fruitcake stamp from Viva Las Vegas Stamps.

Hope your day is a great one!  Hope you find a few moments in the day to do something you love!

Until next time!

Oh if you could see my cat! She sleeps under our tree the moment it goes up. She loves it there...I wonder why cats love Christmas trees so much. Fabulous cards! Love the coloration and the images are wonderful! I wish you the merriest Christmas ever!!!

I love the kitty ornament! It also reminds me of a cat I used to have. She too would love to take a swipe at the ornaments at the bottom of the tree. The first year I had her I didn't even think about glass ornaments at the bottom of the tree! Well, it only took a couple of broken glass ornaments for me to get the idea...I moved the glass up and the non-breakables down.
