May the Magic of Christmas Be Yours! card by designer Patty Folchert

Nothing says it’s the magical Christmas season like a cat tangled in Christmas lights! This super fun clear stamp set is from Hampton partnered with Art Impressions.

May the Magic of Christmas Be Yours! by Patty Folchert

I started by grabbing some Jillibean Soup Holly Berry Borscht papers, I chose some non-traditional colors: mint green, grey and black. First I stamped the cat image in black ink onto watercolor paper and let dry. Then I added the grey Jingle Bells paper as a mat onto the black card base and then using my sewing machine I stitched the border to add texture. Next I stamped the sentiment in black ink onto the “wish list” sticker from the same collection. 

I thought it would be fun to watercolor paint the image, I love how it turned out. I let the image dry and then fussy cut it out. 

Taking cues from the image I made a wide border strip and wrapped it in silver twine, adding the sticker tag with 3D pop up dots. I added the border strip to the card base with 3D foam dots as shown. Then I added the image with 3D foam dots as well. Last I added the “naughty” sticker at the top left as shown.

I hereby dedicate this card to my daughter’s cat Luna, she is always getting into mischief somehow.

Magical Greetings,

Patty Folchert
