Santa Paws is Coming to Town
by Leigh

It's my turn again to share a project and this time I've got a card featuring Santa Paws from my new Christmas Collection!  Isn't he the sweetest festive kitty you ever did see🎅🏻
He's now on FLASH SALE for 25% off until midnight tonight pacific time🎅🏻

I printed Santa Paws and 5 copies of the holly on Crafter's Companion Spectrum Noir premium smooth white cardstock and fussy cut out leaving a white border.  Then layered onto black cardstock and fussy cut out again leaving a narrow black border.  This was done to all except one of the sprigs of holly.

 I coloured him with Copics:
Kitty - Y11, 13, 17, E13, E40 and R00
Eyes - BG02, 05, 07
Santa suit - R22, 24, 27, 29 and 39
Suit Fur - N0, 2 and 4
Holly and Berries - YG06, 09, G28
Highlights - White Dylusions paint pen

For lots of magical sparkle I used Diamond Stickles glitter glue on the coat's fur and holly leaves. 
Viva Pearl Magic Transparent White was applied to all the berries for a touch of shimmer and dimension.

Santa Paws is layered onto a panel of white cardstock embossed with a Cuttlebug "Christmas Countdown" embossing folder.  I applied Fired Brick Distress Ink to the edges of the panel and for even more magical shimmer I applied clear Wink of Stella to the embossed design.

I matted the embossed panel onto black cardstock then dark red cardstock and everything is mounted onto a folded card made from white cardstock.  Red glitter glue was applied to the red cardstock border.  Santa Paws is adhered in place with pop dots as well as the holly sprig.  The other 4 holly sprigs embellish the corners and adhered in place with dabs of Scotch Quick Dry adhesive.
