I bought this french stamp recently of a kitty lying down and it looked so much like it had just done something bad that I had the idea for this Christmas card. What if a family had a nicely decorated mantlepiece. What if some bad kitty came by and knocked half the decorations off so it could lie there?
I started by stamping the kitty on a piece of cream cardstock (and realized that I needed to reink my stamp as it came out grey). I drew in the fireplace and coloured the bricks, then stamped and coloured the fire. I punched a few circles as ornaments and ripped them (to show they were broken) and added some glitter pen decorations on them. I put down some string and attached the stockings and punched some pine branches and glued them down.
