Christmas Coffee Cats

A super cute Christmas kitty & coffee card using some bright colors & cheerful paper. Perfect card for a friend w/ cats or who loves their coffee.

A big congrats to Dawn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS879)! She has a wonderful little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the angled layout & coffee theme, but used different images & dies, different colors & made mine a Christmas card.

After coloring & die cutting the kitty, coffee cups & Christmas tree cupcake, I die cut a lg white panel then used a scallop frame die to cut the bottom off at an angle. I added a piece of colorful Christmas paper on the bottom section. I wanted a little more of the red scallop frame (the same die I used for the angled edge) to show a bit more, so I used a small corner rounder on all the corners. In case you didn’t know about this, here’s a little tip for coloring in small dots like on my cupcake & the coffee cups. When those dots are little & in a sea of the opposite color, it can be hard to keep that color from bleeding into those little dots. I figured out that if I color in the little dots first, then go over them w/ a clear Glaze pen (Sakura), it helps keep the larger colored area from seeping into those dots.

The kitty & cups were popped up a bit for a little dimension. Here are the Copics I used:
