Anyhow, I've combined my Challenge card with my normal weekly Whimsy Inspiration card with you, so it's a joint post. :) All the links to the specific Whimsy products can be found below and the link to the general store is here.
Here's What I DidI covered the front of a 5" x 5" black card blank with some dark Christmas patterned paper.
The scruffy cat digi image was printed directly onto colouring card stock, and coloured with Copic pens. The coloured image was die cut into a hexagon and then added to a red mat, both were attached to the card front on an jaunty angle using foam pads. To embellish the card I die cut a poinsettia from pretty patterned paper, along with a few branches cut from green glitter card, which I glued in the top right corner of the topper.
To finish the card, I added a few gems and little red glitter glue to the branches, and to add a final touch I cut 2 corner pieces from red card then attached them to the top and bottom of the card front.
