Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty!

I haven't strayed too far from the concept of the inspiration project as this die is perfect to use with cute critters! I started with a Pool Party card base and dry embossed it with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. A piece of the Pool Party checked design from the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper was adhered to a piece of Basic White and run through with the circles die from the Picture This Dies. I love the stitched edging that adds extra interest. I popped up the panel using Adhesive Foam Strips to provide lots of dimension.
I stamped the dog and cat in Early Espresso ink and coloured them with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers and fussy cut them on the line. As the cat is a little smaller, I stamped and coloured the present for him to peek over with the bow cut from the top and popped up in the middle. I added some retired Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the Santa hat and popped it up on the dog. The greeting from Sweet Little Stockings stamp set was stamped in Real Red ink and then cut into pieces and arranged in the largest circle. I adhered the small circles of fairy lights flat onto the card base. I originally started out with the fairy lights design for the background, but it was a bit too busy, but it meant I had the circles cut ready to go.
