Doodlebug Kitty Cut Files with Anita

Cats have always been a big part of our lives so I wasn't surprised when my oldest daughter asked  me to make a kitty cat card for her birthday on Christmas Eve.  To be honest, I thought the idea was just purrrfect!

I stayed with a simple design as I knew the kitty cuts would take up most of the card.
Each card was layered with patterned paper from the Fairy Tales collection and a machine stitched border around the edge to hold everything in place and add that little something extra.

And because those kittens are just too cute 
I created a layout of my cat sleeping underneath our Christmas tree before it was decorated.

I thought it would be fun to change up the traditional Christmas colors and bring in some orange. 

I began with a background using the Swiss Dots Petite Prints patterned paper for the border of my layout before using a single tangerine mini doily cut in half and tucked underneath the edge of the white cardstock to balance out the color over the entire layout.

The addition of the Milk and Cookies Collection patterned paper behind the photo was to bring in more of the traditional Christmas colors.

To add a touch of dimension I placed adhesive foam behind my stars which gave that hint of a shadow giving them a look of floating.
