Hmmmm, not keen!

It took a while to make this, and involved a lot of measuring, scoring & cutting, and now that it's done I'm not too keen on it.

glare off the flash! grrr, this is the best pic of the front I could get, sorry...

The image is a stamp I bought off ebay a couple of years ago, I stamped it twice, coloured both with promarkers, then cut out the cat and pot on one of them so that I could 3D them onto the other. I added pearls and a tiny gold star for the trees decorations.
The hanging greeting is from a Dovecraft clear stamp set.

here's another, moving around the card...

and a pic of the other greeting inside (stamped using a different Dovecraft clear stamp set), pic shows the folding too...

I might not be too keen on this card myself, but someone may like it, so i'll enter it into the challenges anyway ;)

We're allowed 3 entries each week with Charisma Cardz so this is my 2nd (the first being my stack of gifts christmas card)
I think Charisma will be inundated with entries this week as the theme is 'christmas crafting' so I'm guessing most will have 3 crimbo cards/projects they can enter!

I'd also like to enter it into the challenge at Polka Doodles, the challenge being to use a fancy or interesting fold on our cards.

ok, that's me done, off to bed now. Nite Nite! xx


  1. Wow Jo, this is an amazing card - all those folds!! You're a much braver woman than me, I'd get completely lost trying to make this, lol! And the cat is ever so cute!!

  2. I love the kitty !! Fab card . thanks for joining the Polkadoodles Challenge this week ! lis-m x

  3. Wow! Totally Wow! I would have given up at layering the cat and pot! ;)

  4. oooh, Jo, this is so much fun! love the 3-d effect, and what a cute image! thanks for playing with the Charisma Gals! :) good luck!

  5. Oh this is brilliant, I love the folds, and yes I can see why it took so much work to get all those folds just right, it is tricky work and to be honest I would not even know where to start let alone be able to finish it as well as this one, so well done you!
