You probably know that I’m a huge fan of the cute mischief Newton designed by Newton’s Nook Designs and love to color him like my kitties. And so I just couldn’t choose any purr-fect character to put on this card! LOL!!!

I mixed and matched a few fun products creating a window scene on this clean and simple project. First of all, I stamped with a copic friendly black ink a cute kitty from Newton’s Curious Christmas and the city skyline from Snow Globes Scenes stamp sets. Then I colored everything with copic markers, fussy cut right against the stamp lines and colored the trimmed edges with a black marker to hide any imperfection. I also prepared the snowy sky background directly on my A2 size card base using a few blue shades of copic markers and started assembling everything. In case you’re interested, I’m leaving all the exact colors I used here at the bottom of this post. I added a bit of dimension with a foam tape to the layout and simply stamped the sentiment from Sentiment Of The Season set with the same black ink I used before along with Santa’s sleigh that comes with Snow Globes Scenes stamp set. Of course, I just couldn’t skip a few clear sequins and a shimmer pen as a finish touch.

  2. I love everything about your card! The soft blues, the slope of snow. The large cat, Santa and his reindeer. So much imagination going on. Thanks for sharing such a fun card!

  3. This card is so beautiful! I love the kitty watching the whole city and waiting for Santa! Thank you so much for featuring our products on the Advent Calendar!
