As promised, here's my third and final card for today and this is also my second entry at Less is More where the theme is 'Animal'.
I found this cute teeny tiny kitty in a stamp set which was free with a publication ages ago. He only measures one centimetre high...awwwww!
This card kind of evolved as I went along. I stamped this cute little guy on a scrap of white cardstock and coloured him in with ProMarkers. I knew I wanted to surround him with snow so I masked him off before using a snow stamp which was actually a little addition in a Christmas sentiment set. I wanted the snow to show up so I used silver pigment ink and then heat embossed with white powder. I then got the impression that this little chap needed some sort of ledge to lean on so I used a rectangular die to create a window. I popped the window up on 3D foam on a textured card base and added some Wink of Stella to his hat.
He looks like he's peering through a window from the cold outside, so perhaps the sentiment should read 'Let me in'! :D
I really love how this turned out, I love the tiny pop of colour against all the white and of course, some Christmas sparkle.
