Pami is our lovely hostess this week and she has chosen the fab theme of ...
'Food and Drink'
My take on this theme is a chuckle at how we all go overboard and stuff ourselves silly during the Festive Season !!!! LOL Do you remember that gorgeous Pixie on my 'Autumn Leaves' Card. Well these are some other free digital stamps by the same artist David Parkins. They are called Fat Cat Fred Christmas Stamps. Click on my link and you can download them for free! They are SO cool !! The Sentiment came with the set also. I just love these cats!
The gorgeous paper was a freebie with magazine too. It's Nitwits and it has a lovely suede appearance to it which I love. I have used same layout that I seem to always use of late, with strip of card across, mainly because I wanted one of the cats to sit on top of it !! Some silvery ribbon from stash. The snowflake is a wooden one and I've covered it in Silver Stickles to tone with the ribbon. You can get the lovely wooden snowflakes from Handy Hippo. The stickled snowflake is lovely and glittery as is the pudding but can't capture it with the light. It was so hard to photograph this card!
The pudding sauce is a bit of a 'whiteout' I'm afraid. I used Souffle Whitener pen and then Kars glitter on top and it looks nice in real life but does not photograph well at all !!! I've added Star Dust Stickle to the glass of bubbly. I don't think my cutting out is very good which is reason why I don't do it very often!! I made this card as Christmas Card for a Male? Do you think it's masculine enough?
