I had the idea for this card in my head since I got that Lawn Fawn leafy tree backdrop die quite some time ago. Now it finally came into fruition.
I colored the kitty with distress inks Scattered straw and Wild honey. The lights are colored with Zig clean color real brush markers. I haven't been able to get them to work very well lately. I have tried several watercolor papers but can't really get the color to move. So, I went back to distress inks which worked as I wanted. The lights in the trees are cut from the kitty image (just remove the kitty) and placed in the tree.

I cut the tree out of plain white cardstock and I used a patterned paper from Panduro as the backdrop. The snow is a Lawn Fawn stitched hillside border. The sentiment is white heat embossed on black cardstock cut with flag ends.
I cut a piece of transparency in A2 size and then mounted the hill, frame, kitty and lights on top of that. Then flipped it around to add doubled up foam tape. I used a power tool on the sides so that the sequins and stars would stick as little as possible to the sides. I placed all the shaker material inside the frame, removed the release paper and placed the background on top.
