Spooky Cat, Not Spooky at All!

  This is another card we did in my Holiday Card Class this month. I love the cat punch, and check out the new Black Crochet Trim. This is a pretty easy card to put together. We have a Black card base, with a 2 1/2″ piece of the Spooky Night Designer Paper, (don’t forget to add your Vintage Crochet Trim) on the left and a 1 3/4″ piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock that was…

You can spread the trim out and it gives a whole different look.   Again, the sentiments are from the So Many Shells stamp set. I added 3 of the Black Rhinestones which will be available…
