Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop


Welcome to Mo's Dream Team's monthly blog hop where we are getting into the festive spirit and creating Christmas cards with animals on. Our Hostess with the Mostest this month the the gorgeous and talented Gretha and her BLOG is where all the fun begins. If you are already hopping along you should have landed here from Alice's Blog where I'm sure there was something gorgeous to see.


For my card I used the super cute Santa Cat and went with a more CAS approach as I've been seeing some stunning CAS cards on Pinterest lately. Well it started off CAS but I just couldn't help myself and threw on some flowers in the corners and some sparkly blue gems - it's hard to break some habits - LOL. I used a white pearlised vellum to emboss the pattern onto - so there's a wonderful sheen to the whole thing. I added some texture to the cat's Santa hat with liquid applique which pops up when heated. Then some star dust stickles went over the "fur" and around the edge of the card for that Christmas sparkle.

Oh I just realised my card is similar to the wonderful banner Jak created for this hop - it must have been my inspiration!

Now it's time to head on over and see what gorgeousness Mina has for you. 

Here's the full hop list in case you get lost along the way - the links are on my left sidebar under Mo's logo.
