Authentique Nostalgia Meowy Christmas Card Folio

Authentique Nostalgia Meowy Christmas Card Folio with Tutorial Links

Hello, Friends!  Happy Christmas Eve Day!  A few weeks ago, I shared a tutorial for THIS adorable “Santa Paws” card folio tutorial.  Today, kitties take the spotlight with this Authentique Nostalgia Meowy Christmas Card Folio.

One of the things I love the most about this festive collection is that it works for people or for pets.  And who wouldn’t love to find this little basket of Christmas kitties under the tree?  I’ve adorned this card with one of my favorite holiday ribbons: Vintage Christmas Plaid.  To add just a touch of holiday sparkle, I topped my double loop bow with some Gold Metallic String and some miniature holiday ornaments.   To create this feline version of the Santa Paws  folio, you can follow the same YouTube video.  Just switch out the dog images and sentiments for cat images and sentiments.

Nostalgia Meowy Christmas Card Folio: A Peek Inside

This 5″ x 7″ x 1/2″ card folio is filled with feline fun!  Pockets, folio inserts, hidden pull out tags and flaps make opening this card as much fun as opening a Christmas present.

The flap mechanism on the top of the card opens to reveal this shaped pocket filled with little treats.

This would be a great spot to add a personal message, a photo or even a gift card. And do you spy the adorable snowman chocolate peeping around the corner?

The large pocket on the bottom is decorated with a fussy cut Santa image and some cute hinge stickers.  A mini candy cane fits perfectly into the pocket.

This 6″ x 4 1/4″ accordion style folio has a sweet magnetic flap closure.  You can learn how to build it HERE.   Just switch out dog images for cat images and you’re all set!

I’ve added some little tuck spots inside this festive folio.

If you did not want to use magnets here, you could always tie the folio with more of that pretty Vintage Plaid Ribbon!

Now, I have some last minute Christmas preparations to attend to, so I’d best be off.  But before I go, I’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas.  May peace, joy, love, family and friendship fill your heart with good cheer.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy

    Kathy, I never, EVER, tire of your wonderful cards, folios, anything you make! This is the sweetest folio for a cat lover (which I am–at least my two kitties) and reminds me of Christmas morning when Roger (big cat) spent three hours under our tree with all the gifts moved out of the way to make a place for him to sleep. I’m wondering now if a gecko got in on the tree! As always, I’m inspired by your creativity and wonderful design work! Gorgeous, my friend!

Just luv these images and sayings that go with these! Only picked up 1 page at a trade show last month! Silly me …

      Hi, Ina! The kitty images are in the Authentique Nostalgia Collection. This particular folio was made as a special order for one of my Etsy customers. You can always place a special order in my shop if you would like one. Thanks so much! Merry Christmas!
