Meowy Christmas Shaker Card
Hello, Friends! This whimsical little Meowy Christmas Shaker Card features Stamperia’s Make a Wish Paper Collection and some lovely goodies from Reneabouquets. I made it for our sweet next door neighbors who are cat parents. Their kitties are featured regularly on Instagram, so I thought they should be represented on their Christmas card this year.
This is a pretty basic 5″ x 7″ top fold card with a kraft cardstock base. Machine stitch around the maid paper panel. Add a decorative stitch on the border accent and you are half way home. Back a Reneabouquets Holly Berry Wreath with clear cardstock and foam tape, fill it with a mix of buttons, beads and sequins and that job is done, too. Die cut the cant directly from the paper pad using a circle die. Then center it and adhere on the back of the wreath.
Heat emboss the chipboard sentiment with Antique Gold Embossing Enamel. Then adhere it in the center of a really big Prima blossom. Tuck in a pretty organza bow, some Christmas Greenery and holly leaves. The vintage wooden candy cane came from a booth at a local flea market. I wish I had a hundred of these sweet embellishments but, alas, this was the very last one in my stash.
A Peek Inside
Finish the card with a designer paper panel and a pocket, of course!
Then tuck in a couple of chocolate snowmen and a little note card. There’s something joyous about these vibrant, non-traditional papers that speaks to my love of color, pattern and design. And above all, it was fun to make!
Right now I’m working on the next Button Farm Club Card Kit, which will be released next week. So if I’m a little bit absent, you will know it is because I am busy at my work desk, editing photos, making video tutorials and writing out directions for that project. I can’t wait to show you what I’m up to!
Friday is the date for the very last Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop of 2020! And after that I will be doing a year-end round up of my favorite projects from 2020. This tough old year is waning, and a bright New Year is on the horizon. That is something to celebrate!
Thanks for stopping by!

I have a sister who would really appreciate this cat card!! Love the wreath idea. My favorite image is that patchwork poinsettia…so cute!! There’s a precious Christmas cat image in Stamperia’s Pink Christmas. Just recently, I’ve seen cats featured in a couple of brand new collections. Thanks for all this lovely creative Christmas joy!
This is such a cute and festive little card! I’m sure your cat lover friends will adore this card! I’ll have to check out this collection. And luv all your beautiful embellishments on this one. Take care and can’t hardly wait to see what that new kit will be! Hugs, Suzy Q
Kathy, this is just an absolute precious card! Your neighbors will be thrilled with it. I just love all of the pretty colors and that darling little kitty cat image on the front and the little kitty angels on the inside. We are cat people too as well as dogs. Someone told them that if they got to our farm they would have a home forever. So they came! LOL Thank you for sharing! Hugs!
As always, love your card!! All the details are beautiful – Merry Christmas to you and your family, and hopefully 2021 will be a much better year for all.
Beautiful card! Love the kitty cats and of course the inside with all the treats. Can’t wait to see the Button Farm Kit. If you don’t mind me asking what photo editing program do you use and is it difficult to learn?
Love this card Kathy. I surely do love the cats on this one. As always your cards are just simply stunning. Be safe & TYFS
So pretty and love the cute cats.
Once again, most beautiful and love the kitties as well as the panel with lots of goodies. The papers are so bright and festive. Love it!!
Gorgeous my friend! Merry Christmas from my house to yours!
