Fa la la Merry Mice

The heat has finally broken! It rained all day yesterday,rain that was sorely needed. Environment Canada announced yesterday that July was the hottest on record, and August will probably be the same. We didn't need Environment Canada to tell us that! I'm back to making Christmas cards today, giving you a sneak peak of another card in the new catalogue - "Merry Mice". I just love those little critters (on paper only)- they're so cute!

This 5 by 5" Garden Green card is layered with Whisper White, and then 3 different patterns from the "Warmth & Cheer" DSP stack.  A 1" Cherry cobbler ribbon is placed over middle of the card to hide the seams

The image is stamped with Black Memento and coloured with ink pads and a blender pen.  It is trimmed, the corners rounded, and then matted with Cherry Cobbler card stock.  A piece of dazzling diamond glimmer paper, die cut with the retired adorning accents die was adhered to the bottom of this piece.

Dazzling diamonds were added to various parts of the mouse as well as on the snowflakes and under his feet.  Wink of Stella added some glam to the mouse's nose, ears and the book he is holding.

This image piece is adhered to the card front using dimensionals.

For the sentiment, first a 2 1/2" scallop circle punched out a cherry cobbler circle.  Dazzling diamonds glimmer paper was punched with the 1 3/4" punch and the two were adhered together.
"Fa la la", from "Seasonal Greetings" was die cut from Red Glimmer paper and adhered across the circle unit.
Hand cut  Ivy leaves  were clustered at the top of the sentiment  unit and the red  berries punched using the  Owl Builder punch.  I had a non SU die which I used to make the black musical notes.  Again, dimensionals were used to attach this unit to the card front.
