Christmouse Caroller


Over at The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up it is the midway point of our challenge. That means it is the turn of the Merry Maidens to share some more fabulous Christmas cards.

This paper pack Merry ChristMOUSE designed by Decosse's Dynamite Doodles is up for grabs to the lucky winner who follows the optional twist to feature a mouse on your card.

The Sponsor for this challenge is Hetty Clare Art who is offering the fabulous prize of 2 digital images from their store.

The image I have chosen to work with is Christmouse Caroller.
I thought it would make a great scene and when I saw the Starry Sky paper in the Merry ChristMOUSE pack I knew it would be absolutely perfect.

I coloured the image using Promarkers and a gold metallic marker and fussy cut. I added some Stickles glitter glue to the snowdrift and the fur trim on the hat.

I printed the digital paper onto glossy photo paper. I find the colours always come out so much better than using a matte cardstock. This paper was simply added to the card blank leaving just a thin white border.

I created a snowdrift at the bottom using some really glittery thick paper and cut this in a rough wave shape. This allowed me to place the mouse image in a dip popped up on some thin foam pads. The Christmas tree is a sticker.

The sentiment is a cardstock sticker and in the background there are an assortment of snowflake stickers and little dots of silver glitter glue to add some sparkly stars.

I do hope you will take part in our challenge and look forward to seeing your creations.
