Christmas always seems to creep up at top speed and so I decided to try and be ahead of the curve and so here is my first Christmas card for 2018.
I have used the mouse from the Berry Mice image from my A Very Mice Coloring Book. I colored her, yes her as her name is also Monica, with my Prismacolor Colored pencils on Canson Mi Tientes sand paper and then fussy cut her out.
I cut the gift that she is carrying out of Christmas patterned paper with a stitched hexagon die and applied the ribbon and bow with golden satin ribbon.
The top right hand corner is embellished with a flourish die cut done from DCWV metallic washi tape paper and I added the sentiment in the middle. The sentiment is white heat embossed on black cardstock and then cut out with a stitched circle die.
I created my scene on a card panel just slightly smaller than a regular A2 sized card which I embossed with a Darice snowflake embossing folder. I then adhered the card panel onto a cardbase to complete the card.
