Deck the Halls

Deck the Halls

This is another project from my recent Christmas stamp-a-stack class.  There's two things I especially like about this card: it features non-traditional Christmas colors, which I always enjoy, and...THAT MOUSE!  When I saw the Merry Mice set in the Holiday catalog, it jumped right to the top of my "must have or I might die" list.  All the little mice are just too cute!

(On a side note, since we're talking about mice...I saw one in my house recently and now I'm hoping maybe he was just looking for something to decorate??!!)

Step by Step

To complete this project, you'll need cardstock cut to the following sizes:

5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Rich Razzleberry (card base)

4" x 5-1/4" Tempting Turquoise

3-7/8" x 5-1/8" Rich Razzleberry

2" x 2-3/4" Whisper White

2" x 2" Daffodil Delight

2" x 2" Watercolor paper

Scrap Whisper White for sentiment

1)  Mask off other two mice from this image and stamp on to watercolor paper using Basic Black ink.  Use a blender pen with Smoky Slate, Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight to color image.  Use the 1-1/2" circle punch to punch out image.  Use the Big Shot with the Layering Circles framelits to cut a scalloped circle from the Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Use the Big Shot with the Holly embossing folder on the 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

2)  Use the striped stencil from the Seasonal Decorative Masks, along with the sponge brayer and Rich Razzleberry ink to create background on 2" x 2-3/4" Whisper White cardstock.  Use the Project Life Corner punch to round the bottom two corners.  Adhere Daffodil Delight circle, then mouse circle onto striped piece.

3)  Adhere Tempting Turquoise on to card base.  Adhere embossed Rich Razzleberry over Tempting Turquoise.  On the back side of striped piece, but two dabs of adhesive.  Press ribbon end in to one adhesive dab, wrap around front, and press other end in to second adhesive dab.  Adhere over embossed piece using Stampin' Dimensionals in top left corner.   Use a small piece of ribbon to tie a knot on ribbon front.  Stamp sentiment on Whisper White scrap using Rich Razzleberry ink.  Clip a "v" in to left side.  Adhere to card front in bottom right corner.
