Have you started thinking about what you're going to need to make your Christmas cards this year? If not, here's an option because I'm not sure there's anything much cuter in this world than a mouse singing Christmas carols. Well, that's not true--there's actually MANY things cuter but this ranks up there in the top for sure. And if you haven't at least begun to THINK about Christmas cards yet, it's time to get a move on! *smile*
Step by Step
To complete this project, you'll need cardstock cut to the following sizes:
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Soft Sky (card base)
3-3/4" x 4-1/2" This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper
3-1/4" x 3-1/4" Sweet Sugarplum (to cut scallop circle)
3-1/4" x 3-1/4" Watercolor paper (to cut circle)
1/2" x 3-1/2" Watercolor paper (for sentiment flag)
1) Stamp mouse image on to watercolor paper using Basic Black ink. Use an aqua painter with Soft Sky, Marina Mist, So Saffron, Sweet Sugarplum, Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate inks to watercolor image. When dry, use Big Shot with Layering Circles framelits to cut watercolor image and scallop from Sweet Sugarplum. Adhere together.
2) Lightly sponge This Christmas DSP with a Stampin' Sponge and Soft Sky ink. Adhere to card base. Stamp sentiment on to 1/2" x 3-1/2" watercolor paper. Clip a "v" into right end. Adhere to card front. Adhere mouse piece to card front.
3) Wrap ribbon around card front, tying in a knot at top left corner. Use fine-tip glue to adhere sequins.
