Elzybells Mouse Bauble
Isn't he just the cutest chap you have ever seen ? This stamp from Elzybells Stamps is gorgeous.
To make this card I used :
Mouse Bauble stamp from Elzybells Stamps painted with distress inks. I covered the bauble in glossy accents to make it look like glass and then brushed some Stickles onto it. I didn't want it too sparkly and brushing it on with a paint brush gave it a little sparkle.
The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye "Be Merry by Zoe Pearn". I realised after sticking this paper to the card that it does actually say in the wording "Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse" ! Had I seen it before I would have made it more prominent - I'll do that on my next one !!
The dark red card is Core'dinations ColourCore cardstock. These are fantastic and I shall definitely buy another pack of these. The colours of them are so scrummy and are so versatile.
The holly leaves and berry brads are Making Memories Fa La La from CraftsULove and I have added some crystal Stickles to the leaves.
The buttons are from my stash.
