It’s House Mouse. How could it not be cute!
I received a little package in the post this week from the wonderful people at 1-2-3 Stitch out in Utah with some new goodies that I’d purchased. One was the cute House Mouse stamp that you see used here, and the second thing was the fabulous Memory Box New Castle die that I also used on this card. I won’t be pressed to admit if anything else was in the parcel though!!!
I did tell you it was cute, did I not? And I’ve got a few pics to share cause I like it so much.
The image is called Bootie Babies and I coloured it up with Prisma pencils and a bit of Frosted Lace Stickles. I think it’s a fantastic image that could be used for a number of occasions including Christmas, new baby, engagement or wedding. Of course, I bought it with Christmas in mind! The image was cut out with a Spellbinder’s Scalloped Oval die, threaded with thin white ribbon and embellished further with little drops of Liquid Pearls.
The card has no DP’s, only white cardstock which was embossed with a large holly leaves embossing folder from Cuttlebug and two smaller pieces were embossed with a Darice Snowflake folder. The edges were all dipped in Versamark ink and embossed with Tim Holtz Holographic powder. I covered a couple of small white card scraps with the Holographic embossing powder and then cut out the Memory Box snowflake and the EKSuccess corner pieces from that.
Here are a couple of close ups of the snowflake, above, and the bow I tied (with the Bow Easy, I’m not that good lol!), below. I also added a Stickled single white rose form WOC to finish it off.
As a final touch, I added some sparkly clear gems. And I almost forgot to say, the sentiment is from a free set from a UK card magazine.
