Xmas Stocking Mice

My Candy is here.  I'm a new blogger - I'd like some new followers :-)

I made this Christmas card today after being inspired by several challenges (see below). 


I stamped the image in black on a white square, coloured with pencils, and mounted on a decorative red square.  I embossed a white panel with snowflakes, attached a strip of "Let it Snow" ribbon, and affixed to a white card base.  I affixed the mounted image to the card with foam tape and embellished with metallic holly leaves and clear gemstones.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamp:  Penny Black ("The Wonder" set of clear stamps)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Die:  Spellbinder Fleur de Lis Squares
  • Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Snowflakes
  • Cardstock:  Recollections     Card Base:  Domtar
  • Ribbon: Dollarama     Gems:  Kaisercraft
  • Sketch:  MFP Speedy TV (see below)
