Hi Crafty Friends! Tammy here with a card featuring one of my favorite’s from the new release, Merry Mice.
Today, I am going to walk you through how I made this simple, but sweet holiday card.
First, I started by trimming a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2″. Next, I blended Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress oxide inks to create the background. I thinned out some white acrylic paint with water, and using a paintbrush, flicked it on the card to create a snowy background.
Next, I die cut white cardstock using the Winter Woods Overlay Die and falala word from the Christmas Words #1 Die. I then inked the falala cut out with Festive Berries Distress oxide ink and set aside to dry for a minute. in the meantime, I cut a snowy hill from white cardstock, using the Hill and dale Die. I added glitter to the trees, the snowy hill, and falala cut out for a touch of sparkle.
Next, I stamped my images from Merry Mice and colored with Copic markers. I added white accents to the images with a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen. I then cut out my stamped images using the Merry Mice Die.
Now, I can begin to assemble my card! First, I placed the snowy hill, by lining it up with the bottom of my inked background. Then, I layered the Winter Woods Overlay on top using foam tape for dimension. Next, I arranged the caroling mice and other stamped images on my card, and attached using foam tape. I stamped some music notes onto inked background using black Momento ink.
Finally, I stamped the season’s greetings sentiment from O Christmas Tree Stamp set onto a black cardstock strip, and embossed with white embossing powder. I glued the sentiment strip onto my card. I completed my card by adding the falala sentiment right over the season’s greetings strip. You’re done!!
