CAS Cute Critter Christmas
Having fun with designing and this card was created using the Splitcoaststampers’CC538 Color Challenge (even included the "dessert" element of Stripes :-)) along with the CAS338 “Cute Critters” Challenge and since it is a Christmas card, one of my August designs for the CCC15 Christmas Card Challenge.
I am so excited!! I was able to find this House Mouse Designs® by Stampendous®! stamp at a recent clearance sale and have a few friends that just love "cutsey"images :-) I think you could use this image for encouragement, winter birthday as well as Christmas...what do you think?
Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above links to check out their fantastic galleries!
To create this card:
Color the image using an AquaPainter™ with Melon Mambo Classic Ink for the scarf, Island Indigo Classic Ink for the snow and a Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker for the mouse as well as the shadows.
Stamp the sentiment from Wondrous Wreath using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, add a few shadows to the letters with the Sahara Sand marker and add a bit of splatter with the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Island Indigo Classic Ink (stamping off before stamping onto the panel).
Cut the image out with the Big Shot™ and the smallest Envelope Liner Framelit™ (also cutting the liner from Melon Mambo cardstock as well- splitting this piece in half).
Mount the focal image onto the split Melon Mambo die cut piece to create a tag, mount the “tag” using Stampin’ Dimensionals® onto the embossed Island Indigo cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock, trim once more and mount onto the Whisper White card base.
Create a Melon Mambo cardstock bow using the Bow Builder Punch and add the Designer Silver Button with Island Indigo Baker’s Twine to finish off the card.
