Merry Christ'mouse'!

Well, it had to be done.....it's October and I'm posting my first Christmas card. Yep, I've started production ahead of the game, and you can guarantee I'll still be late mailing them out! It's the thought that counts.

I do love these two enthusiastic little Carol singers, so here we go.........Merry Christ'mouse'!.........


This card let me tell ya, was a lot of work. I kept things simple with the background (white on white) due to the fair amount of detail in the image, but there's a whole load of texture going on.

The image is from Pollycraft and coloured with Copic's. There are various other products added including pearls, glitter on the Christmas tree trim and Flowersoft on the ground..........



There's also Liquid Applique on their clothes and hats to give that nice 'poofy' look..........



I then added a scattering of snowflakes (cut from glitter card stock using two different sized punches) and these sit nicely against the snowflake embossed background......which of course you can't see from the photograph............

A final addition of ribbon from my stash.....mission complete!

The layout is inspired by the current sketch over at Pink Ink Sketch Challenges, so of course this will be entered there.

That's it from me, so have a great day
Jayne.x.
