Jane’s Doodles – Christmas Blessings

Hi again! I’m popping in to share that I’m over on the Jane’s Doodles blog today as well. I’m sharing this sweet Christmas card featuring the Merry Mice digital stamp.

I started by choosing one of the mouse images and colored it with my copic markers. Then I trimmed it out and set it aside. For my background, I cut a piece of kraft cardstock and inked it up with some brown dye ink and a blending brush. Then I smooshed some in on my glass mat, watered it down and flicked it on the panel. I also splattered some gold watercolor on the panel for some shimmer.

Next, I die cut a tag from the Trinty Stamps Holiday Tag die set and inked it up with the same brown ink. Then I die cut a Trinity Stamps Nested Heart and embossed it with a Pink & Main houndstooth embossing folder. I inked the edges of the heart and flicked some gold watercolor on it to tie things together.

For assembly, I added the kraft panel to a white card base with liquid glue and the heart to the tag as well. Then I popped the mouse and sentiment up with foam squares. I threaded some gingham ribbon through the tag hole and tied it with baker’s twine. Then I popped the tag up with foam tape.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the mouse’s nose and the ornaments on her tree too. I thought the sentiment was a little stark white against everything else so I just used the ink already in my brown blending brush to tone it down a bit.
