I started this card on Friday when I had friends over for stamp-n-play and finally finished it today. These mice are adorable, it took me a second to see that their tails spelled noel, too cute! I used the MS branch punch to give the image a 3-D effect ( I stamped weathered onto garden green paper before punching) and added stickles. I've entered this into the House Mouse challenge which is about friends, (need friends to spell noel, lol) Charisma Cardz challenge is with love @ Christmas, and Ellephantastic challenge which is blue. I've chosen a very blue card!

Stamp: House mouse noel, stampin up weathered
Paper: whisper white, basic black, pacific point, garden green
Ink: garden green
Other: prisma markers, stickles, MS branch and snowflake punch, cuttlebug snowdots embossing folder, ribbon


  1. The card is wonderful, what a clever 3-D effect you created. The background embossing folder with blue paper really pops the image. Super card!

  2. Dawn what a cute card! I probably wouldn't have noticed the tails spelling out Noel either until I started coloring it! I love the embossed background and using the branch punch was genius!

  3. VERY CLEVER use of the punches for the 3D look. Adorable HM card. Thanks so much for playing along with us at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge. :)
