Christmas mice.

I am getting carried away ~ another Christmas card!

I recently bought the Elegant Inspirations "Comfort Christmas" CD and I have fallen in love with it, the images are really cute and it takes no time at all to make a really lovely card, in my humble opinion!

I cut the Happy Christmas sentiment file from the CD which also boasts cutting files for non cartridge based cutting machines, how cool is that, did I mention I love the CD?!

I then made a double tent fold card and added the sentiment and some present backing paper to the back panel of the card.

The front panel also has a border of parcels at the bottom and then I used a Marianne (TM) die and cut the background for my darling little mice to sit on.

I added some holly punches in green to match with the scarf colour of the mouse and then added some glitter card berries to the holly...... and hey presto a lovely Christmas card.  Thank you  Elegant Inspirations!
