Waltzingmouse Stamps Christmas Waltz

November 17th, 2010 · 24 Comments

Waltzingmouse Christmas Waltz

Doing a little Christmas waltzing with the friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps! I started out with a sketch from SplitcoastStampers (SC304) and decided to make the little Christmas tree from the Nutcracker Sweet stamp set my focal point. The design on the tree reminded me of the plaid paper in BasicGrey’s Jovial paper pad, so that had to be included on the card!

The image was colored with Copic markers and embellished with a yellow rhinestone brad. I sponged green ink around the tree while the ivory card stock was still inside the Nestabilities die and matted with a brown oval. The small strip of Musical Background was stamped with brown ink on ivory card stock and adhered over the crochet trim with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!
