We 3 Mice

      One more card inspired by a progressive challenge, this time at Imagine That!   Aren't these kingly mice adorable?  

     I colored with my ProMarkers and gel pens, then cut the image with an Unbranded die.  I inked the edges of the die cut to give it a bit more definition.  I dug through my Christmas dies, found the nativity by Die-namites and cut brown CS for the background.

     Actually, I cut one from brown CS and another from black CS because I wasn't sure which one I was going to use on this card but I'll show you what I did with the black one at the bottom of this post.

     I made one of my signature, hand-sewn bows, dyed it brown with a ProMarker, and used it for embellishment.  One more Christmas card for this year's stash.


     Oh, I nearly forgot that I promised to show you what I did with the black nativity die cut.  A second card for the Christmas stash, quick and easy, and all scraps.


     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Two fabulous cards!! I really like the second with the black die cut; quick and easy and uses scraps!! The first one is very cute; the die cut nativity is a perfect backdrop to that sweet image! Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
