Mouseeey Seasons Greetings

Hey, made this card today; after a hectic week at uni it was nice to do some craft :)

I coloured this little cutie using promarkers to fit the Crimbo Crackers colour combo challenge. I used glamour dust for the snow. I cut and embossed him using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Big Scalloped Squares set. I then edged the image using Brilliance pearlescent poppy ink.

I used the sketch challenge from Christmas Card Challenges for the layout of my card. I chose two papers, red and beige, for the backing of my card; I also edged my card with poppy ink. I then chose a red snowflake paper for the length of the card and edged this using brown card. For the width of the card, I chose a brown and white snowflake paper and edged this with copper card. I attached these on along with the image and added embellishments to finish.

I used a 'Seasons Greetings' sentiment from mums stash (hehe thanks!) and also a brown bow. I used the Spellbinders Shapeabilities create a flake one set to create the snowflakes. I embossed these using Stamp-n Stuff red dragon, Heat It Up gold, Allnight Media satin pearl and Ranger copper powders. I raised these up to add extra dimension. To finish, I used brown and red gems in the centres of the snowflakes and on the bottom of the card.
