Here’s my card for today. I’m almost done with all my Christmas cards but I just can’t resist making this one. The colors are so happy! The mice are playing with faux snow on the stage. Here are the steps:

  1. Blend Festive Berry and Squeezed Lemonade distress inks on white cardstock. Die cut using the curtain die
  2. Stamp the “Happy Holidays” sentiment in the top center using black pigment ink
  3. Stamp the ornaments on watercolor paper, watercolor using distress inks. Fussy cut them out
  4. Stamp the mice and color them with Copic markers
  5. Fill in space with the Snow Pen to create snow falling effect. Let dry for 30 min then heat set the snow
