Mice Misteloe Kisses

I LOVE this stamp and find it quite sad that I can only use it at Christmas!
I resisted going crazy and glittering up the jumpers this time though, and just did the holly berries and the ears...and a little bit on the felt reindeer and stars! I used the sketch on the Sweet Stop challenge blog.

The red ribbon is a crushed velvet texture, but unfortunately the camera doesn't seem to like it much and it makes it look wonky on the card!! I've given up trying to take the photo in a way that it doesn't do this and thought I'd just tell you all instead :)

I'm pleased I got a lot of dimensions into this card too :)

And here you can see the sparkles a bit better

Here's how I made it...
Card & Paper:
- Blue and Red paper are from Stampin Up Brights collection
- Patterned paper is from stash

- Image is a stamp by Gillian Roberts for Stampavie "Mistleoe and Mice"
- Stamped using Memento "Tuxedo black" and coloured with copics
- The ears & tails are stickled with "fruit punch", the holly berries have "xmas red" on them and the bow has "waterfall" on it.
- Sentiment is from a Lili of the Valley christmas sentiment set

Finishing touches:
- Blue backing card is embossed with divine swirls cuttlebug embossing folder.
- Image and sentiment are inked around the edge with memento "lady bug"
- Ribbon is from stash
- Felt stars are from John Lewis - I took the peg off the bottom one. The darker insides of the stars are stickled with "xmas red"
- Felt reindeer from Paperchase & dots stickled onto it are "xmas red" too.
- Holly leaves and berries are from Papermania "Adhesive Stones - evergreen" set. I found these when digging around!
- Image, backing paper and printed paper and backing paper cut out with nesties and cuttlebug.
