Christmas Easel Card - Mistletoe & Mice

Evening folks

Just thought I'd share the Christmas card I made for my wonderful hubby, which I've only just got around to photographing.  I promise this will be my final Christmas card for 2009.  This is only the second easel card that I've made, and I found it really tricky to get a picture of.  I really enjoyed making it though, so I guess I'm likely to make more of them, and with any luck the pics will get better. 

The stamp is Mistletoe and Mice by Gillian Roberts, and is on sale with 20% off at the moment at Quixotic Paperie.  The paper is MME from the Colorful Christmas range.  The mistletoe embellishments I drew and cut out, as I didn't have a die to use.  It was a bit fiddly, but I've already ordered a die ready to use with this stamp for next year.  Mistletoe berries were made with my usual method of waxing the back of a piece of card, punching out a circle, and then embossing it in circular movements from the back.  Colouring, was of course done with Copics, and the sentiments were computer generated.

Paul was really pleased with the card, and laughed out loud at the added sentiment at the bottom - well, you have to make these things personal, don't you, lol.

That's it for tonight, thanks for looking
