Christmas Cookies

Over at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge,  it's all about the food this week.  The challenge is to feature on your card, any kind of food that might be eaten at Christmas.  Food such as Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, turkey, candy canes, etc.  Oh what a yummy challenge this is going to be. 

Once again this is a perfect opportunity for me to use another one of my new House Mouse stamps, surprised?  Didn't think so....me neither.  I thought I might try and score the edge of my card today after seeing a couple of pretty cards over at Di's blog.  The stamp I chose is quite large and not wanting to take away from the image, I kept the card simple.

Looks like Mudpie and Mussy are pretty full after filling their tummy's with Christmas cookies.  I just can't get enough of these adorable mice.  It's a good thing the postman is going to be bringing me some new stamps soon but I'll leave that for another post.

The stamp I used is from House Mouse and it's called Christmas Cookies Eaters (Mudpie and Muzzy).  I used my Fiskars trimmer, slipped in a scoring blade and scored the front of the card on all four sides.  I matted the image with Cherry Cobbler cardstock and used a Stampin Up, Very Merry stamp from the Short and Sweet stamp set for the sentiment.  The ink used on the sentiment stamp was also Cherry Cobbler.  The image was coloured with Copic markers and Crystal effects was applied to the decorations on the cookies.

  2. What a cute image - love HM ones - thanks for joining in my CHNC challenge 31 with this yummy card - hope to see you again soon. x

  3. How adorable! And isn't the scoring simples but so effective - I'll be doing more of this for sure, it takes away some of the bare space without overloading it - if that makes sense?! You'll know what I mean even if no-one else does - also I owe you an email, life is manic right now but will explain more in an e! Di xx

  4. I love these cute little mice too. A great card! Kate x

  5. this is absolutely gorgeous. Off to look for this stamp NOW!
    BTW, I saw a video the other day which showed someone just using a stylus instead of a scoring blade in her Fiskars cutter - just say'n in case you ever find you have lost the scorer blade!!

  6. I just use an embossing tool to run around the edges of nesties die cuts (still left within the die at that point)now instead of the palaver of using different plates and a tan mat after die cutting. Cuts a corner/circle/oval or so off the time. And time is what we crafters need! Di xx
