Waltzing Mouse Stamps Christmas Card Challenge August
In the lane snow is glistening ...
In the meadow we can build a snowman....
and then I noticed the sleigh bells strung up on the fence. It seemed perfect, and I wouldn't be surprised if whoever designed this stamp had this song in mind.
The image was stamped with Versamark and embossed in black.
As usual I looked through my vast selection of designer papers and decided I would rather create my own background. A gingham would have been perfect (Gingham and Co is on my wish list) but I compromised on a simple red tartan, stamped with the narrower plaid builder from the Pic-Nic Patterns set using Fired Brick Distress Ink.
I always like to decorate my envelopes so I used this little snowman stamp from the WMS Cottage Christmas set.
I've used sketch WMSC112 as inspiration. I think the die cut holly leaves really set off the image, and I wouldn't have thought of using them if it hadn't been for the sketch. Thanks Mona !
