Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas

I have always wanted to try a Reflection technique and had this idea in my head right away when I saw this super cute Hero Arts stamp!! But.. I can't believe how long it took me to make this card!!

This is one of the cards for my upcoming "Cute Christmas" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile in Sunnyvale, CA. We will make three cards in this class, all different designs. This class is scheduled for:

Thursday, December 3rd, 11 am to 2 pm
Thursday, December 3rd, 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Sunday, December 6th, 12 pm to 3 pm

Please bring your Cuttlebug (if you have one), foam tape and your favorite adhesive to the class. All other supplies will be provided.

$30, 10 participants max

Class Kits are available until December 6th, $35 each.

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for the class and/or purchase your kit/s.

This card measures 6" x 6".

Mouse stamp by Hero Arts, F5279 Dancing Mouse.. Dancing Mouse, hmmmm.. I thought he looked more like a Skiing Mouse ;-) I used my plastic sheet from my stamp positioner to stamp the reverse image. This cutie was colored with Copics. I colored one extra, cut him out and popped up for dimension. Ovals were cut with Spellbinders Nestabilites. I sponged inside of the ovals and stamped snowflakes on the top part.

Basic Grey designer paper. Sentiment and the snowflake stamps are from JustRite A Merry Little Christmas Set. Spellbinders Build A Snowflake. Fiskars Border Punch. Crystal Stickles.

All the supplies used to design this card are available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. If you do not live in the area please call the store at 408-736-9151 to place your order over the phone.
