Sending You Snow Kisses

Hello Friends,

I am going to share with you another card I made for the We Are Playing BINGO for the House Mouse Challenge #203 ~ The challenge:  Choose any line across, up, down or diagonal use those 3 items on your card/project.  It's okay to use more items, but at least three must be in a row or diagonal ~ that is the BINGO Challenge!

I choose the bottom row across for this challenge ~ Bakers Twine, Green and Use and Embossing Folder.  I chose to make a Christmas card this time:

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base.  Next I took a piece of green paper and embossed it with a Darice Snowflake Trim embossing folder and then I rubbed a Faber Castell white gelato over the raised snowflakes to make it stand out.  Next I stamped my House Mouse Chin Up Holly stamp with black ink on Neenah white paper and colored it in with Copic markers.  Then I took my Lawn Fawn Stitched Ovals Stackable dies and cut out the mouse and attached that to the card.  Next I stamped the sentiment on white paper and cut it out with one of the smaller stitched oval dies.  I inked the edges with green ink and wrapped some cranberry bakers twine around my card and tied the sentiment and the snowflake charm onto the bakers twine.  So what do you think?  I love the way the embossed background turned out with the white gelato rubbed on it.

Don't forget to check out the other creations for this challenge here.

I am also entering this card in the Design Team Challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.

I hope I have inspired you today!
