A Christmas Tale

I was having a look through my Christmas stamps last night and came accross this lovely House Mouse, A Christmas Tale rubber stamp. I have had this stamp for a while and the usual thing I had never used it. I just love H M stamps but the do take a long time to colour. Anyway here is how it is made.

  • A4 red cs folded in half.
  • White watercolour card
  • Watercolour crayons
  • White ice gold card
  • Red chalk ink pad
  • Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder.
  • Diamond glaze.
  • Diamond glitter glue.
  • Black Stazon ink pad.
  • White snowflake button.
  • 12 x 12 sheet of paper from Chloe's Closet called Reindeer Games.
  • Peel off Merry Christmas
  • Corner punch.
  1. Fold your A4 card in half.
  2. You need an 8cm strip of the Reindeer paper, which you have torn across the top, stuck to the bottom of the card.
  3. Stamp your image onto watercolour card. Cut to size, then paint, leave to dry.
  4. Use your cuttle bug folder and emboss the ice gold cs which measures 13 x 10 cm. Then stick this to your main card.
  5. Round your corners on your main image, then go around with a red chalk ink pad.
  6. Use double sided foam pads to stick this image to your card.
  7. Stick your snowflake button on using diamond glaze.
  8. I have added some glitter around the edge of the book, to give a bit of Christmas magic!
  9. Then I applied some diamond glaze to the candle.
Happy crafting until next time.
