Candy Canes and Epic Fail!
Had a play day over the weekend. It was loads of fun to just make whatever card I felt like making. I began with this card because someone had prestamped this image on watercolor paper and put it in my stash so thought I would pull out my Tombow markers and use it! Once I had finished coloring I cut out these guys using my scissors and craft knife. I took a piece of white cardstock and cut a Spellbinders Labels 1 window out of the middle and added a scrap of Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet paper behind. I used a SRM sticker leftover from my class on Friday night (I am soooo in LOVE with these stickers!! They look amazing on cardstock and not at all like a sticker). I used my black Tombow marker to add a black squiggly border around the edge of the cardstock then matted it to my main cardstock. I finished the card off with some Stickles around the window opening and some Glossy Accents on the Mice tongues. Super cute! Now comes the epic fail part! I had an already made card sitting on my table and somehow, I have no idea how this happened, I mounted the mice to the back of the already made card so this card does double duty - it is a thankyou card on one side and a Christmas card on the other!!! Very efficient of me!! Not! Of course I noticed this just as I was leaving the store so will have to fix this when I get back to the store Monday or maybe I will leave it and try to start a new trend!!
Thanks everyone for stopping by.
I own Crafty Capers, a rubber stamp store, located in Nanaimo BC. I started stamping after one of my sisters bought me some stamps and inks for a Christmas present about 20 years ago. I have been hooked ever since!
