For my Christmas card today, I am showcasing the Naughty or Mice stamp set and coordinating dies, the Forest Scene Builder Die set, the Holiday Stockings stamp set with Stylish Stockings die set, Land Borders die set and Santa Paws Newton stamp set and Santa Paws Newton die set.

To begin, I stamped my images using the Spectrum Noir Finesse alcohol-proof quick dry ink in Rustic Brown and colored my images in with my Spectrum Noir classique markers.  The Mice were colored in Muted Browns.  I use the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

I die-cut the elements that I needed to create my Christmas winter scene using the Forest Scene Builder dies for the trees (also used it for my Christmas tree), the land border dies for my snow hills, and the house using a die from my stash.


Here’s my card:



Here’s what it looks like when you open the door:



I adorned the Christmas tree with some red crystal jewels.



I also added some crystal lacquer to the stocking and the mouse’s beanie and stamped the sentiment with some Lobster red ink.
