How cute are these little guys marching across my card?
When I saw the stamp set in the Holiday Catalogue I feel in love with the images and since I love to colour this was a must-have set for me. Patsy loved it too so we decided to feature the stamp set in our monthly Border Buddy PDF free card program. When you purchase online from us during October you will receive a PDF with instructions for four cards using this adorable set plus four cards using the Paisleys and Posies stamp set.

I cut out the "H" using the Large Letters Framelits dies and highlighted the first mouse with the Layering Circles Framelits to create the first HO. The rest of the Ho Ho Ho is created by inking up two of the words from the Oh, What Fun stamp set using a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker.
I wrapped some of the Gold Metallic Thread around the "H".
I watercoloured the mice using my Aqua Painter and a variety of inks. I finished off the ornament and the present with the Wink of Stella Gold Glimmer Brush.
I created the ribbon edge by cutting the new Real Red 3/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon and then I just glued it to the back of the stamped piece. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the piece because of the bulk of the piece. The Designer Series paper is from the Annual Catalogue offering of This Christmas Specialty DSP.
