Emma and Tom's Christmas Card.

I made this Christmas easel card for Tom and Emma a little while ago, finished it about five minutes before I gave it to still a bit sticky with the glitter! I've had it in draft and forgot all about it, aw, poor little card! Anyway, all the challenges I had lined up for it are most likely over by now, which is a shame, I do love House Mouse! Not sure what this image is called as it was a swap from quite a while back. Love those mices! They're just like me and hubby when we decorate our tree, John on his back tossing his balls in the air... and me... umm...yes ...right... on wards!! (I blame the pills I'm on, they make my head very fuzzy! But at least I'm not sneezing so much!)
The card. I used papers I bought half prize in last years sales, Pepper's Christmas Party. Lovely 150gsm papers, some are already glittered. I matted them onto red glitter card and miri card, which I've also had for a trillion years!
The ribbon, I bought from a local haberdashery shop last week, for about 35p a metre. The two 'Designer Epoxy Brads' where also bought in last years Dec/Jan Christmas sales at half price. They're from the Cosy Christmas Collection by Forever Friends, so instead of £2.99 they were £1.50 (for 26)
I've used my new Memory Box snowflake die cut again, coz I love it! and MUST have the corner die cut by them too...but in this case I've used a corner die cut by Provo Craft, which I've had for years. I've coloured the little mice with Promarkers...and added loads of Stickles glitter glue (not that you can see that here)
The Font is a freebie. It's called Medusa, Oops! No! That's not Medusa! Sorry! The one I've used here is called Kingthings Willowless, there's lots of 'Kingthings' fonts, (I'll have a hunt for them...all a bit different. There's another couple called Kingthings Christmas and Kings Christmas2
