Waltzing Mouse Blog Waltz

Please join us for our Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz

Hello everyone,

I was blog hopping last night and came across the Waltzing Mouse blog which is having their monthly Blog Waltz right now. I have never tried a blog hop before but I do have a few of the gorgeous Waltzing Mouse stamps so I decided to have a go. The problem was that the theme is Christmas, and I don't (yet) have any WM stamps that are specifically Christmas, but I found a Christmas sentiment on the Frame-It set, so here is a simple card that can be (and was)  created very quickly. As this is my first time and the rules said to use WM stamps, I wasn't sure if other makes of stamp could also be used, so I played safe and just used some poinsettia flowers which I curled to give them some dimension. I used the same size label die for the mat and the raised focal point mat, I just trimmed round the image to make it a tad smaller than the mat because the next size die was too large for the card. A couple of stars on the mat added the slightest touch of bling because it is for Christmas!

  5. the vellum is such a nice touch and neat trick to mute the red. allows the poinsettia flowers to pop. absolutely lovely.
