Kaboodles 14 'scallops' and ABC 't is for threes'



This creation has been combined for 2 challenges. Kaboodles would like you to have scalloped edges any where, and ABC would like to see you use items in threes, hence 3 snowflakes and 3 different sheets of paper, 2 of which are Kaboodles own Contemporary Christmas range and one little bit left from my last card which I couldn't see go to waste. So here we go...
This is only a small card 13cm x 13cm. The scallop edged strip which was hand cut guided by plastic stencil has been attached to the dotty paper and sewn with red thread by machine, used a compass cutter to cut circle from swirly paper which is from Lets Make Cards download for Crafts Beautiful free download, again cut another circle onto white card and stamped the cute little mouse with black stazon and gently watercoloured. This image is from a rubber plate with some other stamps on and is from Crafters Companion, I don't know what he's called but I'm sure he has a name. Lovely character and could be used for beautiful wintry cards not just for christmas, then with a glitter red pen accented around. ( click to enlarge).
I've punched snowflakes from the x-cut punch and adhered some crystal dust and red gems to all three, the one the mouse is touching is raised onto foam pads as was the circle with mouse on to meet the same height. The beautiful sentiment which i thought was so appropriate is from Chris's Sweet n Sassy stamps range, so easy to work with and clear. Chris has so much inspiration on her blog too,so do check it out! That's it for now, have a good weekend and thanks for looking. :)
