Tatty Button Sneak Peak - Black & White Mousey Christmas

Morning Bloggers,

Here's another sample I've made for the Tatty Button Show on 6th December.

The stamp is Creative Expressions Tatty Button Mistletoe & Pipsqueak. It comes already mounted on to Umount and is cut out so it's ready to use straight away.

It's such a quick and easy card to make.

I stamped the image with Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut the image out using Spellbinders Labels Twelve and made a faux nestie in black card.

I wrapped some black vintage ribbon around a strip of white card and added a black fancy border on each side which was cut using the Spellbinders Parisian Accents die set.

The background was made by inking through the That Special Touch Small Polka Mask with Black Soot Distress Ink. Cool, eh?

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Tatty Button Text 2 stamp set with Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Double-Ended Tag die and cut an extra tag in black. I cut the black tag down the middle and added that to the sentiment. I put a piece of black vintage ribbon through each end of the tag.

Finally, I did a bit of faux stitching around the edge with my Inssentials white pen.

I'm sharing this card with my friends over at Make It Monday

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
