Mouse Cocoa

Hello, everyone! It's cold and snowy here so I'm making winter cards! This one depicts a mouse with hot cocoa! I have people on my Christmas card list who do not like Christmas so you will notice I make some cards with winter sentiments. I went with a brown colour scheme for more of a masculine look.


The cute clip-art is from Diddybag and I fussy-cut, popped up with foam tape, and added Glossy Accents to the mug and Snow Writer to his hat. The snowflake die-cut from Stampendous is embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and popped up with foam tape. I followed the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches:



The snowflake border is Memory Box Frostyville Border, and I added a strip of brown polka-dot washi tape.  The sentiment from Lawn Fawn Winter Fox is heat-embossed in white.

  5. Wow!!! This "explosion" of blue snowflakes is a true catch-eyes!! And it take the eyes to the blue of the cute mouse! Such a great use of colours, my friend!! Fabulous critter, love it so much, he is so sweet and fun with the lovely cup of hot cocoa!!! Really fabulous card, the washi with polka matches so well with the frostville diecut and the brown of the base! Stunning work!

  37. I never find room for making 'just' a winter card, they're all Christmas, but I would do like you do if I knew some of the recipients weren't Christmas fans, makes sense. I like this blue die cut onto brown background, makes me think of winter and hot cocoa, like your image. Cute!
