Bah! Humbug! Challenge #8

The challenge this week over on the Bah! Humbug! blog is stitching/faux stitching, well you wouldn't need a crystal ball to guess which one I would chose, I have used my Cuttlebug folder to do the zigzag stich effect on the mat the mouse is sitting on and also for the wobbly strip holding the Merry Christmas. Getting the printing in the right place on the tag was a job in itself but in the end I had a eureka momnet and used one of the ones that had gone wrong as a template to put over the printed area and bingo it worked, my brain does still function at times.

The backing paper comes from The Christmas Multi Stack by DCWV that I have recently bought from Dies to Die for I have never bought from them before but will definately do so again, the service was super and so were the prices. The mat that the mouse is sitting on is done with alochol inks and it is on glossy card, must say that the little mouse is a digi stamp but he did have a coat around him which I have cut away and he is from Dulemba which has lots of free digi stamps so worth a look, this is were the snowman came from that I used on the snowman challenge card.

I have just noticed that I have taken the photo before it was finished, the fur on the hat is now glittered but you'll have to use your imagination for that bit!
