Christmas House Meeces

I had a couple of sets of Christmas House Mouse decoupage and a set of Christmas backing paper to play with. This one was the worst, and yet the most rewarding out of all of them. I managed all the decoupage with teensy scissors - mostly as I can't be trusted around craft knives!

Easel cards came into play again, mostly as these are special cards for special people. I just layered the image onto peachy pink mirri card, and did the same with the sentiment. The backing paper of teensy Christmas lights is from the House Mouse backing paper pack and the green and gold strips (a perfect match!) happened to be lying on my desk after a frenzy of KanBan card making. The card is propped up on a little twist of plastic faux Christmas lights - I bought them at least a couple of years ago and can't recall where they came from but they certainly added just the right finishing touch!

My step-mum loves cute little mice so I think this one is for her - plus it's safe to post this as she shudders at the thought of new technology and pigs would be flying if she ever ventured into the realms of computers.
