Another easy fun Christmas Card

This is not the season for putsy :(".....; even though I love them...

So I used the November House Mouse stamp, colored it with Copics, then used "Think Pink" and "Heart Red" Flock by Stampendous
on the cape, socks and hat.

The strip of white CS that I used was 3 1/4 inches wide,( necessary if you wish for the Martha Steward snow flake border and corner punch to work out.); I like this punch because the "garbage" was easily used to put the snow flakes on to the card.
I used the Polar ice flower soft on the hat brim and tassle. . . ( this is the first one that I have not been frustrated with.. It has a glint all on it's own.. and it doesn't seem to shed as badly as the others have...It is giving me some Ideas to use on flower soft that might make me like it more.. Will let you know how they come out... But the Polar Ice. . I like!)
The top of the card was embossed with the new cuttlebug holiday snowflake border...and rubbed with versa magic "cloud white"chalk ink.
The words are from putting a small green CS strip into the new holiday words cuttlebug folder, embossing and then rubbing a bit of green chalk ink on it.. I think it was "color box ice jade chalk ink" , but I had done it before.. not knowing when I would use it and didn't pay attention to that detail.
I finished off the card with dabs from my two-way glue pen and holographic glitter. Then added a Poinsettia sticker that I had picked up from Michael's bargain bin a while back. The spellbinders poinsettia nestables smallest die could do the same thing for me, had I not had this cheap quick solution to embellishment.
I bought the stamp of the month, punch,& and all the supplies I used at
The Crackerbox Palace in Janesville, WI.
Cheer and Peace,

Wonderful card. He looks so cozy, and I bet he even looks better when the card is in your hand to feel the 'fuzzy' cover and booties.
Love those mice!
