House Mouse Christmas card

Hi folks! Hope you are all well. I believe this is the first Christmas card for the year from me... but alas it is a sample to showcase the House Mouse stamps and so my Christmas card box is still empty :o( Really mustn't leave my Christmas card making too late this year.
I made a diamond top card (instructions here) and covered all the surfaces with some lovely DCWV Christmas paper. I thought it was a fun colour combo to have and also the candy canes worked really well with the stamped image. I used my square Nestabilities to cut some black glitter card and a Quickutz holly die to cut the silver glittercard holly leaves. I stamped and watercoloured the image, which is from the 'Opening Presents' set, cut and adhered onto the card with some dimensional glue gel. I finished off the card with some translucent pink half beads.
Ciao for now!

Beautifully done Sandra!
