Today I was alone in the crafting chambers, working away at some new enchantments, when suddenly a loud crashing could be heard from the storage attics. It startled me, causing me to drop the vial of dragonstooth powder I was holding, sending glass shards and the valuable ingredient across the chamber floor. Cursing, I made my way to the attic to investigate the cause of this catastrophe. After climbing the hidden ladder and pushing open the heavy wooden trap door to the attic floor, I was surprised to see our Christmas tree decorations sprawled across the room. In the corner, a group of mice wearing little santa hats were playing on the baubles, singing Christmas carols.
This card was created for the Creative Card Crew “Christmas in July” challenge that is happening now. Get a head start and make a Christmas creation to come play along with us for your chance to win a prize from our sponsors!
I started this card by colouring the Whiff of Joy "Harry Hugging a Christmas Bauble" image using Prismacolor pencils.
I added some gold glitter to the bauble and some white glitter to the fluffy parts of his hat, earning me +926 glitter XP and allowing me to level up my sparkle spells. I cut the salutation out using the Lawn Fawn “Quinn’s ABCs” dies.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment using The Greeting Farm’s “Holiday Blessings” set and coloured in the baubles with Distress Markers.
I made the envelope out of this weird textured cardstock I got on clearance from Michaels awhile ago. It’s not really good for much as you can’t stamp on it because of the texture and the Cricut just eats it, so I can’t use it for die cutting. It makes great envelopes though - just have to add a label so you can write the address in. :)
This card will hang itself in the following challenges:Friday Sketch Challenge #74
Although the room was now a mess, and I had lost the valuable dragonstooth powder, it was difficult to be angry at the adorable Christmas mouse clan. I decided to let them be, and have the house gnomes put the decorations away later. Everyone knows it’s good luck to have a Christmas mouse visit in July.
