Hello there. Today’s card was a happy surprise. I had stamped this image (retired - Merry Mouse from Clearly Besotted) many months ago to play along in some challenges, but I ended up doing something else. So it was tucked away uncoloured and untouched until now to be entered in several challenges. I first heard ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas in my childhood, and before the stockings were hung by the chimney with care… 😉

Before the Stockings were Hung By the Chimney with Care
The Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die from Memory Box was used to die cut a panel from Xpress It cardstock. Stamped the image in the corner with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with Copic markers.
Masked the image next, then used a blender brush to blend Antique Linen distress ink through an English Brick Wall stencil from My Favorite Things (MFT). The sentiment from Clearly Besotted Christmas Corners was heat embossed on black cardstock with white embossing powder. Assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.
Thank you for stopping by.
