Have a Mice Holiday Season

For today's card, I've made two cards to enter in the Coffee Loving Fall/Winter 2020 Blog Hop.  I selected Polka Dot Orchard's Peppermint Wishes mugs for both.  

For the first card I also selected the new release from Polka Dot Orchard, Merry ChristMouse.  

I duplicated the  mug and flipped it horizontally, then added the mice to each of the cups.  I added the sentiment below the left mug and then printed the card front on Neenah 110# card stock.  I used my Copic markers for coloring each of the images and then the Whimsy Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle die for the edges.  I mounted the card front on a blue A2 card base and then added three enamel dots to complete the card.

For the second card, I took the second mug from the Peppermint Wishes (with the candy cane) and I added a few more snowflakes around the mug.  I changed the color of the snowflakes to a light blue.  I sized the sentiment under the mug and then printed the card front on Neenah 110# card stock. I colored the mug with Copic B21 and B24 and the 'foam' with Copic E30.  I used Gina Marie Designs Fancy Pierced Nested Label die (discontinued) for the decorative edges, then mounted on a light blue dotted swiss paper.  I added this to an A2 sized card base and finished the card with a red organza ribbon tie.

I hope you will check out both of these packages on Polka Dot Orchard along with many others.  I appreciate you stopping by today to see what I've been making too.    I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
