Di's Digital Stamps Cheesy Christmas Mice Card

Today's card features Di's Digital Stamps Cheesy Christmas Mice. Unlike real life mice, I find these digis super cute and there are several cards on the blog featuring them (like this Cheesy Mice on the Moon anniversary card I made for my husband – right up there in the all time favorites category). 

The papers on this card feature the remaining scraps left from Carta Bella's Christmas Delivery Paper pad (retired). I have used the heck out of this pad (e.g. this Ham It Up Pig Christmas card) and I so like it I've kept the bits and pieces thinking I'll find a use for them. I purposely made this card smaller to accommodate the remaining papers and strategically placed the focal point image to cover up a hole cut in the paper behind it. I used a little cut strip of the paper as a ribbon.

As with many of Di's images, for the sentiment I've paired it with one of Kim's Digital Stamp sentiment sheets – Twelve Christmas Greetings. For embellishments, I painted a wooden snowflake black and topped it with a red button.
