Hanukkah House Mouse

Today I wanted to play for the 
but now that I want to link my card, I notice
that I am to late, there is a new challange.
But not to worry, I share my card anyway and will
play in the new challeng too!

The challenge was to make a Christmas card, bu NO red or green.
As I am cellebrating Hanukkah (but also making
Christmas cards for my friends), I thought of  making
one for each holiday.

Yes, I can still add my cards:
I add it for the Anything goes challenge.

I have this cute House Mouse in a cup,called 
Morning Kick Start by Stampabilities and came up with
these fun cards.

Fist I show you how to fold the card:

This is the paper I used.
It is white on the backside (for writing) and
it measures 8 1/4 x 5,5 inch.

Fold it double,like you do for a normal card,
but have the brown inside.

Fold the top part half way back again.

Take your corner punch and punch top right

and bottom left (through all layers.

This is the finished base of your card.

And this is the finished card with the image of the
House Mouse. I added a snowfloke on the cup
with a gemstone in the middle. The Snowflake is by SU!.
The winter wishes sentiment is by Verve Stamps
and is a digital free download for a short period of time.
You can still find it HERE.

The banner on both cards are made with a long die
from Tim Holtz.

Here the Hanukkah version, where I decorated
the cup with a menorah stamp from Stampin'Up!.
The sentiment is from Create with TLC.

I decorated the card with some extra sticky pearls.
I love this cute mouse in it's cup.
Thank you so much for looking.

Have a ceative day!
Happy Hanukkah,
