An xmas walk in wonderland and cosy 'n' warm!!

Well on Wednesday whilst watching Sara and Jane on Create and Craft I was inspired to make some Christmas cards using last years Christmas cute companions whilst I waited eagerly for my Cute Companions Walk in Wonderland Bumper pack to arrive!!!

I made two lovely cards, which I must say I am really pleased with.

This is the first one. I used the village scene, mounted this onto some silver mirror card and a silver pearl card.
I then stamped some of the mice, the street lamp and two presents, then coloured these with watercolour pencils. I added some polar white flower soft and glamour dust to the village background, and then some additional glamour dust to the fur area's of the mouses coat.
The next card I have used the fireside scene which has been decoupaged.
Overall this card is 8x8" but has an a5 opening section. I have attached a panel on the left hand side consisting of gold mirror card, patterned paper and ribbon. I have then finished this card with a stamped greeting.
