PTI Swap Christmas Card

This is my Christmas card for this round of the PTI swap. Ccard base is Ripe Avocado. Focal image is from Christmas Tags 2008. I colored it with markers (Old Olive, Real Red, and Chocolate Chip), stamped it on SU Whisper White, and stamped the mouse again so I could cut him out and pop him up. I'm happy to see PTI is offering a BG stamp with "Twas the Night Before Christmas" on it this next release. That will be a must-have for me. I punched it out with my 1.75" circle punch and used a nestie for the scallop circle in Pure Poppy. I stamped the script BG from Background Basics Text Style in Ripe Avo on Whisper White and sponged with Chocolate Chip Ink, then layered onto PTI Dark Chocolate CS. Over that is PTI DP. I then zig-zag stitched these layers together, layered the ribbon and tag over that and mounted it to the base. Sent. is from Signature Christmas in Ripe Avo with red button and olive DMC. Thanks for looking!
