Santa's Helper

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
Happy Saturday Friends!  This month we are showcasing some "Christmas in July" projects over at High Hopes.  Here is another Christmas card to hopefully inspire you to get started on this year's festive cards!
This is Santa's Helper (L039).  Oh this poor little fella looks sooo tired, but very happy and full! I am sure we all feel a bit this way over the holiday season! LOL!  
The image was stamped on Xpress It cardstock with a Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad using my Misti Stamping Tool.  The image was coloured with Copic Markers.
For the card base, I chose some SU Riding Hood Red cardstock.  The designer paper is from Simple Stories-Claus & Co. 6x6 Paper Pad.  The image was die cut using a couple of Spellbinder Circle Dies and foam tape was applied to adhere the image to this card.   A piece of SU Pear Pizzazz stitched ribbon was added below the main image.  The sentiment is a rub-on from Deja View-Holiday Fun pack. 
To complete this card, Ranger-Ice Stickles (Crystal Ice) was used on the fur of the mouse's hat, coat and pompom, to add a finishing touch to this adorable Christmas card.
Supplies Used:
InkCopic Markers - Y06, R35, E49, T2, RV93, E25, E29, R46 and B000; Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad.
PaperSimple Stories-Claus & Co. 6x6 Paper Pad; SU Riding Hood Red and Certainly Celery Cardstock; Xpress It Cardstock.
MiscMisti Stamping Tool, Ranger-Ice Stickles (Crystal Ice), Spellbinders-Circle Dies, Deja View Rub-Ons-Holiday Fun Pack, SU Pear Pizzazz Stitched Ribbon, Foam Tape and Glue Dots.
