Trio of Slim line Christmas cards

So So Happy to have all my Overseas Christmas card posted....  Whoopie

But I still do need a few more for the local family and friends... so today I have 3 mini slim line cards - they measure 3.5" x 6.25" - and the two horizontal ones are from images already stamped and coloured in my stash just waiting for some words... so I trimmed them to size.

This cute House Mouse - (Monica Mouse) Gifts to Tie,  was stamped with Versafine black and watercoloured with Distress Inks,  then I saw this circle stitched die on my desk and thought to highlight the mouse with it.  Lastly stamped the sentiment with Versafine Clair - Tulip Red, trimmed and attached with foam tape. I added a teal border before attaching to a white card.

A few months back I was hooked on stamping this Holly Leaf  - Hero Arts: Watercolour Holly Outline, it was stamped with dark green Distress Ink - think it may have been Rustic Wilderness, and then loosely watercoloured with the same - I remember masking the berries and used a red embossing pen to colour the stamp.  I finished the card today - stamped the sentiment from Chocolate Baroque: set 017 with Versamark and used some new Sizzix embossing powder - Mistletoe Green.  Finished the card with a red border and a few red gems

My last vertical card was made using a tree die - magazine freebie, I removed the die cut piece and instead of using it alone, decided to lightly ink with Pine Needles Distress Ink and clear emboss it and then place it back into the panel.  Chose some sparkly green card to place behind the tree and trimmed it to leave a border.  Stamped the sentiment from Kaisercarft - Christmas Quotes and gold embossed.  Assembled the card and added some gems to decorate the tree and an extra for the sentiment.
