Merry Kiss-Mas

Before
 


After
 



I took a whole day (on and off) to make this card. I kept looking at the card and thinking there was something I didn't like about it. (The first picture, ignore the cut part of the paper, I did that after I removed it to try to still use the paper!) So after going back to it throughout the day I decided it was the blue paper with the red dots that was throwing me off. I actually colored her little shirt to match the paper! So I removed the paper and ended up with the second picture's card. I changed the layer under the image from red to white and added Stickles glitter glue in little dots all around the border. I also used white Stickles on the berries as I realized that Mistletoe berries are white not red! I am happy with it now :) This is such an adorable stamp! I really can only give it to my hubby I guess but I just had to have these cutie pies. So what do you think? Do you like the before card? Just curious, thanks for looking!

I love both cards, but I really like the 2nd one. The red really brings out the picture! You can tell that the picture is the focal point with the red background. Thanks for sharing your wonderful cards!!

I do like the before card, it really brings out the colors in the clothes the mice are wearing. Both cards are super cute!
