Mousy Mouse

What do you think of this little guy? I wanted to put a candy cane in his paw but ended up keeping it simple.
You will need the following Stampin' Up! punches:
Ornament (head & body)
1" circle (ears)
3/4" circle (ears, paws & muzzle)
large oval & wide oval (tail)
1/4" circle (nose)
Additionally, you will need a teardrop punch for the eyes.  Some people have been having problems finding the martha stewart punch.  Fiscars makes a good substitute teardrop punch if you can't find the MS one.

I used basic gray, going gray, pirouette, basic black cardstocks for the mouse.
The paper I used is a double sided Fancy Pants paper.
Base color of card is not quite navy and there are layers of baja breeze and ruby red.  Riding hood red striped grosgrain

For the tail, you need to punch the large oval first and then line up the wide oval over the top and punch a ring for the tail.

Sponge all of the pieces with white craft ink (except the eyes).  Use pop dots to attach the muzzle and paws

Add highlights to eyes and nose with uni-bal signo white gel pen and detailing with black zig pen.

That is adorable! This would be great to use with a Christmas tree for "not a creature is stirring not even a mouse." Fun!
