Baking Mice Slimline Christmas Card

Happy Saturday Cottage Cutz Friends!
Melinda here with you, and today I am sharing a cute and festive Christmas themed slimline card I created featuring the adorable Christmas Baking Mice die from this year's amazing Christmas release!
My card is a slimline card and the completed size measures 4 x 9. It is a side folding card with a white cardstock base.  

I started by die cutting all of my pieces in white cardstock. I then proceeded to color the various pieces in with my markers. I wanted to keep my little sweet baking mice close to the color of the packaging. Once all my pieces were colored, I began to assemble them.  on the lighter colored side. So I used shades of gray and light pink-peach for their ears. I used some chalks for their cheeks. I also added some stickles to the tiny chocolate chips in the batter. 
I then proceeded to cut out the largest two dies in white cardstock of the scalloped slimline die set
I then began to adhere my mice and all their little details onto my card base. I did use some pink cardstock for the main mat and also for a mat underneath.

Here is a closer look at the sweet little title. It is from the Baking Spirits Bright die set from last year. I also used some of the cookie pieces form the Sweet As a Christmas Cookie die. I colored them all with my markers. The cookies are a ginger brown and the lettering was read. I did leave the letters of the word spirits on the rolling pin white.

I layered that inner panel onto the larger scallop stitched panel. On the larger panel I added some of that diagonal Christmas plaid paper. Lastly I did add some stickles to the larger star cookie and the tree cookie.

Here is one last look at the completed card. I think this card turned out super cute!
