A Christmas, Easel Card for - Stampin for the Weekend

Hello everyone, it is Friday and time for a new challenge over at Stampin for the Weekend.
This week the theme is: Christmas
Make a card, gift, home decor or altered item with a Christmas theme.

This is my first Christmas easel card and I just love it!

I used a stamp from Whiff of Joy called: Betty and Henry Winter Mice
And I colored it with this following Promarkers:
Spice and Coral - for the mice’s skin 
Coral, Rose Pink and Dusky Pink - for their tails, and ears
Appel and Meadow Green - for Betty’s hat, gloves and the present Henry is holding.
Maroon and Ruby - for Betty’s dress, Henry’s scarf, gloves hat and ribbon on the present. 
Holly and Forest Green - for Henry’s coat 
Cool Grey 1 - for the shadow all around the stamp
I also used silver glitter glue to put some sparkles to the stamp.
The Tree at the back of the stamp, I cut out of green basil paper, then I embossed it with my Cuttle Bug and then I added Red, Gold and Silver glitter glue to some of the embossed dots. It looks like lights doesn't it?
I also added a gold star to the top.

I glazed the card board snowflakes with 
“Royal Coat Dimensional Magic” and while it was still wet I added dry white glitter. I stuck this in the top left corner.

In the top right corner I stuck a piece of lace with a metal, star charm knotted to it.

This beautiful little Santa Claus I cut out of some beautiful christmas paper, stuck it on a pop-up saying “Ho-Ho-Ho.”

On the bottom strip of the easel card, I stuck a piece of the same lace as in the top right corner of the front of the card.

I also cut out another image as in the bottom right corner of the front card.
This one is just a rain deer saying - “Merry Christmas”
Together they read: “Ho-Ho-Ho Merry Christmas”
I also stuck a metal hart charm next to the rain deer saying “Made with love.”

To help the easel card stand up, I stuck a strip of cardboard christmas leafs decorated with “Royal Coat Dimensional Magic” and glittered with Green dry glitter.
I also stuck another snow flake in the bottom right corner.
That is all for now, Please hop over to Stampin for the Weekend and check out the beautiful DT card!
