I knew when I saw it that I would use it for this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge which is to Just Add Color.
I wanted to color it in a way that I had seen on other fantastic cards - which was simply to color with Glitter Pens. When I have seen it done, it adds a mass of sparkle. But the crafting gods are not on my side this morning because nothing went quite right. My light pink glitter pen is dry. I can't find my red one. My green ones are all fairly ugly colors. So...I ended up with a card that simply uses Copics! I did add a layer of glue and dumped glitter all over it - but it isn't quite the same as using glitter pens.
I wanted the embossed ornaments to "frame" the mouse - they get higher as you move toward the mouse, but I only had this vertical folder. So I first cut my white strips (4" x 1 5/8") then embossed one with the ornaments to the bottom, the next with the ornaments near the middle and the last with the ornaments at the top.
