Rudolph Days ~~ March

I finally have the card made for Rudolph Days for March, I've been working on it for days one little step at a time. I changed my mind 3 times on which image I was going to use then it was the sketch, sometimes thing just don't fall into place right off the get-go.  But here it is with one day to spare.

I bought these super cute mini house mouse clear stamps and it's the first time any of them have seen ink, it was a bit bigger than the die I wanted to use so I "cut inside the box" picture tutorial to follow. 
The sketch is from Mojo Monday.

Finished the inside with a edge die, an inkadinkadoo sentiment that seemed perfect for the image.

Now the tutorial.

first I lay the die down yes it's upside down so I can see the edge, so you know what part is outside the frame. 

Then fussy cut the edges of what you don't want die-cut, then you slide the part you don't want cut over the the die edge, this part will not cut but the rest will.

This is what it looks like after it has gone through the die cutting machine, then you finish fussy cutting the part that is outside the frame.

I hope you can understand, I know at one point there was a video showing how to do partial cutting.

I am entering this in:
