Hello Spring Mouse

March 20, 2017

I was just having fun making a card that meets the requirements of two current challenges. This card will be entered in Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge: Layer It Up and Simon Says Stamps Flickr Challenge #67: Think Spring.



Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by stamping my images and sentiment on a panel of white cardstock. I masked the stem of the flower so it looked like the mouse was holding it. I added some color to the corner with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink and a Mini Ink Blending Tool. I used colored pencils to add color to the mouse and flower. I used a white gel pen to color in the petals of the flower, and add some detail to the mouse’s eyes. Once the white gel pen was dry, I outlined everything in a black gel pen. I felt like it made the two stamps from different companies look more alike.

Next, I die cut the stamped panel with a small stitched rectangle die. I also die cut a piece of dotted vellum, blue polka dotted patterned paper, and striped patterned paper with stitched rectangles. Then, I began layering all of the papers together. I added the velum to the back of the stamped piece. I added a layer of fun foam behind the velum. Then, I added the blue patterned paper. I played with the edges of the velum to add some more dimension. I adhered the striped paper to a white card base. Lastly, I adhered the stamped panel and additional papers to the card base and the card was done.
