This card was inspired by a Leslie Oman card. I loved the card and have a friend who also loves anything to do with cheese, so I made her a birthday card.
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started by die cutting a stitched rectangle from water color paper. Then, I die cut stitched circles in three sizes. I used each of the sizes a few times. I saved the positive circles as well. Then I added some Distress ink. I used an ink blending tool to add a variety of yellows to the rectangles layer. I made the circles a darker shade of yellow.
As the inked panels dried, I stamped the mice and other images on a separate piece of water color paper. I used more Distress Inks to water color them in. Once they were dry, I fussy cut them out and painted the edges with a black marker.
Next, I started assembling the card. I used a light grey cardstock for the card base. I popped the rectangular inked panel up on fun foam. I glued the circles flat to the card base. Then, I started gluing down the mice. I added tails on with a thin black Sharpie marker. Lastly, I added a banner with the sentiment. I also added an extra mouse on the banner.
Challenges: I am entering this card in Lawnscaping Challenge #133 Mood Board.
I wasn’t planning on entering this card. Once i looked at the finished card, I noticed that the colors and shapes reminded me on this mood board.
