Happy Thursday everyone! I’m over on the Trinity Stamps blog today with this fabulous mousy slimline card! I fell in love with these mice the second I saw them last fall and love how versatile they are all year round!
For this card I decided to work outside of my comfort zone a bit and try some heat embossing and watercolor with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Instead of the traditional black heat embossing, I went with copper for a different look and I love it!
To make this fun card, I heat embossed the images from Mouse House, colored and then die cut them with the coordinating dies. Then I took out my Slimline Stitched Card Panels and Windows die set and cut the largest from kraft cardstock and the smallest twice from white cardstock. Then I took the stitched border from the Castle Scene Builder die set and cut a “ground” for my scene from one of the white panels. I inked the white panels up with distress inks and spritzed them with water.
On to assembly now. I put the kraft panel on a card base 3.5×8.5 inch card base and then adhered the ground to the sky panel and popped it up with foam tape. For the images, the house and mushrooms are adhered directly to the card-front but the mice and snail are popped up with foam squares.
With all of the shine from the heat embossing and texture of the distress ink background I actually didn’t add any further embellishments to this card. I stamped my sentiment in the top left sky area and this beautiful card is ready to be shared!
I love the variety of sentiments in this set. You can make almost any occasion card you need to. It’s great!
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
