Mouse Cuteness!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Before I give you the information on my card I have to give a big shout out to Lorraine at Lorraine’s Loft for the inspiration for my card.  I so loved the shaker aspect of her card using the same House Mouse stamp that I cased her card, well the shaker part mostly.

I colored the image with Copics and then layered it on purple then green card stock from Bazzill.  I got an “ah ha” moment when it came time to making the shaker part of the card.  I think most of us use dimensional foam squares when making the shaker.  I find that some times the little bits that are inside get stuck to the sides of the foam squares.  So I decided to cut 4 layers of card board from a cake mix box and glue them together.  I used the two round spellbinder dies and they fit perfectly behind the frame.  Now no more sticking to the foam squares!  The little bits are from the MS flower border punch.  The little heart gems are from Crafts a great find at the Dollarama.  I made the card so that the frame would slightly hang off the edge.

Here is a close up of the shaker part.

You get to see the heart gems and the little bits better in this close up of the shaker.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
