I made this cute card for Valentine’s Day, but I was thinking that with a few tweaks it could be used for so many other occasions.
A different color scheme, maybe a different die cut behind the mouse, a different sentiment…and you have a cute little mouse delivering a heartfelt message for a birthday, to say “thinking of you” or “thank you” or even to welcome a new baby.
This adorable mouse is Mice Lil’ Thank You from Unity Stamp Company. The sentiment is from Stampendous – I don’t think it is still available, just use your favorite sentiment stamp. The heart doily die is a discontinued die from My Favorite Things – but here is a similar one from Spellbinders.
I stamped the mouse with black ink on white card stock, colored him with Copic markers, and punched with a circle punch. I die cut the heart doily from red card stock and attached the stamped image to the center. The sentiment is stamped with black ink on red card stock and punched with a label punch.
To put the card together, I added a panel of black card stock to cover the front of a white card. Then I added a panel of patterned paper over the black. The sentiment is attached directly to the card and the doily with the little mouse is attached with foam tape.
He is just the cutest thing! Use your imagination and I’m sure you’ll come up with all kinds of ideas for this little guy.
