Peeking Mouse!

Hello Crafty Friends!

It’s Hanh here and I am so happy and excited to be Guest
Designing again for Gerda Steiner Designs! Today I have a fairly clean and simple card showcasing the absolutely adorable In Your Corner set. Confession: I would be deathly afraid if I saw a mouse in our house. But there’s something about Gerda’s amazing illustrations that just makes her mice so lovable! How can you resist that sweet face? 

First, I stamped the image onto the lower right corner of a piece of Neenah Solar White 110 lb card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I masked off most of the image and stamped two mice onto another piece of cardstock. I colored the images with Copic markers and accented with gel pens. Next, I fussy cut the additional mice images out with a sharp pair of scissors. 

Mouse: E50/51/53/33, R000/20
Heart: RV10/13/14
Baseboard: C00/0/1
Mouse hole: C5
Floor: W00/0/1/3

I took another piece of white cardstock to create the card front. I used three circle dies (1”, 1.5” and 3” diameter) to diecut windows into the panel. I used this panel as a guide to ink blend the top portion of the Copic colored panel with some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink.

This stamp set includes three sentiments. I adore these two sweet sentiments together … “I am in your corner. Always.” I stamped them directly onto the front panel with the same Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I thought it would be fun to position and adhere the additional mice images onto the back side of the front panel so that the mice can peek out of the circle windows. I added foam tape to the back side of the front panel and adhered the two panels together.

Finally, I adhered the panels to a white cardbase (4.25" x 5.5").

As always, I appreciate you taking the time to stop by and visit today. I hope you liked my card.  I had so much fun playing with this adorable In Your Corner set and truly appreciated this amazing opportunity to Guest Design for GSD. Please also visit my INSTAGRAM feed for more inspirations.

Have a wonderful and crafty day!
