Isn't that little mouse cute? It's part of a set of four critters from the Valentine Pals stamp set* from Fun Stamper's Journey. If you don't like fussy cutting there's also a matching die set.*
Construction:I started with a Sweet Berry* card base and added a background I made several months ago using Liquid Color and photo paper. You can read more about that technique HERE..
Next, I cut a 1.25" x 4" border strip from a sheet out of the Follow Your Heart Prints paper pack* and adhered that about 1/2" up from the bottom of the card. I positioned the small striped strip from Deco Strips - Black Sticker Strips* about 1/4" down from the top of the gray border.
Then, I used the medium sized heart from the Decorative Hearts die set* to cut a heart from Bubble Gum cardstock* and a background from Whip Cream cardstock*. Then, starting from the outer edges, I inked each of them with Sweet Berry true color fusion ink* so that the outer edges are darker than the centers. Once that was done, I adhered the two pieces together and adhered them, slightly tilted, to the left side of the card.
I stamped the mouse onto Whip Cream cardstock* and colored it with Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers: IG1, IG2, FS5, and BP2. After coloring it I used the die from the the matching die set* and popped it up on medium foam squares* on the right side of the heart.
I used the smallest heart from the Heart Felt die set* to cut a heart from Rustic Rose cardstock* and stamped "Mice to know you" from the Valentine Pals stamp set*. I popped that up on medium foam squares* just above and to the right of the large heart.
