The One with the Mice Day to Celebrate Card Project


Hello everyone. Today I have a fun card to share with you using the NEW Mice Day to Celebrate stamp set and coordinating dies. This set is from the NEW My Favorite Things February release. The supplies used to create this card will be linked below.

I started with a piece of Ranger watercolor cardstock. I cut it down to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4. I used a piece of low tack masking tape to mask off the bottom portion of my panel while I ink blended a bit of light in the background. I used Distress Ink in Wild Honey. I then moved my masking tape to mask off the portion of the panel I just blended so that I could create a floor or a table, something for my critters to stand on. I used Distress Ink in both Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers to match the color scheme of the party that I was creating on my card. After I ink blended both the top and bottom portions of my card, I then splattered it with the same three Distress ink colors to create a fun confetti feel to my scene. 

Focal images:

I stamped all of my images from the Mice Day to Celebrate stamp set using MFT Extreme Black ink onto Heffy Doodle Alcohol Marker friendly paper. I used my alcohol markers to color my images. I have created a kolour map to show all of the markers I used on this piece. I cut out the images using their coordinating die set of the same name. 


I stamped the sentiment "it's a mice day to celebrate" in two sections. I first masked off the "to celebrate" and only inked the "it's a mice day" using Gina K watermark ink and stamped it onto MFT Blu Raspberry cardstock and heat embossed it using Simon Says Stamp white embossing powder. I did the same thing only this time I masked the first part of the sentiment "it's a mice day" and only stamped and embossed the "to celebrate" using the same process but I switched out the blue cardstock for MFT's Razzelberry. I cut them both into strips using my Fiskars paper trimmer. 


The assembly of this card is simple. I used various depths of adhesive to add dimension to my scene. I adhered the crates flat to the background panel to leave room to pop up the more interesting stuff in the foreground. Most images were only popped up using one or two layers of foam tape. 

The entire panel was then adhered to an A2 size top folding portrait style light gray card base. I used Gina K Designs tear tape adhesive to stick it to a piece of craft foam to pop it up as well. 

I finished off the card by gluing super small pom-poms to their hats and adding a little shimmer to the candle flame using a Gelly Roll Stardust pen. 

I hope I've inspired you to create something today. To check out more from the MFT February release (CLICK HERE!)
