Hey everybody! Happy Saturday! I hope you all have some nice plans for the weekend...I have to work some OT this morning, and then hopefully spend the rest of the day in my craft room checking out some challenges!
Speaking of challenges, it's the start of a new month at Catch the Bug, which means another Anything Goes challenge! YAY! I love ATG challenges...that usually means I am making a Christmas card, but not so this time!
Since Valentine's Day is fast approaching, I decided to make a card for my hubby. I ADORE this little Mouse Hearts image, and I set up the design in my Silhouette program so that the oval shape and the outline shape of the mouse were cut as one piece. I am so stoked that I actually accomplished this! It definitely took some figuring out, but I LOVE the final results! I popped my panel up on foam tape and made this card a shaker. The pink and red sequins are from my mostly unused stash (I need to remedy that more often!). The love you dies are from Tim Holtz/Sizzix, and I cut them each 5 times from bright pink Recollections card stock and layered them together. After adhering them to my card panel, they were coated with clear Wink of Stella a few times, and then sealed with a coat of Glossy Accents. I love how the shimmer shows through! I also added Wink of Stella to the three hearts in the mouse's hands. A few more sequins were glued to the front, and this card is ready to give to my hubby!
