Happy Anniversary! Interlocking Heart Card










I was browsing through my photo editing software and found several creations I forgot to share! I made this card for my husband for our first anniversary last month! 

This was a fun little file I have used before but wanted to make it a little more 'manly' for my husband. I used Kraft paper and a deep red for a nice color combo...no pink in sight! LOL

This is a small card so it would be perfect for any occasion! Mine is slightly larger than 3.5 x 3.5.

Note for the Silhouette crafters:

 I changed this file up a bit by adding a slightly smaller white heart under the red lace piece and left off the heart on the flap of the envelope. I added a couple matted pieces for writing my message on the center panel.  On the back of the envelope I also added a small heart on a pop dot to have something to tuck the envelope point under. 


You can find the file at the Silhouette Store:

CARD INTERLOCK LACE HEART AND ENVELOPE SET






Hope you enjoyed this card!

Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people. I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself. This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!



 I hope you will get out your House Mouse stamps and join our fun!

I told you you would see more of  this 

new Stampendous House Mouse Mini Clear Set from 

Stampendous!  It is a set of 10 little clear HM stamps-each 

with their own  little sentiment set as well.     You can 

purchase them HERE.  It's a fun set that comes with a 

stamping block and a little stamp pad too. Perfect for 

stamping these little meeces on the go! 




This is a fun fold design I first used over 9 years ago-and it is still as cute  as ever!  

I always need  birthday cards so it is great to have a few on hand.

This design is fast and easy and perfect for these little meece 

stamps.



Cut paper 4 inches by 11 inches

Score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches

Make sure you decide which side of your designer paper to show on the outside.

Use a die cut or punch about 3 to 3.5 inches in the center panel (I used a Lawn Fawn circle die at 3.25 inches.)  You can use a square or fancy design too. Make sure to center it on the middle panel. 

I used a die cut about a half inch bigger for my image and glued it on the left inside panel, making sure it is centered on the opening when folded close.

You can also add a piece of paper on the right panel to write a personal message on.

I used an old SU! punch for the half circle tab that I tucked the folded card in to.  You could also just tuck the edge of the fold  under the button, or use a fun paper clip.

I added a banner sentiment on the front.


I added a banner sentiment on the front.

Our challenge is to use a die but I mostly use my Silhouette cutting machine instead of dies so this card uses my Silhouette for the fun fold base.

I just got this new Stampendous House Mouse Mini Clear Set from Stampendous!  It is a set of 10 little clear HM stamps-each with their own  little sentiment set as well.  How fun is that?   You can purchase them HERE.  It's a fun set that comes with a stamping block and a little stamp pad too. Perfect for stamping these little meeces on the go! I am sure you will be seeing more of this set!

My card base today is a new file from My Scrap Chick named Square Shutter Card-4 inch. This is quite a fun little card to make and a perfect fit for these new mousie stamps. Very fast and easy. I did add a little belly band to this card so I could stick my little meecie to it. I also added a white base to the front panels by making an offset of the panel piece by .65.

I chose to go with a very simple card base as this is such a fun stamp with lots going on!Can you imagine having a whole classroom of silly, squeaky and sleepy students? 

I colored the image with copics and cut the sentiment with my Silhouette out of matte vinyl, and then finished it off with a little twine.  

Seems this teacher is losing her patience, ya think? 

Stamp used is an older wood mount named Mice Lessons 101  HMPR1037.  I was going to link it on EBAY but geeze-nothing less that $30.  Guess this is a real collectors stamp!

What was I thinking?????????  I decided to cut out all the blank spaces on this stamp...Geeze---I am not the best cutter-er!

 Once I started there was no turning back. I wasn't sure it was my favorite thing, but it turned out ok. 

I used a fun House Mouse Happy Hopper stamp and the sentiment and bookmark is from a school set I had. I mounted them on a paper easel card cut with my Silhouette.
