Isn’t that a darling image? It’s a new digital image from Meljen’s Designs sold by Whimsy stamps called Birthday Cup Mouse. When I saw Friday’s Free for All Challenge (Birthday cards for kids),

I printed out the Birthday Cup Mouse with my new Laserjet Printer (LOVE it!!!, no more smearing) on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed it out with the largest Classic Circle Nestabilities die and colored it with Copic Markers (Mouse: N1, N3, N5, YR000, YR00, YR01, Cup: BG10, BG11, BG13, Candles: E21, E25, E29, Y38, YR07, YR18, Candle Flame: Y13, Y15, Y17, Candle Glow: Y00, Background: B0000, B000, B91). The image was layered on a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock (Stampin’ Up!) cut and embossed with the largest Beaded Circle Nestabilities die and the edges were paper pierced.

Different patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye Fine and Dandy True Blue paper pack was cut down to 1″ squares. A 5″ square of white cardstock was run through my Xyron machine and the 1″ squares were adhered to it. The squares were stitched over diagonally, then cut down to a circle with the smallest of the Grand Classic Circleย  Nestabilities die.ย  The circle was adhered to a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock. I placed the die used for the quilted square circle back on that circle and used it as a guide to cut down my Chocolate Chip layer.

Light Orange Core’dinations cardstock was folded in half and cut with a Grand Scallop Circleย  Nestabilities die. Brown May Arts Organdy Ribbon was tied around the quilted card layers and topped with a October Afternoon button. With the button the sentiment tag was tied on the bow as well.

The sentiment is from Whimsy’s Oval Snippet. It was stamped on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut and embossed with one of the Tag Trio dies. Lots and lots of Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles

  1. Hi Beatte, Love your cheery card. Could you please do a video showing how you used the Grand Circles to cut a card? I enjoy your cards so much, but really appreciate that you take the time to do videos of the technique as well. It’s easier when I can ‘see’ what you are doing, rather than visualize it from written directions. Thanks for sharing.
