One of the New Year's resolutions I made this year was to use more of my old stamps and quit buying new. It's really hard when you get all the pretty new releases in the inbox, but I have been good so far and haven't bought new stamps yet this year (besides one old PSX stamp from ebay - couldn't resist!)
So for today's card I used a stamp from the old Stampin Up set "Happy Heart Day". I thought this cute mouse would work well for a masculine card. I plan on giving this one to my son for Valentines Day. Hope he doesn't mind the Wink of Stella shimmer I added to the heart 😀.
The mouse was heat embossed on Bristol Vellum card then colored using Zig Clean Color brush pens. I tried to keep the card simple, but I did use an embossing folder for the background to add a little bit of interest. Eyelets are another one of my crafty things that I don't use often, but I thought they were perfect for this card sketch. Sentiment is from the set "So Very Much" by Penny Black. I used a few candy dots by Stampin up to add some color to the sentiment.
A little close up above. The heart is covered in Wink of Stella, but it's really hard to see in the photos. The image panel has been popped up on dimensionals.
