House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

Shape Up!!

LOL...yes...I'm talkin' to YOU! I said "SHAPE UP!" -- a card that is :)

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #30 - Shaped Card
This weeks challenge to make a card any shape EXCEPT square or rectangle. Use at least 1 HM or Friends image. Now hop over HERE and check out what the Design Team came up with. I was blown away with these fantastic shaped creations!!!



My card shape comes from a Sizzix Die I got from Stampin'UP! I cut 2 pieces...then scored card front 1" in & taped it together. My House Mouse Image is called "Mouse Drops." I colored with Copic Markers this time. A little sanding and chalking...a simple mat behind the image...a bow...some mouse tracks...DONE!

Well...not completely done...here's the inside ;)

Happy Stamping all you Mouse Lovers!! Now SHAPE UP and get to stamping! LOL!

Oh my goodness! This card is adorable! I love this shaped card! And that stamp is just the cutest. Do you (by any chance)know if this die can be used in the Cuttlebug? I've been trying to find out, but nobody seems to know. Thanks! :)
