House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

The Mice are Back from Vacation!!!
Goooooooood Morning House Mouse Lovers! The Mice and their friends are back from vacation...and ready to play :)

This weeks challenge is by Janneke. Create anything that you would give a gift card in. The only requirement is to use at least 1 House Mouse or Friends image on your project. For all the details and to see creations by the design team click HERE.

I made a super simple gift card holder. With this design and layout you can quickly create a gift card holder - or even put a picture on there.
Cardstock base is 4" x 10". Score at 5 1/2". Put 1/8" tape down the shorter edges on the inside and adhere. Inside card is 3 1/4" x 5 1/4".

Even if you don't have a punch to make the slots to hold the card - you can use double sided sticky tape to hold it in. Or a perfect place to put a photo. This would also be super cute with some double-sided patterned cardstock. If your giftcard or picture is landscape...just design your card that way instead :)

The Balloon is covered with Crystal Effects.

I hope you have time this week to join us and make a gift card. We love to see all the wonderful creations using your House Mouse images.
