House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

Time for another House Mouse & Friends Challenge

Challenge #63: Multi-Fold Card
This weeks challenge is by Christine. Create a card that has more than 1 fold. Make any card you want as long as you have 2 or more folds and use at least 1 House Mouse & Friends image on it. And I believe there is a prize this time around!!! Check out all the challenge and prize details on the HM & Friends Challenge Blog. And if you have sure and check out the other designers creations.

I decided to make what's called a Joy Fold Card. You can find instructions HERE on Splitcoaststampers.

This House Mouse image is another one that I stamped from my friend Cynthia. It's called Confetti Rain. Perfect for this time of year...don't cha think? And if you look reeeeal can see where I stamped footprints on the front left panel...and the inside panel.

I don't know about you...but I like to zoom in on pictures. So if you wanna see more away on my pics :)

There's a touch of Glitter on each piece of confetti. A portion of the umbrella is paper pieced with dimensional tape. check out the ring of rhinestones. Do you know how hard it is to stop hoarding stuff like that....saving it for that special project?? Whatever Lori! Use it or loose it! LOL!

I stamped 2 mouse feet and punched out with 1/2" circle punch for the center embellishment. Then topped it off with one of those cool EK Success Tile Stickers.

Here's the card opened up. More mouse feet stamped really light all over in blue -- the sentiment in a darker blue.

Then.....all the sudden.....from outta NOWHERE...dirty feet went walkin' across my paper!

I added glittered around then entire inside piece..PLUS...some dots of glitter pen on the sentiment.

WHEW! Now go have fun playing with YOUR House Mouse stamps!

Fabulous card Lori, love the image and the stunning colours and papers.
You certainly had a high old time with the bling on the sentiment. Funny about the dirty feet wandering across the paper, I get that, only mine tend to be cat paw prints as my cat walk across my palette and then card. Cat paw prints - not good on a mousie card.

Lori, you put a lot of thought into making such a detailed and clever card -- confetti rain is perfect for the Phoenix area too! Congratulations on "unhoarding" some of your glitz! That's a hard thing to do --but really made this one stand out -- footprints and all.

OMG the footprints are precious! I never would have thought of that! It actually looks like my kitchen floor right now, but my prints are canine! How my dogs can find mud in 5" of snow is beyond me! this whole card! Your coloring is amazing and the layout and embellies are perfect!
