Hello Sunny friends. It’s Bobbi Lemanski here with a tempting card… well at least for these cute cats in the windows! All four cats have spotted this cute little birthday mouse, biking by with a balloon bouquet attached. Did someone say birthday dinner?!
I’m using the new Sunny Studio Stamps, Birthday Mouse stamps and dies as well as the Birthday Cats stamps and dies. The windows were made using the set, Wonderful Windows dies. My card measures 5″ X 7″, but could be made in any size.
To make this card, I started with a background of stripes using paper from the Subtle Grey Tones paper pack. It reminds me of exterior house siding. I added two windows using the Wonderful Windows dies. I adhered pink floral paper to the backs of the windows to look like wallpaper on the inside of the house. This paper is from the Spring Fever paper pack. Curtains were made using the Notebook paper dies (I used the inverse die cut for the white pom pom trim.) and green polka dotted printed paper. I added four cats – two stacked in each window – to the inside of the windows and altered their eyes using a marker to keep all eyes on the prize!
I stamped and colored the mouse image and stamped the phrase from the set inside the middle balloon. The mouse was attached using foam tabs to make him stand out. I created some shrubs by dotting cardstock with three shades of green Copics and hand cutting a soft shrub top line. A black strip at the bottom grounds the mouse and acts as a road/sidewalk. Lastly, I attached some enamel dots in green and pink rhinestones above the balloons for a festive look.
