Lights, Candles, Action!

Hi and welcome to my blog! Being a guest designer for the House Mouse and Friends has been so much fun! I love the theme for this new challenge - Interactive Card. I enjoy making action cards so I made this a wiper card. I learned to make this type of card many years ago and while rummaging through my stash I ran across one. I decided to make some more since it had been a long time.

Here is the front of the card.

When you pull on both sides of the card at the same time this little guy pops up! This mousie acts like a car wiper. He goes down when you shut the card and slides up when you open the card.

As you can see I used a lot of fun, bright patterned paper. I stamped the Mice Wishes stamp, colored and cut out the image using a Spellbinders Labels 8 die. I colored using Spectrum Noir markers and colored pencils. Cord and enamel dots were used to finish the card. The cute little mouse at the top was fussy cut and added to a small acetate piece. I stamped the saying in red, punched it out with a circle punch and adhered it to his feet.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a very "mice" day!
