Have a Very Mice Day!

Happy April Fool's Day! I hope you won't get fooled too much today. I want to share a card I made using acetate. I always love to see cards made with acetate but I have not made many myself. I enjoyed very much making this card! Here is the card when it is closed.

I embossed the acetate using a Sizzix frame embossing folder. I stamped the mouse image onto white card stock and cut him out using the Gina Marie stitched circle die. The mouse was colored using Spectrum Noir markers. I added Sparkle translucent embossing powder ( courtesy of Sparkle N Sprinkle ) on the pink flower. The lace corners are from Cheery Lynn and the butterflies are from Tim Holtz's Butterfly Frenzy die.

Here is the card slightly opened so that you can see the acetate front better.

This is the inside of the card. I used light teal card stock and placed a sea grass stencil from Tattered Angels over it and sprayed Dragonfly Glimmer Mist over it. The saying I had was long, but I needed to fit it on the circle, so I inked the saying half way and stamped it on top and then inked the stamped on the other half of the saying and stamped it underneath.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a very MICE day! LOL!
