This card is 4"x9." All the cardstock, except the white and the ivory, are from the Cafe Mediterranean Stacks by DCWV. I have had these two stacks for two or three years now and had never used them, so I thought it was about time. I used some patterned cardstock for the card base, then rounded the corners with a Fiskars punch. I cut some ivory cardstock at 3 3/4"x3 3/4" and rounded its corners as well. I then cut some glittery blue cardstock 1/8" smaller and rounded its corners. The presents are cut from Jolly Holidays at 3 1/2." Who knew the first project I would make using Jolly Holidays wouldn't even be a Christmas one?! The mouse is from Meow and cut at 2 1/4." I flocked the white part of him and used a black gem for his eye. I used foam adhesive to adhere him to the card for some dimension. I wrapped the other side of the card with two pieces of ivory ribbon. My sentiment is actually created from two different stamps. The "have a mice" is from a stamp by My Pink Stamper and "birthday" comes from a Scrappy Moms Stamp. You can see the two individual stamps and how they are supposed to look at the bottom right. I matted the sentiment with some glittery blue and green cardstocks and adhered it over the ribbon.
