Re-done Mouse Card


I made this card in my early days of card making but it was just the mouse stamp layed onto square red card with gold peel off photo corners stuck in each corner. This was then stuck onto the white card on sticky pads with a gold peel off "Happy Birthday" underneath. Funnily enough it never sold! So I thought I'd have a go at re-doing it. I took the mouse stamp on the red card off and trimmed it with a "shortwave" edging. I cut a strip of stipey paper with the "shortwave" edging to match then wrapped the ribbon round it before attaching it to the card. I then re-mounted the mouse stamp over the top and added the two flowers with the brad in the middle to the bottom corner. I took the peel off "Happy Birthday" off the bottom and to hide the mark it left I covered it with the "Happy Birthday" banner and added some pink brads. I think it looks much better now! It's a shame I can't find the original scan I took. If I come across it I'll add it so you can do a spot the difference.
