Show Me the LOVE!!!

This week's House Mouse and Friends challenge is all about showing some love.  What with Valentine card making in full-swing this is a very timely challenge.  Also, it is House Mouse, and what is not to love about House Mouse?!
For this challenge I pulled out an old, well-used and well-loved stamp along with some bits of Valentine's goodies I had out on my desk.  I made the glitter hearts glittery.  It was my Spica pen's last gasp, but never fear I have another one ready to go.  I really liked how I found a scrap of cardstock that was the same shade and same amount of glittery-ness as the hearts I colored in so I could make a large glitter heart to embellish my card with.
I thought I'd get fancy with the inside of the card and instead of just putting a die cut greeting in it, I'd use the negative of the greeting instead.  That meant I had to carefully pry out the inside of the "L" and "E" to glue down.  In the end, you can't tell from the photo that you are seeing the back of the card through the greeting, but it in real life it is pretty nifty.
The Fine Print: HM stamp by Stamp Rosa, heart die from Cheery Lynn, flowers by Prima, love die cut A Muse Studio.

Well, are you clever today with the inside of your card.

You always do such nice cards PJ, and this one is no exception.

I haven't touched my HM stamps in a very long time. But you have given me some inspiration. Thanks!

Di said...

Di again! Giggling here - ask me how I know you have to cut from each side when doing that triple layer patterned paper trick :)

And the second card IS very bright I agree - don't need any light on in the craft room right now!

Hugs, Di xx

Very cure card inside and out. I like the idea of putting a flower inside the heart. I'll have to try that one. Hearts are just glittery enough, perfect. Thanks for playing along with us here are House Mouse & Friends this week.

To answer your ?, There's Nothing not to love about HMouse!(?mice?). This one's super adorable, and you have a winner with all the glitter & pink. Don't you just love those spicas? My clear is going south, so I will have to restock a couple. This is a super cute card, and loved your idea for the inside too. Perfect way to use the negative. TFS & Hugs
