Cute Mice Flour Box Card

Good morning! I’m sharing a fun Video Tutorial today where I’ve created this cute box card.

I love these cute little mice and using my silhouette I purchased the flour box and knew I had to pop them onto it!
(All products are listed in the description box)
I die cut the flowers and already put them together before filming as I coloured these up before hand to save time.
You can check out the Video HERE . This also folds flat to an envelope which is super handy!

Thank you so much for popping over today!

Never Give up Hope

Hello! I have another card I’m sharing today that I created for Papermilldirect.

I’ve created a fun bright scene with some cute little critters. I think it would cheer a friend up or anyone who needs a bit of encouragement.
Products Used:
Sunlight Yellow Plain Card 240gsm

Daffodil Yellow Plain Card 240gsm

Black Plain Card 240gsm

White Card Super Smooth 300gsm

Other Products:
Sunburst Cover Plate Die (Time for tea designs)
Lucky Ducks Clear Stamp Set (Time for tea designs)
Sentiment ( Waffle flower crafts)
Clouds Die (La-La Land Crafts)
Big Flowers hand drawn by me
Mushrooms Silhouette Designs
To start with I used a piece of Sunlight Yellow Plain Card 240gsm and using the cover plate I ran this through my die cutting machine.
I adhered this onto a piece of Daffodil Yellow Plain Card 240gsm. I then stamped and coloured my images. I also went ahead and die cut the mushrooms and coloured them in. I hand drew some large flowers and added theses onto my card.
Once all my images were coloured I adhered them onto my card. I die cut some clouds using a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm and popped these onto my card.
To finish the card off I stamped my sentiment onto a piece of Black Plain Card 240gsm and using white embossing powder and I heat set the sentiment. Your card is now complete.

Have a lovely day!
