Get Well Soon

This card was inspired from two sources- the band aid from Andrea Walford's project here and the little mouse from here. I gave my little mouse a mouth with a slight pout ;-). To make this card you will need the following supplies:

Stamps: Sincere Salutations
Card Stock: Blush Blossom, Basic Gray, Going Gray, Pink Pirouette (retired- you could use
Pretty in Pink), Pale Plum, Basic Black
Paper: Old Olive Designer Series Paper
Classic Stampin' Ink: Blush Blossom and Whisper White Craft ink
Punches: Ornament (Basic Gray- head)
1" Circle (Basic Gray- ears and paws- punch 4, punch 1 from Going Gray for face)
3/4" Circle (Pink Pirouette or Pretty in Pink- inside of ears- punch 2)
1/4" Circle ( Pink Pirouette or Pretty in Pink- nose)
Tear Drop (Basic Black- eyes)
Hear to Heart (Pale Plum- the small heart)
Corner Rounder (to round corners of the band aid)
Accessories: Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Stampin' Dimensionals, Black Journaler marker, White
Gel Pen

Cut card base from Basic Gray 4.25" x 5.50". Layer Old Olive Designer Series Paper (4" x 5.25") on top of card base. To create the band aid, cut Blush Blossom 1" x 3" and corner round the four corners. Cut a 1" x 1" square from Blush Blossom. Ink the edges of the 1" x 3" strip and the 1" square with Blush Blossom. Use the Mat Pack and the Paper Piercer to pierce holes in the 1" square for the center of the band aid. Add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the 1" square and adhere in the center of the 1" x 3" strip. Adhere the Pale Plum heart to the center of the pierced square. Punch out the parts for the mouse. Ink the edges of the ears, head, face (Going Gray), and the paws with Whisper White Craft ink. Do not ink the pink for the insides of the ears or the pink nose. Adhere the pink circles to the ear circles and adhere to the head. Adhere the eyes and add white gel pen lines as in the photo. Adhere the pink nose to the Going Gray circle for the face and draw the mouth with the Journaler. Add a Stampin' Dimensional to the back of the Going Gray circle and adhere to the head for his face (see photo for placement). Next, adhere the mouse head to the card front and adhere the band aid underneath. Lots of adhering going on here, lol! Now you will just need to adhere (there is that word again :-D) the paws on top of the band aid. Stamp your sentiment in Basic Gray and you are done, well except for the inside of the card :-D.

Now that I have the card in front of me while I am typing, I was thinking that it would be cute to add a little Pretty in Pink Stampin' Pastel to his little cheeks. He would look like he has a little fever :-(. Tomorrow I will be posting another Christmas card, so please be sure to stop by. Have a super wonderful weekend everyone and thanks for coming to visit!
