Di's Digi Stamps Maurice the Mouse get well card

Get Well card featuring Di's Digi Stamps Maurice the Mouse, by Paperesse.

I whipped up this get well card for a friend using Di's Digi Stamps Maurice the Mouse digi.  The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly Barbara Anne Williams Sweet Kitchen Sentiments sheet. These sentiment sheets go perfectly with Di's images (I pair them often), as on this Some Bunny Loves You Easter card.

Maurice was fussy cut and mounted against a second colored print out of the image for a 3D effect. Well, I say that – yes, it does give a 3D effect, but that's not why I decided to do it. When I colored Maurice the first time I forgot he was a mouse and thought his tail was ribbon and colored it pink. Ditto for the rose stalk ends. Only when I thought I was done did I realize my error. Rather than color the whole thing all over again I just reprinted the digi and colored the flowers and tail. Then fussy cut the main-Maurice and placed him against the corrected flowers and tail. Card Save 101.

Paper is a mix of discount store types. Embellishments are a simple wooden flower and pearl.

  1. Adorable card. Thank you for playing along with our Challenge at Digi Designs. We would love to see you again ... Anet DTx

  2. So pretty! The colours are lovely. Guaranteed to make anyone feel better. Good save....I may have done something similar a time or two myself. :)

  3. That cute critter and pretty paper will certainly make someone feel better!

  4. LOL! I had to run out and get the card off our console to make sure it was the same one! It is - and it is even better in real life! The depth, colors and image are more intense- you can see so much texture. I must admit, I was really excited that you had made a 3-D image... but I have to laugh that it was used to hide an error - good for you Shani! Love this card girlfriend - it must have cost a fortune to mail due to it's weight alone!

  5. Thank you so much for entering our ATG challenge at Through The Craft Room Door this week. Looking forward to see you again next challenge.
