Stamp of the month for november - Balancing holiday mouse


Goodmorning, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today I am posting a card for the monthly challenge from Gerda Steiner designs. If you participate in this challenge you have to but the image if you are participating for the first time. If you then enter the challenge with a card, you autuomatically get the image for next month for free!



For the november challenge you have to make a card with the image Balancing holiday mouse from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen and then I have fussy cut the image. I decided to make a shakercard with this cute mouse. With the Crea-nest-lies XXL 51, 53 and 55 from Crealies I made a rectangle panel with an oval opening in it. With the oval dies I also made an oval frame that I adhered around the oval opening. For the background of my shakercard I used black and white dotted design paper from the Do what you love - Pretty paper bloc from Marianne design. I filled the shaker with Sparkling clear 3mm and Marshmallow 4mm sequins from Pretty pink posh and star sequins from an unknown brand. I adhered the shaker part on a white card. On a piece of red cardstock I stamped a sentiment from the stampset Tiny type from Clearly besotted stamps with versamark ink and then I embossed it with white embossingpowder. With black ink I stamped a little star from the stampset Perfectly penned from Concord & 9th a couple of times on the card.
