Happy Wednesday Honey Bee friends! Today I’m sharing a cute mini slimline card I made using the totally adorable Merry Little Mice stamps and coordinating Honey Cuts. I made an inky, snowy background with lots of sparkles and spatters to set the scene for the mice–keep reading for the details.

First I die cut some watercolor paper with the largest die from Sweet Stacks: Mini Slimline Honey Cuts. Then I spritzed on some Villainous Potion Distress Oxide Spray near the top of the card. I used a paper towel to dab up some of the color and then dried it with my heat tool. I don’t have the Oxide Sprays of my next two colors, Salvaged Patina and Spun Sugar, but I do have the Oxide ink pad re-inkers. I just squeezed out a bit of the colors and used a brayer to swipe on the colors, overlapping them just a bit.

Then I used my heat tool to dry the panel, and spattered on some white gouache. I also used a white gel pen to add white dots.

Next I die cut more watercolor card with the hills in the Horizon Slimline Border Honey Cuts. I trimmed them to 3″ and glue one directly to the inky panel and popped up the second one. I then put a line of Bee Creative glue along the edges, sprinkled on some chunky glitter and set it aside to dry.

I stamped the images from the Merry Little Mice set with Intense Black ink onto 80# Neenah Solar White. I used some Copic markers to color them and then cut them out with the coordinating Honey Cuts. I added some white dots with a white gel pen to the mice’s cheeks and also to the Christmas tree. Next I stamped the sentiment from Merry Christmouse with Versamark, added black embossing powder and heat set it.  I used the coordinating Honey Cut to cut it out.

To assemble the card, I adhered the inked panel to a side-folding card base with Bee Creative Glue. You can create by scoring a piece of 6-½” x 6-¼” card stock longways at 3-¼”. I popped up all of the card images with foam tape and foam squares. I used my nonstick scissors to cut a few small foam strips for the music notes.

I decided to make a coordinating envelope to go with my mini slimline card.  I die cut some 32# printer paper I have in my stash with the Mini Slimline Envelope dies.  I adhered the pieces together with Bee Creative glue.  Then I used the Snowfall Background stencil to add some pink snowflakes to the front of the envelope.  This was really easy with a Background Blender Brush and some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink.

I added a bit more sparkle and shine by adding some Glossy Accents to the tree’s ornaments.  Then I used a clear glitter pen to add sparkle to the star and splatters to the background.

I had lots of fun making this card! And there are other adorable little mice in the Merry Little Mice set that I still need to get on a card! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day!
