House Mouse #63 - Multifold card

Happy House Mouse Monday everyone - Christine issued this weeks challenge over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog - we are to make a multi fold card - any size or shape with more than one fold.

This week we have a sponsor "Scrapbook Store at Your Door" - the prize is a Gruffie image "All warm and furry" plus a 6x6 BG Nook and Pantry paper pad. To be eligible for this weeks prize please follow the challenge and the entry rules in the HMF side bar.

I chose to make mine a Tri-shutter card. Here is the link on Splitcoast Stampers for a tutorial.
Below is a closeup of the first panel - image is "Don't crack under Pressure".
Below is a close up of the middle panel image - called " Easter surprise".
Below is a close up of the last panel - image is called "This eggs for you".
I used three House Mouse images on my tri-shutter card. "Don't crack under pressure", Easter surprise" and "This eggs for you" plus the sentiment. I coloured the images with Prisma colour pencil crayons and gamsol. I clear embossed all the eggs. The image with the mouse juggling the eggs was stamped twice. I cut out the the mouse and eggs for one image and layered over top base image. I coloured three more eggs to place on the center image panel. Added the pink bunny brad. I made the polka dot dp, used Stamping Up Itty Bitty background stamp with Pale Plum and Sage Shadow inks. Sponged all the edges of plaid dp and polka dot dp. Matted all panels with lilac and sewed edges. Attached the flower brads to top center panel. Used SU scalloped border punch on two vertical side panels...
I hope you will be able to join us at House Mouse and Friends Challenge blog.. please check out what the other talented DT members have come up with to inspire you.

Thanks for stopping by,Happy stamping.
