Oh Happy Day!   Read on for all the sweet details of this joyful Spring feeling card, suitable for so many occasions especially if you add a second sentiment on the inside tailoring it for a birthday or congratulations – whatever the occasion may be.


Hello everyone this is Nicky with you today sharing details of a new slimline card featuring the following beautiful Hello Bluebird products:-


Fairy Glade Scene Vertical Die

Field Mice

Field Mice die

Woven Background Stamp

Meadow Bunnies (sentiment)

Gallery Frame #5 die


To kick things off I die cut a slimline panel of white cardstock.  As I always like to stress, I like to use very sturdy cardstock for these scene dies because it avoids warping and therefore all the pieces will go back together like a jigsaw puzzle, no gaps and no overlapping.  I always use 110lb cover weight by Neenah.

After die cutting I ink blended all the pieces or Copic coloured them.  With the large piece that forms the sky, I popped that in my Misti and used the Woven background stamp to create some interest and then ink blended using the same ink to create a focal point and then I glued the frame to another slimline panel and filled it in with all the pieces that I’d coloured.



I stamped and coloured three of the mice from Field Mice using Copic markers, here are all the Copic colours I used on the entire project:-

Mice – E31, E41, E40, W00, R20, R00, R000

Leaves and Stems – YG03, YG01, YG0000

Pink flowers – V000, V01, BV01, BV02

Purple flowers – BV0000, BV01, BV02, R0000

I die cut the mice, backed them with foam tape and applied them to the scene then I die cut a panel with the Gallery Frame #5 and just used the scalloped frame portion to add further prettiness to the scene.

To finish up, I stamped the sentiment from Meadow Bunnies and I used a white gel pen to highlight and add interest in general to the scene with the application of dots and with that, this happy little scene of dancing mice was complete.
