I started off not knowing what to do with all these gorgeous symbol sentiments – I simply didn’t know which way they should be read! But once again the set has been designed so brilliantly, that they are in the correct orientation on the packaging! Sooo nice since they are gorgeous on the cards.
So, I decided on the Happy New Year sentiment and stamped it once in red using my MISTI tool, then moving my cardstock to the left and right, I stamped the same sentiment in light grey. Then did the same once above and below the red sentiment. Finally I cut down the panel and added it to a light grey card base, leaving a 1/8 inch border all the way around.
Since I wanted to keep the color scheme very simple to make the red sentiment pop, I colored one of the mice from Zodiac Mouse white and cut it out with the matching die.
To make the card a lot of fun, I used a mini action wobble to attach the mouse to the front, right next to the red sentiment. The action wobble makes him dance and have fun – so perfect for this otherwise super simple card.
If you want to watch him move, you can see it in my Instagram post for this card.
