Countdown to Confetti - Day 1


Hello Hello!  It's that time again!  The Countdown to Confetti has begun!  Over the next few days, we will be sharing all of the new release goodies with you, and the December release will be available in the Reverse Confetti store on December 8th!



Today, we are showcasing my most favorite of the release, Mouse Mail!  It's no secret that I love the critter series from Reverse Confetti, and this is no exception.  These adorable mice are close to the top of my favorites list.  A fast favorite for sure!  Who wouldn't love to see these cuties in their mailbox?!


Mouse Mail

To create my card, I started off with a piece of white cardstock cut to 4" by 5.5". I masked off the bottom of the cardstock and used an ink blending tool to add blue to the sky, then masked the sky area, and sponged green for the grass.  I added a stitched edge to the panel on all four sides using the Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts. I stamped, colored and diecut the adorable images from Mouse Mail and arranged them on the panel, gluing the mailbox with a glue pen and popping the mice up  with foam tape.  I added a few stacks of letters, also from the set, and then added some puffy clouds from the Weather it Together stamp set.  I stamped a sentiment from Mouse Mail on a hand cut banner, and stapled it to the panel, then popped the panel up on a Brick cardstock base using foam tape.

Mouse Mail

That's all for me today!  But be sure to visit the Reverse Confetti blog to see lots more inspiration from the design team!

Thanks for stopping by! :)
