Happy Heart Day Card Recipe

If you were not able to attend my January Card Club, but still want to make the Valentine's Day Card pictured below, here is the recipe. Please keep in mind that I lovingly referred to this card as the "Card of 1,000 Pieces," but boy is it cute! It's certainly one I would just make a few of and give to the special people on my V-Day list! Thanks to zanynotcrazy.blogspot.com for the idea!
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Rose Red, Regal Rose
Stamp Set: Happy Heart Day
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Rose Red Double-Sided Designer Series Prints Paper, Scallop Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, chocolate chip taffeta ribbon, white gel pen, stampin' dimensionals (or left-over rubber from cutting out stamps), and glue stick.

First, stamp entire mouse image onto the Rose Red Double-Sided Paper in basic black. Cut this out as your base. I cut a little around the outside of the image to leave the black outline. Then, stamp the mouse image onto the Creamy Caramel Cardstock and cut out the mouse's body. Adhere this to the double-sided paper. Then, stamp the image a third time onto Regal Rose Cardstock. Cut out the mouse's shirt and adhere to the caramel. WHEW! Finally, use the white gel pen to color in the flower in the heart on the Rose Red Double-Sided Paper and also the mouse's collar and belt. Attach mouse to card with stampin' dimensionals (or left-over rubber) to make him stand up off the card.
