Strawberry Mouse House

This is my card for the Gerda Steiner Progressive challenge using the Strawberry Mouse.  The card base is an extra one I had laying around from a previous card. I die cut the door and stamped it with a wood grain stamp and sponged it with Tim Holtz distress inks.  I cut the door panel off at the same angle as my wooden floor and scored in the baseboard on the bottom. I stamped the sentiment using my Misti.

 I popped up the card front onto the base using foam tape. I printed and colored my strawberry mouse using Copic Markers.

 I ended up cutting two of the strawberries off so it would look right and the strawberries weren't in the air since I wanted him inside the door.  ( I placed the cut pieces back around the mouse in the photo above so you can see what it would have looked like. )

 I printed out another Strawberry Mouse for the inside and colored only one strawberry. I also added another wood floor for him to sit on.  A smaller mouse was printed and I cut it out using a tag die and matted it with red and trimmed 1/16 inch around it with my Perfect Layers tools. I punched the end of the tag with a 1/4 hole punch and added ribbon.
