"Micey" Nice Birthday

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's been a while since I created a Reveal Wheel card, so when Lawn Fawn released a few stamps and die that would work with the Reveal Wheel dies I of course had to add them to my stash!

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

To create the background of my card I used Honey Bee Stamps Perfect Bricks stencil. I think this is definitely my new favorite brick stencil to use. I used blending brushes to add Rusty Hinge Distress Oxide inks to my background. 

I die cut the stencilled background using Lawn Fawn's Reveal Wheel die. 

I also created a thinner piece of stencilled bricks to go on the side of the card under the half circle for when the card was put together.

To decorate my card I used stamps from Lawn Fawn's You're Just My Type, Love Poems and Elphie Selfie.

I had planned to put the mouse that is on the floor sitting at the typewriter, but as I had stamped the smiley face on the typewriter and you couldn't see this with the mouse sitting at the typewriter, I decided to move it to the floor.

The larger "mouse" themed sentiment is from an older Penny Black stamp I have had in my stash for years. 

Here is a look at each of the 4 messages which are revealed when you turn the wheel at the side of the card.

I used papers from Lawn Fawn's Spring Fling Paper Pad to add to the card base, before adhering the Reveal Wheel portion of the card.

For the inside of the card I used a rectangle die from Heffy Doodle's Imperial Stitched Rectangles die set. I added the left over patterned paper that I used on the front along the bottom of this panel.

I splattered blue pearl paint over the white portion of the card.

I added the typewriter with paper to my card and then the little mouse sitting at the typewriter. I also added another of the sentiments from the stamp sets.

To finish off the inside of my card, I added another "mousey" themed birthday sentiment, again from Penny Black.
