Happy Mail is something we all love. What fun it is to find a handmade card from a crafty friend in the mailbox! Well this is Happy Mail with a difference. My mousey make for this fortnight was inspired by some organizational Youtube videos I was watching while sewing, where pin boards and peg boards were used for inspirational quotes in the organised space.
I used patterned paper for my card panel that resembles a cork board and added a frame cut out of silver metallic cardstock with stitched rectangle dies so that I had a faux stitched line in the center of the frame. I then created 3 little envelopes and inserted a little House Mouse in each one. These are from the stamps I had recently found in the destash sale. I stamped them onto Strathmore Paint Pad paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my Prismacolor pencils.
I inserted each mouse into a little envelope and glued it onto my pin board. I stamped the happy Mail sentiment onto a small Post-it note and added brads to each item to represent push pins.
I also glued two stickers from my stash onto the pin board. Some additional brads dotted around the board completed the look.
I then mounted the “board” onto a piece of thin craft foam and then onto a top folding cardbase.
