Today’s card is for this week’s Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #60.

I had a little fun with this sketch by making it a square 4-1/4″ bifold design.

To keep the card/flap closed, a magnetic snap was incorporated into the flap and the corresponding image panel.

The Waltzing Mouse stamps are a clear photopolymer which makes it possible to bend and manipulate them a little.  By putting a small piece of removal double sided tape on the acrylic block to help hold the stamp in place, and also placing the die cut that was used for the flap on the block, I curved the sentiment stamp to match the curvature of the circular die.

And because the stamps are clear, placement was easy.

So glad you stopped by today.  Hope your weekend is a great one.  Happy Crafting!
