Surprise Mouse Hug Card

A Surprise Mouse Hug Card is just what your friend needs when you want to send them a little encouragement. I paired the Hooray For Surprises as well as the Hugs & Hearts stamp-and-die bundles with the new In Color glimmer paper for a fun card full of hugs.

Right underneath the heart that says “pull” is a mouse with a hug for your recipient. I just love this cutie!

How to make a Surprise Mouse Hug Card:

Cut your cardstock:

  • Berry Burst: 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”, folded at 4-1/4”
  • Shy Shamrock Glimmer Paper: 3-1/2” x 4-1/4”, plus scraps for leaves around edges
  • Daffodil Delight: (3) 3-1/4” x 4”, plus scraps for flowers around edges

Adhere from the bottom up:

  • Using small dabs of glue, adhere the glimmer leaves and the flowers around the edge of your card front.
  • Next, adhere the Shy Shamrock glimmer piece at an angle on top of that.

Create the Surprise:

To see the steps to easily use these Surprise dies, check out my previous tutorial here.

  • Three pieces of Daffodil Delight are needed: For the decorated top, for the surprise inside, and for your template.
  • Stamp the surprise layer (using your template to center it within the heart) using memento ink for the mouse and Berry Burst ink for the “sending a big hug” sentiment.” Then adhere this to the glimmer piece. The template can now be discarded (or used for another card).
  • Next, stamp the decorated top layer with Berry Burst ink for the hearts and the large polka dot heart, memento ink for the “pull,” and Shy Shamrock ink for the sentiment.
  • Lastly, adhere this decorated layer on top of your surprise yellow layer — ensuring you don’t put adhesive on the back of the heart that needs to be easily pulled off!
