So here we are again with our mouse decoupage
and the matching backing paper, which I decided I really had to use at least once!
I covered the inside of the card, and the half front with the backing paper, ensuring that both sheets were the same way up. It took one and a half sheets of the backing paper.
I matted the main mouse image on to the pale green to make the topper as before, predictably I suppose, but I really do think it sits well on the green. I used foam pads to fix the star and candy canes, but opted not to use the spare apples and gifts.
Nor did I use the matching greeting. Instead I took a simple gold "confetti" phrase of "Merry Xmas", which I placed at an angle across the top left. I took three tiny gold "confetti" stars and placed them on the tree with tiny dabs of PVA glue. I didn't use any glitter glue this time - with all that busy background I wanted to keep the topper relatively simple and understated. I was surprised at how much I actually liked the backing paper once I was using it!
So, there you are, three quite different cards from one "freebie" decoupage design. Do you have a preference? amd why that one?
