Fractured Mini Slimline Cards.....

 Hello again, yes these Fractured cards are really addictive and I tried the technique on a mini slimline card. I love the mini slimline cards for putting a bit of "folding money" in it fits perfect with no folding an end over. While searching for something in my stash of "stuff" a long diamond die set popped up, never even been taken apart, so you know it's a NBUS. When I saw it I immediately thought I could make a fractured mini slimline card using it instead of a square, it did take some extra time to cut the 1/4 inch strip ends so the next one fit perfect. I did use just a single piece of patterned paper as it was my first try, next I will try one with different pieces of paper. 

Of course I needed to use my house mouse Easter stamps, I coloured and fussy cut (what a nightmare) and popped them up of the diamond shape. Both patterned paper was from 2 different paper pads from Bo Bunny.

This one has Maxwell Mouse holding his supply of Easter Eggs. Beside the card is the set of Diamond dies now detached from each other but I need to get them in a CD case with a magnetic pad. 

I think this is Monica Mouse having a nap after eating all the  filling from the Easter Creme Egg.

I am entering this in these challenges:

NBUS ~~ Challenge 61

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge ~~ Use some Designer Paper

Critter Crazy Challenge ~~ Challenge #85 anything goes with a critter.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great week.

You have a good eye for design, Barb! That is a cool diamond die and it goes perfectly with the long slimline and the stripey pp! The diamond is also the perfect stage for showcasing those adorable critters! Thank you for inspiring everyone to use their NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
