Mouse Toasts Marshmellow Masculine Birthday Card

With several suggestions from my husband, I created this 3D masculine birthday card for a 14 year old friend of ours. We enjoy camping with him and his family, so we thought the mouse roasting a marshmellow was appropriate. And in keeping with creating an interactive card for kids….we added a real marshmallow and stick on the inside!

We happened to have some William Sonoma individually wrapped marshmellows on hand so I taped one to the top flap of the inside of the card. Then I cut out a square on the bottom flap of the card so the marshmallow can stick out the back of the card enabling the card to close.

I did have to pierce the marshmallow wrapping so that I could deflate the package to enable it to fit through the square. Another solution would have been to cut out a larger square for the marshmallow.

Supplies:

  • Roasting Marshmallow stamp House Mouse Designs C55
  • Mouse footprint stamp House Mouse Designs HMA1003
  • Birthday Greeting stamp Printwork Designs G1153
  • 1 1/2 Wavy Square for Cuttlebug 2×2 wavy squares
  • 1 piece Dark Brown Cardstock
  • 1 piece Green Cardstock
  • 2 pieces Cream Cardstock
  • black StazOn inkpad
  • embossing pad
  • silver embossing powder
  • embossing gun
  • markers
  • Aqua Pen from Stampin\’ Up
  • Scotch tape
  • Double sided tape
  • glue gun
  • Individually wrapped marshmallow – I used William Sonoma (purchased at Christmas time)
  • small piece of stick

Instructions:

  1. Trim dark brown cardstock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2. Score and fold to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 with the fold at the top.

Then stamp the happy birthday onto the bottom of the brown cardstock on the bottom right sid. Put powder on image. Remove access powder then heat emboss.
