Zodiac Ox and Mouse with Nichol + THANK YOU SALE

Hello friends! Nichol here today with two tall and skinny card ideas with the new Zodiac Ox and Zodiac Mouse stamp sets from Mama Elephant. I have been loving the look of tall & skinny cards here lately and these fun extended tall designs are the perfect backdrop for cute scenes.
Both cards measure 3 1/2" x 9". I started by trimming a piece of smooth white cardstock to 7" x 9" and scoring in half to create the card base.

For this Zodiac Ox card the background was created by die cutting the Grassy Trio Die three times and inking the borders with two shades of green ink. The background was inked with aqua ink and the borders were placed along the bottom edge of the card.

The images from Zodiac Ox were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with a no line coloring ink and colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers before being die cut with the coordinating dies.

The Thanks Script Creative Cuts die was die cut from smooth white cardstock adhered to Fun Foam with Stick It Adhesive and inked with red ink before being adhered to the card.

The sentiment from Zodaic Ox was stamped on black cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The phrase was die cut with a Sentiment Strip die and adhered to the card with foam adhesive.

The background for the Zodiac Mouse card was created by inking a 3 1/2" x 9" panel of smooth white cardstock with two shades of yellow ink and die cutting circles from the Sew Fancy Creative Cuts to create "cheese". 

The "hugs" greeting from the Tri Window Creative Cuts was cut from the background. A sentiment from the Zodiac Mouse Stamp Set was stamped below the die cut greeting. The circles were adhered directly to the card base and the panel adhered with foam adhesive. Two layers of Fun Foam "hugs" greetings were adhered to the card, finishing with the yellow inked greeting. A layer of Glossy Accents finishes the dimensional greeting.
