Mimi‘s Lots of Heart card gives us an idea of where the term “busy as a beaver” comes from! There’s lots of activity with these Wood You Be Mine beavers! They are busy sending a sweet and punny Valentine message!

Mimi started with a Watercolor Wishes Rainbow background. Then she added a Heart Garden Border along the bottom and another one (minus the heart flowers) on the top. She used the Knit Picky Winter Itchy Sweater green paper for the grass and Lost Mitten pink for the Heart Garland Backdrop: Landscape!

She got really clever and used masking to create the gnawed bit in this log. She found a cupcake with a bite in the Birthday Before ‘n Afters set and masked everything but the toothy bite. Then she masked the bite and stamped the log over the top.

Mimi also masked the heart in the image of the two beavers before stamping them. Then she masked the beavers to stamp the chewed logs. The “I chews you” sentiment is so perfect with this unique scene!

Thanks so much for inspiring us today, Mimi! This card is so creative and fun!

  1. Mimi and LF –
    This is ridiculously good. I love it! There are so many details and layers… the “trees” at the top made from the same border as the bottom minus the flowers, the watercolor wishes blue paper in the background, the knit picky frame and – OF COURSE – the completely adorable scene featuring the beavers. LOVE THIS!
