Hiya Crafty Friends,
Tattered Lace have just launched their super cute Nursery Rhyme Collection and I got to play with the Hickory Dickory Dock clock and mouse die. What is so good about this die is it is not only great with the nursery rhyme theme but it can also be used for so many other occasions too. Like retirement, invitations, new baby…the list goes on.
I made the clock below 3d and placed in a acetate gift box I made. I left all the ‘waste’ in place to give the clock a look of being engraved, but I did take the aperture for the pendulum out.
I framed this card with the Nursery Rhyme and embellished with the little mice
I achieved quite a masculine look with this retirement card with the use of a monochrome palette.
All this collection’s dies have co-ordinating stamps, which I have used the sentiment and mouse on this card. I animated one of the mice with a pull tab so it “ran up the clock”.
