One Piece of Mirri board = three cards

I have a lot of Mirri board (mirror shine card) sitting unused and unloved in a draw, so a while a go I set myself the challenge of creating something with some of it. From one A6 piece of card I was able to create these three cards.  A big thanks to Kathy Racoosin for giving me the idea to use the die waste for a card too!


I die cut a spellbinders ornament from Mirri card and then added a window with a spellbinders inverted scallop die, the Hedgehog is by Penny Black "Bearing Gift" 1861E (he is now available in the clear set "Christmas Critters" 30-006 and has been coloured with Copic markers.  The background card has been stamped with Penny Black cling "Circles and Lines" stamp 40-084.  I then created this variation using the waste card from the bauble using the same stamps.

 
Finally I used the waste from the inverted scallop window to create this card


Again the background has been stamped with Penny Black cling "Circles and Lines" stamp 40-084, the robin and sentiment has been stamped from the clear set "Winter Wonderland" 30-083 and coloured with Copics.

Thanks for visiting and all your lovely comments, they mean so much to me.
Hugs Cathy

Brilliant use of the Mirri - I too have stacks of it. I love the way you layered that inverted scallop with the scalloped circle & your use of the traditional colours. Isn't it amazing how different all these look? Hope you are recovering well from the surgery.

The Mirri board is striking. So fun to see it used in different ways.
