Minnie Mouse Punch Art Birthday Card

by Joanne James21. January 2019 11:00


This is my second post for you today - you can see my earlier post here in case you missed it. I managed to grab a little crafting time in my office on Saturday afternoon and having seen the challenge over at TGIF Challenges this week just knew I had to take part! I also used this week's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches for my layout:


Anyone that knows me well knows that I am a Disney addict!  For me there is only one Mickey Mouse (he lives in Florida) and Magic Kingdom is without question THE happiest place on earth (and I've done a fair bit of travelling in my time!) I've made a number of Disney-themed cards before (you can see a couple of my favourites here and here - just search my blog with the term 'Disney' to see lots of similar inspiration) and they are often rather detailed affairs, however today I went for something super-quick to make - I think I was just so excited! Here's my card:


I decided to create a fun Minnie Mouse punch art: all you need is a large circle punch (I used a 2 1/4" punch) and two smaller punched circles (I used a 1 1/4" circle punch) to create a Mickey Mouse shape. You can scale these circles according to your desired finished size. 

My card absolutely had to be red and I used a piece of retired red and white polka dot paper for the centre panel, inspired by the lovely Minnie's iconic dress; you could substitute a piece of the current Real Red spotted paper from the Regals 6x6" DSP pack if you aren't such a purist. To create Minnie's bow, I used two diecut hearts from the new Be Mine Stitched Framelits set and added a little bling with a clear faceted gem. A bold 'celebrate' sentiment diecut finished the front of my card.

With the outside taken care of, I used one of the greetings from the Magical Mermaid stamp set for the inside of my card. I inked it up with my Stampin' Write markers so that I would get the two-tone effect and could easily omit the sprig detail:


I might send this card to me, I love it so much! Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's projects for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day; I am hoping mine is going to be a productive office day - if I get all of my admin tasks completed, i may even manage a little stamping time! I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
