I wanted to make a birthday card for my friends little girl, but could not decide what to make. I remembered some wrapping paper that I had that was red with white polka dots. My daughters and I kept saying that it looked like Minnie Mouse paper. That is how I got my idea. It could be a card and a package decoration!
For Minnie Mouse, I used the Cricut Mickey Font cartridge. I used my Gypsy (Design Studio also works for this). To create the base for the card I used the shadow feature for Minnie on page 127. The image was 5.3" and I copied it and flipped it horizontally, then I welded it on the left corner at the ear. For the front of the card, I cut Minnie Mouse and her various layers at 5.3" using black for the base, flesh color for the face, white for the eyes, pink for the tongue and red for the bow. I then embossed the bow with Swiss dots to give it some dimension.
For the inside of the card, on the left side, I stamped "Happy Birthday" in red (My Pink Stamper Cupcake Puns). On the right side, I used the phrase "Oh My!" from page 127. I cut all of the letters and phrases at .75". I used blue (to match the ribbon on the package) for the shadow on all of the letters and phrase. I cut the phrase and #3 (with no creative feature) from a red and white polka dot paper. I cut the name in green (to match the other ribbon on the package).
