My daughter asked me to make a card for her friend's birthday. Apparently she loves Mickey Mouse and having never made a MM card, I turned to my endless source of inspiration, blog-land. Thanks to a very talented lady by the name of Michelle Reynolds, I was able to C.A.S.E. this!
I make no apology for casing - Michelle had done a perfect card, so why mess with perfection?!
My card is however, larger than standard. I started with a whole piece of A4 in Real Red and folded it in half. The Basic Black layer has been run through the Big Shot with a Textured Impressions Plate (I bought it when I was a demo in the U.S.). Thank goodness I still had it - it allows you to dry emboss a piece of cardstock that's almost A5 in size.
I used the 1 3/4" circle for the head, and 1 1/4" circle for the ears in the main Mickey. The sentiment is from Word Play. The word "Dream" is a stamp I had in my stash which I punched out using the Decorative Label. But I may just have to buy the set "Loving Thoughts" on page 20 of the current mini now!
The 3 smaller Mickey's were made using the 1" & 3/4" circle punches. Unfortunately, the gingham ribbon is retired. I do wish they'd bring it back.....pleeeeeease! The scallop trim border punch, and corner rounder punch adds a little extra detail.
Thanks for looking!
Have a super day.
