Minnie Mouse Birthday Card


After I saw this cute card that Wendy made, I knew I had to CASE it and make one for my DGD Cory who celebrated her birthday yesterday. She loves Minnie Mouse and dressed up like her for Halloween so I knew this card design would be a hit.

I used some papers from Recollections and made a 5x7" card, adding a SB grommet die-cut tag personalized with her name and some black and white twisted twine. I added a SU! scalloped punched border in black behind the polka dot panel. Minnie's face was done with SB die-cut circles and a bow done with a SU! punch. I added some red gemstones along with a CB embossed panel of fun birthday wishes. 

My DIL told me she squealed when she opened her card yesterday. Mission accomplished :)

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great Wednesday!

Aw, this is just cute as a mouse! Love the red & white stripe background combined with Minnie's dots pattern. And the hairbow is just perfect for Minnie - great idea for a sweet little girl. Love the detail on how you attached the sentiment tag too. TFS & hugs
