Minnie Mouse Birthday Card

This Minnie Mouse card was created for my niece's birthday.


Since I wanted Minnie Mouse's dress to be out of the same cardstock as the background, which is a pink from the DCWV shimmer paper stack, I first cut the overall piece the size I needed to cover the base of the card.  Then I made the dress cut with my Cricut inside that piece.  I knew that I was planning to place some patterned cardstock over the top of this, and that would cover the spot where I had cut the dress out.



I decided I wanted to give a little extra shimmer to Minnie's outfit, so I grabbed my lavender iCraft Deco Foil and Zig 2 way pen.  I covered the belt/sash portion of the dress with glue using my Zig pen.


Then I placed the iCraft Deco Foil over the top and rubbed with my finger.  


When I pulled the foil off, you can see that it stuck where I had applied the glue.


The finished card was one that shimmered and put a smile on my niece's face for her first birthday!


Make sure to stop back next weekend!  I am hosting a Disney Pixar Blog Hop!  We have a line up of 5 crafters who will all be sharing Disney or Pixar inspired projects.
