First up, a Minnie Mouse birthday card. I made this with free clip art I found on the Internet. I paired it with digital patterned paper by Digital Fun (on Etsy) on a card base of Real Red. I made the base slightly narrower than the norm at 3 7/8″ so the balloons extend over the edge. I matted each of the patterned papers and the focal image on black to make it pop. I cut the balloons on my Silhouette. Inside, a little play on words with Minnie Mouse as the inspiration.
Next we have Pluto. Those of you who have come to know me a bit through my blog are already aware I’m a real dog lover. This card, or at least the sentiment is inspired by Katy. She can be sound asleep three rooms away, but when I open a cabinet or the refrigerator she’s right there hoping to seize the opportunity for food. Again the image was free clip art. The digital patterned paper by KBKreations209 (Etsy). The Basic Black card base was cut to create a pop out card and the mat color was selected to highlight the patterned paper.
Now, I know Tinkerbell isn’t in Mickey’s inner circle of friends, but she is definitely a well-known and well-loved Disney character; so I’m sharing a card for all those who share that love for Tinkerbell.
This card was created thanks to the generosity of my blogging friend Kelly who, when I asked her about this card on her blog, gave me her entire cut file. So, thank you Kelly. I appreciate your generosity and I want you to know I’m paying it forward by offering to help people I meet through my blog.
Years ago, at least ten, we were at Disney World and attended a behind the scenes celebration to honor Margaret Kerry, the model after whom Tinkerbell was patterned. Here is a picture of her in 2005.
And here she is in the 1950’s:
If you find this interesting and would like to more about how Margaret became Tinkerbell, you can read an article about her here.
I have some blog candy today for my subscribers/followers only. To be entered to win a Tinkerbell scrapbook kit by Applegate Production all you have to do is tell me in the comments section which Disney character is your favorite and why. The winner will be picked at random. Good luck!
