Mickey 2nd Birthday Card




Hello! Brenda from Random Thoughts of a Scrapbooker here.

I made this card for my grandson’s 2nd birthday. It is an A2 size card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2″). I used Recollections cardstock for the base and all solid cardstock used. The patterned paper is Stampin’ Up!. I believe it is the Regal paper collection.

For the front of the card, I cut the patterned paper at 4 x 5 1/4″. I cut the solid blue at 3 1/2 x 4 3/4″. I used the Micky & Friend Cricut cartridge to cut Mickey Mouse at 3 1/2″. I used the Pooh & Friends Cricut cartridge to cut the birthday hat at 1 1/2″. I used the Mickey Font Cricut cartridge to cut the number 2 at 1 1/4″.

For the inside of the card, I cut the patterned paper at 4 x 5 1/4″. I cut the white layer at 3 x 4 1/4″. I used the Close To My Heart Card Chatter – Birthday stamp set (which is retired) to stamp the sentiment with CTMH’s Ruby exclusive ink. The birthday hat on the inside was cut from the Pooh & Friends Cricut cartridge, but I can’t remember what size because I was originally going to use it on Mickey but it was too big.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card!

There is one of our Diva’s that is a HUGE Disney fan.  Shawn Mosch organizes a Disney Pixar Blog Hop where several crafting bloggers all post Disney or Pixar inspired projects on the same day.  For Shawn’s most recent Disney Pixar Blog Hop post she created a cork Mickey Mouse framed in rhinestones.

She used the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge for this project.  To check out the FULL project tutorial, head over to Shawn’s blog by clicking HERE.
