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!

Christopher Robin? Layout

I went out of the box on this layout, as I’ve never split a title over two pages. The idea for this layout came from a lady saying that my grandson Ethan should have been named Christopher because he looks like Christopher Robin. Anyway, here is the layout:

I used DCWV Blossoms & Butterflies stack for the patterned background. All other cardstock is Bazzill. I used the Pooh Font Cricut cartridge for the title and all other die cuts are from Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge. I cut the title at a height of 1 3/4 inches using the letter and shadow. Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger were all cut at a height of 3 inches. The Frame was cut at a width of 6 1/2 inches and a height of 8 1/2 inches. The Hundred Acre Wood sign was cut at a height of 2 inches, the Treehouse was cut at a height of 3 inches and the Bee and Bee Hive were cut at a height of 2 1/2 inches. I used my Gypsy to cut all the layers.
Sorry I don’t have more photos, but when this posts I’ll be enjoying my next to last day of vacation in Portland, Oregon.
