Bonus Birthday Card-Mickey Mouse

Hello Everybody!

I am excited to bring you a middle of the week project.  I love participating in the different challenges online.  They are also great sources of inspiration. 

This card is for Wee Memories WMC74 --Brads, Buttons, and Bows. 

Here is the finished card.  It's for my little cousin Lily who is turning 5.  She loves Mickey Mouse!

Scroll down to see how I made this card...

First I put my background paper on my 4x5.5 base card from Recollections.

Next I get out these little rub-ons that I have had forever!  Originally I was going to put the special written in the Disney font on the silver brad.  However, these rub-ons are so old it would not rub onto the metal!  But that's OK!  I was able to rub it on paper, and cut it out.

On paper...

This is the back of the Mickey Mouse balloon brad.  I tied a piece of embroidery floss to the back of the brad.  I knotted it twice.

Here's the front.

Using the Cricut, I cut the 5 from the Opposites Attract cartridge.  It's about 3.5 inches, and I used the blackout feature.  The first time I cut out the 5, it was wrong.  The Mickeys were going the wrong way!  LOL  I don't cut out patterns I guess because it didn't cross my mind! 

I used pop dots for the 5 and put the special on the 5.  The floss is tucked into the 5, and I used a glue dot to keep the floss under the 5. 

Until next time my friends...stay magical :)
