Today, I wanted to share the card I made using the punch art I shared on Friday. Let's get started.
So here is the finished card. I started with a base card of Baked Brown Sugar card stock cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4". I added a layer of Whisper White card stock cut to be 4 1/8" x 5 3/8". I also added a layer of Basic Black measuring 4" x 5 1/4". All layers were attached to the base with runner adhesive.
Across the top of the black layer, I added a layer of Whisper White. This piece was cut at 1" x 5 1/4". I punched the one side using the retired eyelet border punch and then ran it through the big shot using the perfect polka dots folder. I attached it using runner adhesive and added the red rhinestones to dress it up just a bit.
Across the bottom of the black layer I wanted to add a layer of glimmer red. I cut a piece to be 2" x 5 1/4". Using a 1 1/4" punch for the head and the 3/4" punch for the ears, I punched out the 2 Mickey Mouse heads. I attached the piece to the card using my 2 way glue pen. I then added black glitter to the heads using the same 2 way glue pen.
For the greeting, I turned to my Create a Cupcake stamp set. I stamped the greeting onto a piece of Whisper White card stock using VersaMark ink. I then heat embossed it using an embossing powder called Red Dragon. Once cooled, I punched it out using the word window punch. I also punched a modern label out of black and layered them together using runner adhesive. I then added it to the card using dimensionals.
As we move towards the characters, I want to start by saying I used the cupcake builder punch for all the base and frosting pieces. I will not list this punch below unless it was also used for another piece of the character. All lines were added to bases, frosting, hats, bows and other parts using a fine tip black marker.
Let's start with Minnie and Mickey Mouse. I used the same colors of card stock for each: Real Red, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.
Punches used for Minnie:
Dots - cupcake builder
Ears - 1/2" circle
Bow - retired heart to heart and 1/4" circle
Punches used for Mickey:
Ears - 1/2" circle
Dots on Base - 1/2" circle trimmed into oval shape
Moving on to the next 2 characters we find Goofy and Pluto.
Card stock used for Goofy: Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Night of Navy.
Punches used for Goofy:
Hat top - retired heart to heart punch; I used the wide heart from this and trimmed it
Hat bottom - retired mitten builder punch
Card stock used for Pluto: Gumball Green, Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Basic Black and Daffodil Delight.
Punches used for Pluto:
Ears - word window, trimmed
Collar/Tag - cupcake builder (flame for tag) and a scrap piece for collar
Time for the last character Donald Duck. I used Pacific Point, Whisper White, Real Red and Basic Black card stock for him.
Punhes used for Donald Duck:
Hat - small oval trimmed
Hat Band - 3/4" circle
Hat Band Tail - scrap of black cut into points on the ends
Bow - small heart and the circle from the itty bitty punch pack
All pieces of the characters are attached together using the 2 way glue pen. Once they were assembled, I attached them to the card with dimensionals. Since I wanted Donald to stand out in the center, I double stacked the dimensionals. That set him up higher than the other characters.
If you have any questions about this card please feel free to ask. I will be happy to help you.
That's all I have for today. I hope you will return to visit with me tomorrow. I will see you all then!!!!
