Minnie Mouse Card Tutorial

Here is a quick DIY tutorial for a simple, cute and  easy-to-make birthday card or birthday party invitation. I am sure that everyone will absolutely love it!

As I said before it can be a birthday party invitation - there actual card is a pocket holding a card where you can write your message.

You can make a Mickey card using the same steps, just don't tie a bow!

Also instead of red card you can use pink, and make it all pinky-girly!

I used black, red and white 225 gr card. The measurements are as follow:

If you don't have a diecut machine you can trace something with a similar diameter (like a cup) and cut the circles with scissors.
Fold the black card in half,
Make the corners rounded:
      *black card* 2 top corners
      *red and white card* all 4 corners

Out of scrap paper (I used pink) cut out a circle same diameter as the black circles (7 cm approx). Fold it in half. Unfold, and fold in half again leaving the circle divided in 4 parts.
Align the pink circle with the top of the black card as shown on a picture

make some marks directly on a fold and on the outer side of the card. Make an incision with a craft knife or scissors *not passing the cross on the picture above.
Put 3 mm double sided tape very close to the edge *wavy lines on the picture above.

close the card, so you get some kind of envelope. The red card should come in and out with no effort.

Place your red card and the pink scrap paper circle as shown above.
Put some tacky glue on the corner,

Place the black circle directly on top of the pink one. Like this we are going to be sure that the ears are placed on the same distance from each other.

Repeat on the other side. Now we have the ears!

Glue the white panel on top of the red one.
* you can print it first and then cut out panels. 
Or stamp, 
or use your calligraphy powers))) 
The insert is done, let's put it aside to dry.

Glue the big red circle on the black pocket card.

on a piece of white paper stamp your sentiment, cut it out, you can make the corners rounded as I did. Place the sentiment on the card. I used 2 mm foam tape to raise it a bit

Make a bow, glue it to the top of the pocket card.
Add some bling-bling...
And - voilà- the card is ready. Told you it was easy)))

Hope you liked today’s project!
Thank you for popping round,
