A Minion for Jae

October 29, 2013

It is my granddaughter Jae’s 5th birthday today.  Happy Birthday Jae.  I cannot believe how quickly she has grown and next year she will be starting school.

jaes-card-and-gift-bagApparently Jae is a big fan of the Minion’s and so I found a link to a  card by Rhonda Fawcett which had a worksheet showing the different punches she had used.  I used this as the guide to create this card for Jae.

I attached my Minion to Whisper White card and then to Island Indigo card before attaching to scored and folded Whisper White card.  I created five balloons by stamping the balloon from Sketched Birthday onto Whisper White card using Real Red, Island Indigo and Daffodil Delight ink and then cut them out.  I attached them to the Minion’s hand and used dimensionals and Glue Dots to attach them to the card front.  I stamped happy birthday from the Sassy Salutions stamp set onto the card front using Real Red ink.jaes-birthday-card

Inside the card I stamped the greeting from the Bring on the Cake stamp set using Stazon Jet Black ink.  I coloured the “5” using a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.

Of course you have to have a matching gift bag and so I created another Minion.  I embossed Whisper White card and attached it to Island Indigo card which has both long edges punched using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  This piece is attached to a plain white gift bag I purchased at Spotlight (Australia).  I punched Island Indigo card using the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch.  I cut the number 5 from Whisper White card using the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet (retired) and attached it to the centre of the Island Indigo circle.  I punched the heart from the Owl Builder Punch from Island Indigo card and attached it to the bottom of the circle.  I ran the piece through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I cut a narrow strip of Island Indigo card and attached it to the back of the “balloon” using a dimensional. jaes-birthday-bag I added a small piece of dimensional to the back of the Minion’s hand to hold the end of the “balloon string”.  The “Happy Birthday Jae” is cut from Island Indigo card using the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet (retired).

I really love how this turned out and so did Jae.

Remember you can purchase the supplies needed to create this card from my online store.


Bye for now,

    This is a great idea Kris! I checked out Rhonda’s site and tried to leave a comment but was unable to do so – but thanks to you too, for sharing such a neat design!

    Cute Kris. I’m glad Jae love her card & pressie – anyone would! You have made this look so easy. I had a go myself awhile ago & it ended up in that basket that we have on the floor
