Today is my eldest's 16th birthday (where did those years go?!) and of course, I had to make him a card....after blog hopping the other day, I came across some fabulous inspiration whilst visiting Vicky's blog (Sticky with Icky). I just loved the minion card (from the Despicable Me films) she made for her son Ben and knew I had to have a go at one and this was the result...
...I made my card base to fit a 13x18cm envelope, used a CD to draw around and shape the top, and a corner punch for the bottom...hehe, bot-tom! (You'll have to have seen the film to appreciate this joke!) I cut the trousers, mouth and teeth freehand and used various circle dies for the eyes and goggles...
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Anything Goes (until 31st Jan)
Free and Easy
C is for Colourful (until 14th)
Banish the Blues!
