My sweetie and I celebrated our 3rd Wedding Anniversary last week and I thought I would show you the card that I had for him!
I love making cards for loved one and even more when I can customize the card for the specific occasion or person!!! Brad and I are and always will be kids at heart so I thought this card was perfect for our Anniversary! You can check out some of our past cards here and here! I love minions and Despicable Me (2 more than the first one)! Here are some tips on how I made this adorable card!
I used Crumb Cake as my base, Daffodil Delight as my Minion, and Night of Navy for his overalls. To get the rounded head, I took one of my Circles Framelits and laid it on top as a template to cut! For the eye, I used my Circle Punches (3/4″, 1″, 1-1/4″, and 1-3/8″) To create his eye piece, I actually punched out Crumb Cake with my 1-1/4″ Circle Punch and then using the negative (leftover piece and not the circle, I punched with my 1-3/8″ Punch. This gives me that ring! I did raise the ring up with Stampin Dimensionals!! I didn’t have any black buttons on hand so I just created paper ones! I used the 3/4″ Circle Punch and then took my Chalk Marker and created the holes! I used my Designer Type Photopolymer Stamp Set for the greeting! I love how the photopolymer stamps are completely clear so you can see your placement perfectly (even though I’m still not the best at stamping in a perfect line 😉 ….I stamp crooked on purpose.)
Of course, Brad walked in and said a MINION! I love it! I call that a success! 🙂
