As a counterpoint to the Angry Birds card, we created a Minion card.
- Stamps: None (GASP!!)
- Color Palette: Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Basic Black, Smoky Slate
- Accessories: Thinlits Circle card and the Big Shot; 2 1/2″, 2″ and 3/4″ circle punches; Owl Builder punch; Stampin’ Dimensionals; Tombo (the Wonder Adhesive); Fringe Scissors
This is an easy card, but it takes a little time, and your fingers will likely get all Tombo-ee (yes, that is a word.)
Begin with the Circle Thinlet card in Daffodil Delight. You’ll need 2 pieces of Pacific Point (mine were 1 1/2″ tall) for the overalls, plus narrow strips to make the straps. The “button” on the straps is from the Owl Builder – a real button would have made this card too thick for standard postage.
I used a 3/4″ strip of Basic Black for the bands near the eye (what the heck are they for, anyway??) And you’ll need to punch 2 Whisper White 2 1/2″ circles, a 2″ Daffodil circle (that you’ll cut in half), and a 3/4″ Black circle for the eyeball. The glasses? goggle? monocle? is created by punching a 2″ Smoky Slate circle, then centering the round opening in the 2 1/2″ circle punch to cut out a ring. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it some height over the eye.
This is what the card looks like laid out flat. There’s a plain Whisper White circle on the back of the eye to write a message, but here’s where I got stuck. What does the minion say? No idea.
My card is CASED from THIS version, but there are many other versions in the CraftyWeb. Have a blast creating your own!!
