What does the Minion say?

As a counterpoint to the Angry Birds card, we created a Minion card.

Maui Stamper Minion Circle Flip 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.)

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!!
