One of my friends asked me to create a card for his son's first birthday. This is an exciting milestone for a parent. Kind of reminds me on my sons' first birthdays, when you want it to be memorable. The challenge though is it has to be inspired by the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, since this is her son's favorite and the theme for his party. She also requested an interactive card.
I was fortunate to download a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse board game pieces from the web. I resized the images, printed it and fuzzy cut it. I flipped the character images to create a window image. I adhered the same images back to back, sandwiching an embroidery floss in between the cut outs. I allowed these to dry with an acrylic block placed on top of it. I only cut the three characters the celebrant loves, Mickey, Donald and Goofy.
I cut 2 of 7" x 4 1/4" white cardstock and 1 7 1/2" x 4 1/4". I scored this last piece at 1/4" & 4". I masked these tabs. I blended these panels with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Broken China, Salty Ocean, and Mowed Lawn. I blended the colors to re-create the clubhouse's background. I covered the green part of the panel then spritz dissolved Ranger Perfect Pearl in water over the sky part of the panel. After this has dried, I cut a window to one of the panels. Do you still remember EK Success Curvy Cutters? I still have mines and it actually became handy to create the window. I cut an arched opening using the circle cutter but cutting it only halfway. I used a craft knife and ruler to complete the arch cut. I traced the window on another white cardstock and cut it off. The stringed characters were sandwiched in between the window panels.
I adhered the clubhouse to one of the inked panels. I embellished this panel further by adhering some of the images included in the file, which I also fuzzy cut.
For the back panel, I stamped the greeting using a Paper Smooches, Lawn Fawn and My Favorite Things stamps. I inked the top part of the letters with red ink and the bottom half of the letters with black ink. I use the Misti Stamping tool to stamp the letters repeatedly to make the color bold. I also used the Misti to ink the letters with Versamark ink so I can emboss it with clear powder.
I assembled the panels using a strong double sided tape. Below is a mini video on how the interactive card works.
