Celebrate Minions!

Today was my youngest son's birthday - I made him the following card with a couple Minions from Despicable Me.  He loved them!!  They were quite fiddly to make, but I think they were worth it!

They were made with the Owl Builder punch as their base - I also used the Jewelry Tag punch cut in half for their arms and goggles.  

Supplies used:
Stamps: Outlined Occasions (SAB)
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy cardstock
Ink: Basic Black, Whisper White
Markers: Daffodil Delight, Not Quite Navy
Tools: Owl Builder punch, Jewelry Tag punch, 1/2" Circle punch
Accessories: Daffodil Delight pom pom ribbon, 
Other: Googly eyes

  4. Hi there,
    ADORABLE!!! How did you fade out the Not Quite Navy paper to make it look like denim? water, or bleach?

    1. Hi TeriJean - it was actually sponged/smudged with Whisper White craft ink! Thanks :)
