Disney Birthday Card


My niece is turning 7 next week and will be celebrating her birthday at Disneyland!  This is the card that I made for her, incorporating Pluto, her favorite Disney character, and a reference to princesses, since she loves them too!  It's an A7 size card, so the berry card base is cut at 10" x 7 1/8", scored at 5".  The aqua layer is cut at 4 5/8" x 6 3/4".  For the patterned layer, I took a sheet from a 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" paper pack and trimmed the top and bottom edges with a pinking shears border die.



Pluto is cut at 4 1/2" from the the Cricut Mickey & Friends cartridge.  I print and cut him on my Imagine, which is perfect for getting the Disney character's colors just right.  I found this Disney RGB code chart on Courtney Lane Designs, which was really helpful for getting Pluto's colors.  To see how to change the RGB codes in your Imagine, see this video that I made.



The cake is cut from the Birthday Bash cartridge at 3".  I ran the white part of the cake through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, and I embossed the icing with the Divine Swirls folder.


For my sentiment, I used the My Creative Time Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies.  I stamped "Happy Birthday Princess" and the crown from MCT's All Around Birthday Time stamp set, and used my iRock to add a few gems.



On the inside, I stamped a sentiment and some music notes from the MCT Wow!  So Many Candles stamp set.
