"Minnie's" Not So Mini!

Happy Saturday!

Ok....I'm supposed to be down in my stamp room working on swaps for Convention but this card would NOT leave me alone until I made it.  Lately I've really been intrigued by different fold techniques and this one is so cool.

First let me show you my "inspiration"....


Yep!  It's my Countdown App on my iPhone!  This year's Disney trip is gonna be A-MA-ZING!  We are taking my parents and Britt's fiance, Sam this year and we're staying in the Grand Villa at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort. WOOO HOOOO!  Also exciting....while we're there, Brittany and Sam are having their engagement photos taken by a Disney photographer at Epcot's World Showcase.  Now THAT'S magical!!

Ok....  Enough about me.....  Here's what I came up with.....

When I first saw this fold technique I fell in love.  It's just really fun.  I've decided it's definitely one I'll have to make a video tutorial for.  Now here's what it looks like when you open it up...

I used Melon Mambo card stock as a base and embellished it with a little Basic Black and some coordinating Designer Series Paper. The "Wish Big" stamp is from the "WORD PLAY" Stamp Set.  (It really is a great set to have on hand in your stamp room...)  I stamped it in Versamark ink and embossed it with White Embossing Powder to make it pop.  Then.....I thought it needed a little pixie dust so I mixed up some Champagne Glimmer Paint and rubbing alcohol in a little spray bottle and spritzed the Minnie Mouse head and the two black side panels.  *BLING*  I also took another piece of the DSP and made a matching envelope. 

See.......  So much fun from just a little card stock and DSP. 

Easy....Peasy and fun....

I'm off to watch a movie with Linz.  She came in and said, "Mom, I need some Lady Twin Quality Time with you".  :-)  Now THAT just made my day.  Wish me luck cuz I'm sensing a few Smurfs in my near future.

Have a wonderful evening and I'll see you again soon!
