JAI 366 Just Add A & Disney

It's time for another letter challenge at Just Add Ink and Tina asked us to Just Add A, which means we needed to include an occasion, item, colour, technique, or anything else beginning with A. Awesome! So what A's did I include in this happy little card?

Did you guess Alphabet stamps... & Age? Then you're spot on. 

The recipient is a Disney fan (as am I - who isn't really?) so that gave me my theme. Some black (retired) & dazzling diamonds glimmer papers gave me all the sparkle that a 21st needed, & a red spotty paper bow (bow builder punch) made a fun Minnie touch. The head silhouette & number are both popped up on dimensionals for more depth.

I stamped the saying with the Labeler alphabet stamp set & used a die cut heart instead of the word heart. Disney fans will recognise the lyrics from the song of the same name from Cinderella. The song just popped into my mind & I thought it worked really well for the lovely recipient.

 I carried the theme on the back too. Love that large, many font sentiment from the Big on Birthdays stamp set.

Of course my trusty centre step card tutorial came to the rescue again to make the base card. Oh how I love that fold. This is my original size version, cut from a regular card base (half an A4 sheet). See how it looks flat, below.

Note: this sized centre step card normally fits a standard C6 card envelope, but this Disney one may need a custom envelope, as the ears are higher than the card top. However, the envelope punch board will fix that almost before you can say bibbidi-bobbidi-boo.

So that's my A card. If you love it, pin the image below for later inspiration. Then head over to Just Add Ink to see all the A's the team have used in their projects. Thanks for visiting today & hope to see you here again soon.

I have tons of projects to be photographed & share with you soon so pop back again to visit. Until then,

Inky wishes, Di

This is a fabulous card Di! You totally aced the Disney theme - the polka dots and mouse silhouette. Love all that glimmer and I'm sure so will the lucky recipient. xxx

This is stunning Di! Totally takes the Minnie Mouse theme to a new level! I wanted to do alphabet but got sidetracked along the way - funny how that happens! Kelly x

Thanks, Kelly. Getting sidetracked is a specialty of mine too. 😊

Such a special 21st card Di! Minnie will bring joy wherever she goes - and such a great idea to use the alphabet stamp for a custom sentiment too. xx
