NO copyright infringement intended – I am not making money out of my cards. I do this for fun.
I am a huge Disney fan and think quotes are just perfect for card-making. I have plans for many more movie-inspired cards (they work great at Christmas) but these are my favourites so far.
“Winnie the Pooh” Graduation Card
This is a very simple card but took ages because I had to assemble a pretty long quote from scratch. Using Milo’s ABCs to do this, I stamped it in 3 sections vertically down the card.
I trimmed around that, leaving enough room for the Congratulations which I die-cut out of dark-blue paper along with adhesive paper. Then I was able to peel off the backing and stick it straight on to my card.
These stamps are from Hobbycraft and only cost 50p-£1 each. Hobbycraft have lots of bargains on clear stamps like these – some of them are exactly the same images as their more-expensive wooden stamps, just a little bit smaller.
Using coloured pencils and Gamsol, I coloured the hat in and did some subtle shading on the scroll. I stuck it all down and voila! A custom-quote graduation card.
“Frozen” Christmas Card
The popularity of Frozen has to be more extreme than any Disney film before it. Even with beloved films like The Lion King, I don’t remember the merchandise being in nearly every shop.
My niece loves Frozen, like most little girls, so this will probably be her Christmas card next year. I wanted to try some partial die-cutting, which I have to admit I struggle with. It took some effort to get the snowflakes how I wanted them.
Then I cut some more snowflakes out of glittery silver paper, and glued them on the white background. Again, I used Milo’s ABCs for this sentiment, though I decided to switch it up and use some more playful alphabet stamps for the word “worth”.
I heat-embossed this and stuck it on white glitter card, which I then cut around with decorative-edged scissors for a pretty border. I love the wintery feel of the snowflakes along with all the glitter.
Finally I stamped this little snowman head and shaded him with Spectrum Noir pens, before sticking everything down on a blank blue card.
