I saw THIS minion card using the Sizzix Pop 'n Cuts die. The card was so cute I wanted to make my own Minion pop-up card. I don't have that Sizzix die so I went old school and got out my How to Make Super Pop-Ups book. I searched through my box of scrap paper to find the perfect colors for my little Minion. I think he turned out pretty cute. It was harder than I thought it would be to get the right shape for the Minion.
When the card is closed you can see the Minion peeking over the top.
I needed a card for my cousin's baby shower for her first child. I pulled all of my baby related Stampin' Up sets off my craft shelf and decided to use the Baby Firsts retired set. I love the screaming baby stamp in that set. The word stamp is from Stampin' Up's Curvy Verses set.
I found this cute card with a free template for a paper bow HERE. The instructions for making the bow are super easy. I may even use these paper bow directions for adding a bow when wrapping gifts.
Maybe it will be less than six months before I feel crafty again.
Grandmaman, are you still making cards?
