"I'd never forget you." Minion card

I made this card for my daughter's reading buddy. Although it was quite detailed, I enjoyed making him. He is adorable!!!





To make this card, I needed the following (all products are from Stampin Up, otherwise noted):

  • "3/4 circle punch #119873
  • "1 circle punch #119868
  • "3/8 circle punch (retired)
  • Word Window punch #119857
  • Ovals Collection Framelits (#129381)
  • Modern Label punch (retired)
  • Medium Tag punch (retired)
  • Simon Says Stamp balloon die
  • Hero Arts "OWH Little Hoot" Stamp Set
  • Daffodil Delight cardstock & ink
  • Night of Navy cardstock  & ink
  • Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen (#105021)
Step-by-step instructions. Hope it makes sense. If not, please contact me.
  1. Take the 3rd to the smallest oval framlit, die cut. Trim off "1/4 of an inch from each side.
  2. Sponge around the edges using ink.
  3. For his arms, use the Word Window Punch and punch out a piece of Daffodil delight card stock, sponge using Daffodil Delight ink and cut in half. Adhere to his body.
  4. For his legs, use the Word Window Punch and punch out a piece of Night of Navy card stock, sponge using Night of Navy ink and cut in half. Adhere to his body. For his shoes, use the '3/4 circle punch, and punch out a piece of black card stock. Cut the circle in half. Adhere to the tip of his legs
  5. For his overalls, take the 3rd to the smallest oval framlit, die cut. Trim off "1/4 of an inch from each side. Cut the trimmed oval in half. Use the tip of the tag punch to trim out the overalls. For the overall straps, use the Word Window Punch and punch out a piece of Night of Navy card stock, sponge using Night of Navy ink and cut in half. Adhere to the overalls. USe a white gel pen to create faux stitches.
  6. For his glasses, use the "3/4 punch to punch out a piece of Basic Gray card stock. Use the "1 circle punch to punch around the "3/4 hole-- which, will give you the eye glasses. For the eye glass strap, use the Modern Label punch and trim the edges to have enough to stick onto the Minion and the eyeglass frames. For his eyes, use the "3/4 circle punch and punch Whisper White paper, two times. Repeat and use Basic Black and the "3/8 circle punch for the pupils. 
  7. For the balloon, I used the 2nd smallest balloon die from the Simon Says Stamp Die collection and Hero Arts (OWH Little Hoot) for the sentiment.
*** You can swap out the sentiment for a birthday sentiment and make it a birthday card.
