Minnie Mouse is such a sweet character. She’s always smiling and dancing, so it’s only fitting that I would make a Cricut Minnie Mouse Card. The Disney® Mickey Font Cartridge has a Minnie Mouse die cut that makes the perfect greeting for any occasion.
I made this Cricut Minnie Mouse Card using a pretty simple layout. If you look at my cards in other posts, you will see that I use this layout often. It is my “go to” layout if I’m stuck for an idea. You can easily change the papers, die cuts, and embellishments to suit your needs. Sentiments, borders, flowers, rhinestones, and pearls can be added. It’s an easy layout to adapt if you’re making a masculine card.
Cricut Minnie Mouse Card supplies, measurements, and instructions
- 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ White Cardstock for Card Base
- 5 1/4″ x 4″ Black Cardstock for mat
- 5″ x 3 3/4″ Patterned Paper for background
- 2″ x 5″ Strip of Black Cardstock*
- 1 1/4″ x 5″ Strip of Paper that Coordinates with Background
- 3 1/2″ Cricut Minnie Mouse Die Cut
- Fiskars – Border Punch – Apron Lace
- Ranger Ink – Stickles Glitter Glue – Tickled Pink
- Three adhesive Pink Pearls
- Glue Pen for assembling the pieces to the Minnie Mouse die cut
- Scrapbook Adhesive
- Dimensional Tape or Pop Dots
*My black cardstock was 2″ wide, but if you have a border punch that makes a punch deeper into the cardstock, you will have to cut your cardstock wider. If you notice, my scallop is rather thin, but some decorative border punches cover a wider area. You will have to adjust the width of your cardstock accordingly.
- Fold the white cardstock in half so you have a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card.
- Using scrapbook adhesive, attach the black mat to the front of the card.
- Attach the patterned background paper to the black mat.
- Using the border punch, add a decorative edge to each side of the black strip of cardstock. Attach it to your card. For this card, I placed it below the center, but sometimes I center it.
- Adhere the coordinating strip of patterned paper to the black strip.
- Using pop dots or dimensional tape, attach the Minnie Mouse Cricut die cut to the right side of the card.
- To finish the card, I added Pink Stickles Glitter to Minnie’s pink hair bow and three pink pearls in a row on the coordinating patterned paper.
You can look at the photo below to help with placement of your papers, Minnie and pearls.
These papers were leftover from another project, and they work perfectly together. You can use any combination of colors and patterns. When I’m working on a card, I lay out all of the pieces first to make sure I like how it looks before attaching them. On this card, instead of black cardstock, I original had chosen a pretty shade of blue. It looked OK, but I decided to use black instead. I really like how the contrast of the black and bright colors is eye catching.
You can change this card so many ways but still have the same basic layout. Instead of patterned papers, you could use embossed paper from the Cuttlebug® Machine. You could use ribbon on the center strip and tie a bow. Instead of pearls, you could use buttons or rhinestones. Watercolor backgrounds are very popular right now and could replace the patterned papers. Experiment and see what you come up with!
