We have a birthday party this weekend and I was about to buy a Wall-e card for the birthday boy but hubby said I could just make him one. So off I was to create this birthday card. I didn't know what to do. It's easier for me to create for a female than for male. I feel like we're kind of limited in what we can do for the males. I'm really pleased with the way the card turned out. I used Cricut's Mickey & Friends cartridge for the Mickey. The font is Cricut's Mickey Font. I used a Studio G stamp for the word "Happy Birthday." I heat embossed it using red embossing powder by Stampendous. I embossed the letters with Cuttlebug's distressed stripes folder and the area behind Mickey with Cuttlebug's traffic jam folder.

The paper is by Making Memories. The ribbon is from Michael's. I used a Martha Stewart punch to punch out the circle. I love how it came out. I had never done that before and it was just an idea that popped into my head. I then stamped the number using a Martha Stewart clear stamp set I have.
I also used stickles (frosted lace) for Mickey's hands.
So I had the front all done and then I stamped the inside with Happy Birthday. ACK....I stamped it upside down. So I had to cover up my boo boo. The folder it was. I used Cricut's Fabulous Finds. I figured I could use it to stick in the gift card or $. So I went to stamp the Happy Birthday above the folder. Ugh....I did it again. So that's why I mounted the paper with the word "Happy Birthday." It actually turned out cute - it coordinates w/ the paper in the front. LOL
