Disney Valentine

This is not my usual type of card, and to tell the truth I had bigger plans as far as actual design is concerned.The un-sugar coated truth is that Ariel here gave me a run for my money!I ran out of steam after assembling her! I am an absolute Disney darling and The Little Mermaid is emblazoned into my memory bank due to the number of times I sat and watched it with my oldest daughter.I would give in to her pleas of "Again Mommy...see it again!" Oh yes I know every word, every song....and I love it!

That far off dreamy look took some effort, but worth it. My advice to anyone working with these Disney cartridges is to stick with it, you will eventually get the perfect cuts.I like the look of the white paper colored with copics better than flesh colored paper......but that is a personal preference. Her hair is embossed with the divine swirl Cuttlebug folder and the entire card is spritzed with glimmer mist. She is cut at 4" a good size to start with, much smaller and I'm not sure I would have gotten clean cuts. This was my first attempt, I'm sure it will be easier as time goes by!

Happy Creating, Love

You did a super job on Ariel, definitely a WOW card. I love how you embossed the hair. What a special memory to have of watching "the little mermaid" over and over with your daughter.. hugs

What an adorable card! I love all the little extras that you did on Ariel. I especially like her embossed hair. Great job!

Great card! I know the pain of trying to get all those layers. I made 15 invitations and thought I was going to pull my hair out with all those small pieces.

Wow, great job, Shantaie! I just bought one of the Disney carts (Tinkerbell) and keep hearing nightmare stories about how complex the cuts are. You sure did a beautiful job of this one (I love how you did her hair), especially since it was your first experience with it - I hope I'm that lucky when I finally break down and try my first Tink cut. ;)
