Mickey Seasons Greetings

I got to playing around with DS today and thought about putting a Santa hat on Mickey's head for a Christmas card. I came up with MICKEY SEASONS GREETINGS card.

I was originally going to do a standard A2 card with the scallop circle and Mickey head and put the greeting on the inside of the card but I remembered I had some red cards that I could use. I think they are just smaller than a 5x7 card.

Cartridges used are -
Mickey Font for Mickey *like DUH okie*
Paper Doll Dress Up for the Santa hat
Beyond Birthdays for Season's Greetings
Mini Monograms for the Scallop circle

The file is made to cut 6 cards at once. Well with two mats having to be cut twice. I figured why not cut 6 if I was going to do one! The mats are labeled for easy identification LOL. The stamping is from Inkadinkado Warm Holiday Wishes. I did go over some of the flourish with a glitter pen *honestly it looks better in person, I swear!*. I cut the ban at 1.5 inches and embossed with the snowflake cuttlebug folder.

If you are going to use the file and plan on doing a A2 card you won't be able to fit the greeting on the front since the scallop circle takes up most of it. The first mat of the file is for reference only and shows the origninal LO I was going to use, and I still might later on.


  1. Beautiful Christmas aCard.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Take care,

  2. Lovin your work! I just got the mickey cartridge, cricut expression and design studio! Woohoo, now I have to figure out how to get everything rolling! Can you tell me what cardstock you used for the Mickey on this card? Was it just generic cardstock colors from your stash, or is there a paper pack with the colors? I am having trouble finding flesh tones.

  3. Thanks Geri!! The cardstock is some Bazzil I got at the LSS. I am not sure if there are packs for Mickey or not.
