My niece loves Piglet and her whole family love Disney. I swear you can't move more than 6 inches in their house without spotting something else with Mickey Mouse ears on it. It was my neice's 13th birthday in April and they went to Disneyland Paris for a few days to celebrate. I was behind with my crafting and said that her card and pressie would be waiting for her when they got back from Paris. I didn't say which trip though, as last week they took our parents to Disneyland Paris with them. I managed to get this card posted before they returned! It sounds like they had a fab time.
I used this cute Winnie and Piglet die that I purchased from Create and Craft and paper pieced the characters. I used a die from a cheap set of four to cut the hills and mounted them on a piece of card to which I'd added clouds with my Elizabeth Crafts stencil and versamagic chalk ink. I'd also bought a Disney alphabet dies and stamp set from Create and Craft and used them to cut out the word belated. The birthday wishes stamp is from a Clearly Besotted message set. I wanted to keep the Disney feel, but not make it too childlike and so kept it very simple.
I have to say that adding the Disney brand to any craft item seems to double the price, but given their love of Disney I think I can get my money's worth out of them. I even used some of the stamps to decorate the envelope (and inside the card, but I forgot to to a photo of that).
Crafting Live comes to Bolton this weekend, it will be interesting to see what it's like this year after they took it over from Hunkdory. I'm hoping to go on Friday, so wave at me if you see me there x
Fabulous card Cara, lovely image and who doesn't love Poo and Piglet. I love the envelop too, Kate xReplyDelete
Such a fun card and so perfect...as you say not too child like. I love Pooh (and his pals) too and he always brings a smile to my face xReplyDelete
A fabulous card for your niece, great dies, your sky background is brilliant.ReplyDelete

I'm sure your niece loved it.
Loys of crafty love. Jenny L.
Personally I'm a Tigger fanatic, lol, love him and have, ahem, a few Tigger themed goodies. This is beautiful Cara, I bet she'll love it. Never been to Disney Paris but did do Disney Florida and I loved it, would love to go back one day, oh well, onwards and upwards collecting my spoons, have a good weekend xxReplyDelete
So cute and fun!ReplyDelete
She must have been head over heels about this sweet card, Cara! And I got a big kick out of your post title, too!! Hugs, DarnellReplyDelete
I love doing Disney cards too. A top tip (and cheap too) is to google 'Disney Colouring pages' and there's loads of free images that can be used as digi stamps.I love how you've done the sky!ReplyDelete
It's so cute and I'm sure your niece was delighted. BarbxxReplyDelete
