Disney Birthday

I can't believe that it's almost December, it's definitely feeling more wintery now, so I hope you're all keeping warm and cosy. It's the perfect excuse to stay inside and craft!
I may have mentioned that my sister and her family are Disney addicts. They even went to Disneyland Paris twice this year and their house has Mickey Mouse logos everywhere. My brother in law is the biggest kid though and so I knew exactly what the theme for his birthday card should be this year. I'd purchased a set of three Disney stamp sets from Create and Craft earlier this year as I knew they'd be perfect for them.
I drew a grid on a piece of card to fit on a 6x6 card base and then stamped the Mickey and Minnie logos in each square in black ink. I then coloured them in using my zig clean colour pens. 
I used the Memory Box Jumbled Birthday die for the sentiment. I played around with the colours, initially trying red and black, but it didn't stand out enough. Eventually, I went with green which is his favourite colour and added a black shadow to it with another die cut. To bring the green into the card I added a green mat along with the black and red ones to pull it altogether. 
Don't forget that I'm running a blog candy Christmas stamp giveaway for my followers. The post is pinned to the top of my blog or you can click here to go directly to the post. Entries close at midnight on 8th December UK time.
