Get your Mojo 305 & SUO 76 Right Here!
I made this card with the 2 challenges above in mind & for Landon who is entering Kindergarten this fall.
He loves Despicable Me, so I think he'll get a kick out of this card! Handy too that the main character's name is Gru (grew)! Enjoy my fun with pun.
I wish the picture quality was a little better. I think I need either a different camera or some lessons on how to take better pictures!
The little Minion fellows were made using the large & small ticket punches & rounding the top corners. I used the vest from the Owl Builder punch for the bibs on the overalls. Gru is just a tall rectangle with the edges cut in 1/4" from top to bottom. Then you take the parts you trimmed off & invert them so that the widest portion is at the top to become arms. Mount them behind the body. The hands are the flower on the Boho Flower punch; the Minions are trimmed to have 3 fingers & Gru's are trimmed to 4 & 5 fingers (he's a mad scientist - I'm sure he blew off a finger somewhere along the way.) Gru's head is made from the largest Oval punch & then trimmed so that it's rounded up a little. The eyes for all of the characters are from the Owl builder punch.Gru's zipper on his coat & the zippers on the K are just white gel pen with criss-crosses drawn in, the trick to its looking good is to draw on your outer edges first. Gru's nose is just a triangle trimmed to fit his face. His scarf is another oval punch with stripes drawn on & that's about it for Gru & his Minion Crew. The little verse was something I made up, it's printed from my computer in Arial font. There is a little paper piercing in the corners of the gray & along the top & bottom of the yellow rectangle. Colors used were Smoky Slate, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight & Pacific Point; Blushing Bride for Gru's face with Crumb Cake being used for the highlighting.
