Happy Minions with Avery Elle

Good morning everyone!  I'm so happy to be here with one of my favorite cards this year:) I started this card by pulling out the new Avery Elle Happy die and stamps.  When I saw the die, I couldn't help thinking of the Pharrell Williams song "Happy" and that, of course, led me to the movie "Despicable Me".  And *that* is how this card got a minion;)  


The funny part is that I used one of the Bottle Up dies (the smaller of the tall bottles) to create my little minion.  The bottom of the bottle is just the right shape:)  To create the goggles/eyes, I used the circle dies from the Custom Panels dies set.  I double cut some silver metallic card stock to make the open circles for the goggles. I used some black enamel dots for his eyes:)   His mouth was cut by hand but you could also use a thick marker.  


I just realized I never gave my little guy some hair!  I'll have to draw those in later:)  My kids are a little too old for this card, but I know a certain preschooler with a birthday coming up and I hope she loves her little minion!

Until next time!  Thanks so much for stopping in!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
