Frozen Inspired Birthday Card

My oldest son was recently invited to a birthday party for one of his classmates. The little girl was turning 6. We received a Disney Frozen themed invitation. So, what better way to work on your card making skills than to make cards for your children’s classmates/friends. I mean advertising, networking and marketing has to start somewhere, right?! 🙂

Frozen has some great characters to work with–Elsa, Ana, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven. Not sure which character is this little girl’s favorite. So, I will be choosing Olaf. I mean who doesn’t love Olaf?! He’s so funny and cute. “In Summmeerrrr!” in my Olaf singing voice.

Since the classmate is a little girl; I will be sure to sparkle it up! What girl doesn’t love a little sparkle? I know I do.

I start off by finding a cute picture of Olaf. I am going with the iconic leaping Olaf. I decided to have him wearing a birthday hat and have balloons and snowflakes around him. On the outside, I will write my sentiment and have “Happy Birthday” on the inside.

Here is my supply list. Shout out to:

  • Bazzill Basic cardstock- heavyweight, textured paper for card base (PetalSoft) and lighter, smooth cardstock for Olaf (I love their cardstock. They have so many colors and textures to choose from.)
  • Marvy Brush Marker primary set
  • Crayola colored pencils (I love Crayola stuff.)
  • Close To My Heart
    • My Legacy Writer Set-Black, 0.1mm and 0.5mm
    • Exclusive Inks-Pink Carnation and Orchid Bouquet
  • Mod Podge gloss (This is some amazing stuff. Love it.)
  • Acrylic paints: Apple Barrel (Red Apple, Pumpkin Orange) , Americana (Snow Titanium White), CraftSmart (Bright Yellow, Blue)
  • 3M double sided mounting tape (The tape that makes things “pop.”)
  • Glitter (white/iridescent)
  • Disney’s Frozen…Thanks Disney for making this amazingly cute snowman, Olaf.
