A Miss Papercraft Birthday | Frozen Again!

It’s hard to believe that the first Frozen movie was released in 2013 and Disney’s ice empire has been a family favourite for almost 7 years!

Little Miss Papercraft had a first birthday extravaganza with a Frozen theme in 2014 (see the decor fun here).  Fast forward 6 years and we did it all again today!

There’s some wonderful snow themed products coming up in the new Aug-Dec Mini Catalogue, which I had the pleasure of pre-ordering this month.  This catalogue is available to customers from 4th August 2020.  My regular customers will receive their copy of the catalogue this week.  If you need a copy of the Australian catalogue and don’t have a demonstrator, please let me know via email or Facebook.

Using a combination of new product, Annual Catalogue favourites and retired gems, this is the Frozen inspired birthday card I designed for Miss Papercraft.

The sentiment is from the retired Magical Mermaid stamp set and the card base is also a retired favourite – Blueberry Bushel.

When you wind up the snowflake in the middle, it spins around…

This is the reverse side of the snowflake…

The Snowflake Splendor DSP is new – you’ll find it in the upcoming Aug-Dec Mini Catty.  I’ve embellished it with Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems (also new) and Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

I already had snowflake dies, which are long retired, but kept in my stash for Frozen like occasions.  Although, I was super tempted by the gorgeous Snowflake Wishes bundle in the upcoming mini.

I did invest in some Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper – it’s nice to have some sparkle again after Stampin’ Up! retired the previous colour range of glimmer paper.

To make a spinner card you’ll need the Layering Circles Dies and twine to adhere the spinning element.  I used the Night of Navy, white & silver twine from the Flowers for Every Season Combo Pack.

The card was personalised with the birthday girl’s name in blue glimmer.  I used the Playful Alphabet Dies for these letters, and also the ‘7’ on the spinning element.  The inside layer was textured using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and the labels for the card (the name panel and the circles on the spinning snowflakes) are from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I added the writing panel for this card to the back of the fold, so I could write a full message without worrying it would be seen through the spinner hole.

Did you spy the party favour bags in the background of the card photos?  I used the snowflake die (retired) in blue glimmer with a new stamp from the Warm Hugs stamp set.  (Given Olaf from Frozen enjoys warm hugs, this coincidence made me smile!).  I teased apart the same twine used on the cards for a thinner (and differently coloured) version to attach them to the bags.

I had a total fail on the coordinating wrapping paper for the theme, but couldn’t go past this pink unicorn roll from Kmart!

Here’s a picture of the birthday girl looking beautiful with her Frozen inspired face paint.  If you live in the Bunbury area and need a face painter, contact Shelle’s Fancy Face Painting – she was amazing!  Click here to visit her Facebook page.  She also does school holiday workshops and other awesomely creative things!

The girls got to choose their design – each one with a super cute bling cluster to make them feel like the princesses they are!   I couldn’t bear to make Miss Papercraft wash her face before bed tonight!!!

Happy birthday to our gorgeous 7 year old!!!!  May your adventures of the next year be ‘cool’ and ‘royal’!

There’s currently three mermaid stamp options.  I used the mermaid image from the Magical Day stamp set in the Occasions Catalogue and the sentiment from the Magical Mermaid stamp set in the Annual Catalogue.

After seeing some crafters using the wobble springs for panda cards, I bought some to try out.  The mermaid ‘swims’…

 

Here’s a side view of the spring…
