Aladdin thank you card

Every year students at our school put on a play.  This year it is Aladdin and we had a parent who was kind enough to volunteer to make all of the casts costumes!  The music director/teacher asked me if I would create a thank you card to show how appreciative we were.  I used the Disney Dreams Come True cartridge for the cutouts.  I will admit, the layering was a little tricky and the eyes were difficult to create.  I am glad that I cut large images -I am not so sure how they would have turned out if I cut them smaller.  I had a little trouble trying to figure out how to create an unusual size (bigger than the norm) card.  I remembered that I purchased a DCWV 12 by 24 primary color paper pack so I chose the deep purple color and folded it in have to make the 12 by 12 card.  It turned out pretty good!  Here are the materials used for the project:

Dreams Come True cartridge (Jasmine and Aladdin image cut at 7 inches, the genie was cut at 5 inches and the title "Aladdin" was also cut at 5 inches, the image inside of the card was cut at 11 1/2 inches )  
DCWV Shimmer paper pack
DCWV 12 by 24 primary paper pack

I'll let you know how the play goes this week-the students get a preview on Tuesday!!  Have a super great day.
