Handmade Minnie Mouse Invitations!

Happy Friday!!! Again!!!!  I just wanted to give you a peak at the new Minnie Mouse invites I promised I'd share...  It's just the outside so far... But I'll post the rest when i'm finished!!!

I came across an embossing challenge over at Frosted Designs earlier this month and thought it would be PERFECT for these invites!!! I already had the "purse" idea in mind but embossing took these invites to a whole new level!!!!  

Here's a look at what I've done so far...

Isn't it just adorable?!?  
I started by digging through my far-too-many cartridges in my Cricut Craft room to design a purse that would fold for an invitation and fit nicely into an envelope!  All the "pre-made" purses have too much depth to send through the mail so I made my own using the "Ornamental Iron 2" cartridge.  I welded together three different shapes, scored where I needed to, and came up with this design that I cut using my Cricut Expression 2!
Then I used my Sizzix Grand Calibur and various Cuttlebug embossing folders to add detail!  I used the "Mickey and Friends" cartridge to cut the mouse and bow, then added rhinestones to the center of the bows.  I finished it with some ribbon tied into a bow to keep the invite closed until it gets to its selected recipient!!! 
Voila!!! An easy invitation that will appeal to almost anyone who loves Minnie Mouse!!!
Here's a couple more pics:
