Fran's Layered Valentine CardHi Everyone! Who doesn’t love a Disney Cupcake?! I have been thinking a lot about one of my favorite treats the Parks and Resorts has to offer. And with Valentine’s Day coming up, I was inspired to get back in the cropping game by making this layered card with a Mickey twist.

Let’s get started together!

I used the following:

  • Pink cardstock (Martha Stewart Crafts)
  • Polka dot scrapbook paper (Martha Stewart Crafts)
  • Scrap of black cardstock
  • 1 inch circle punch
  • Chipboard Printed Glitter Accent Cupcake (Colorbok #65966A VU)
  • Tape runner or similar adhesive
  • Dimensional foam adhesive dots
  • Printer



Honestly, I just layered this free hand. I didn’t really make measurements for the papers, except all of the layering pieces were cropped 1/4 inches in. I punched out two circles using my circle punch and adhered them with foam dots to turn it into a Mickey Disney Cupcake (think the Oreo Bon Bon Cupcake). I also used my printer to print out “Valentine…Knowing You Is Such A Treat!” in Jungle Fever Font. For your own version, just layer and adhere the papers any way you think it looks best.

Give your favorite Valentine a little “taste” of Disney with this quick, layered card : )

Oreo Bon Bon Cupcake?! Meet you at the BoardWalk Bakery!


Craft Time: 10 minutes

Fran’s Tips:

~Don’t forget, feel free to swap out this embellishment for your favorite Valentine goodie with a Disney twist. This idea works for a birthday card, too.


For Fran Cassano, paper crafts have kept the magic of Disney a part of her everyday life. Fran invites us capture our own memories through Practically Perfect DISNEY Crafting… Break out the tools that have been gathering dust. And let’s figure out how, together!

  1. I somehow KNEW you were going to do a valentine’s card for this particular post! I will have to do something similar to this next year, it’s soooo cute (definitely going to “pin” it for that). I already made Kevin his card this year, shhhhh! I will share it with you after I give it to him in case he’s snooping around!
