Create a 3D MOUSE CARD

Create this cute decoupage Mouse Card…


Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse were cartoon characters created in 1928 by gifted artist and animator Ub Iwerks and Walt Disney.

Ub Iwerks was the inventor of the animated cartoon.

Mickey and Minnie were animated characters who were playful musical cartoon personalities in the 1930’s and many people fell in love with them.

A popular, early TV series was called The Mickey Mouse Club and featured a lively team of young presenters who were known as the “Mouseketeers“.  

Children of the1950’s would rush home from school to watch the show on small black-and-white screen television sets.
