Your Birthday It Is, Yes!

Today's project is a card I made for a good friend's birthday. My main tools were my Silhouette SD and my trusty Xyron 1.5 Sticker Maker. I also used some Star Wars stickers that I found at Target and had to get for this project. I love how cartoony they look!

So I cut out the "Happy Birthday" text and the stars and circles with the Silhouette. Then with a few of the stars and one circle, I used a clear embossing stamp pad and holographic embossing powder. I really love the way the holographic powder looks on the black cardstock. I ran all the elements, the text and shapes through the Xyron. I love that little thing, it is so useful for attaching those little elements you cut out! I also used the Antique Photo distress ink pad on the edges of the card for a little character.

My Friend loves Starbucks so we got him a gift card. I attached it to the inside of the card using clear photo corners. Great for holding gift cards!

For the inside message I found a Star Wars quote that I thought was appropriate and I used my laser printer to print the message out on cardstock. Then I used my distress ink again on the edges of the cardstock for character. One of the stickers of Luke finished off the inside of the card. I was really happy with how this one turned out and my friend loved it too! That always makes you feel good!

So everyone have a great scrappy weekend! May the force be with you!
