A Star Wars Birthday Card

Hope you are having a nice weekend. My son was invited to a birthday today. We were so busy this week we didn't have an opportunity to go gift shopping. So we grabbed a gift card for the gift. I find kids like to have money to buy their own gift anyway.

I created a card to put the gift card in. I designed it based on the Star Wars logo that was in the card.

To make it extra fun, I made it a shaker card. The black bits are small Darth Vader helmet shapes. The green pieces are Yoda. I originally created the two shapes at 4" tall for the birthday boy's mom to use in the goodie bags and as decor at the party. So I used the same shapes scaled down to 1/2" in the shaker. The red stars were punched from the same shiny cardstock I used on the face of the card. And I included some tiny clear beads to help keep things moving inside the compartment....sometimes the paper sprinkles stick together.

That's it for today! Thanks for visiting.
