Every year I make a Star Wars birthday card for my Grandson Isaac. I’ve made Yoda, BB8 and this year I am making the AT AT.
Here is a picture of the finished project:
This took me ALL day and many times to get it just right! I used the 1/2″ circle punch, square punches even the pinecone die (for the head). I posted quite a few pictures on FB to get my friends thoughts before I was happy with it!
I hope you like it and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask!

I was perusing Pinterest the other day and saw this really cute card that had the ‘wind’ from the Christmas Stamp set “Star of Light” blowing out a candle. Well, my mind went immediately to the Dragon in the SU! set Magical Day and how cute would it be if he was Lighting a candle!? This is how my mind works sometimes so I went with the idea!
Here is the card:
As I’ve said before ‘I just love this dragon’! I love how I colored him this time using Calypso Coral Blends and Cherry Cobbler Blends. NEVER would I have put these colors together but, again, I saw it done on Pinterest. It really makes him stand out, doesn’t it?
Here is the inside:
This Stamp set from SU! also has thinlits that cut out not only the characters, but the Banner seen above! Waves, that I will be using soon, and lots of other goodies!!
For the flags in the front, I used the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper. I sponged the edges with the color that was on the DSP, and also made a banner out of the Silver Glimmer paper and the FREE Shimmer Ribbon pack from the Sale-A-Bration catalog! This ribbon is so pretty!! And it comes in THREE colors and sizes! I also used Rhinestones and the Scattered Sequins Embossing folder.
The Dimensions are as follows:
Cherry Cobbler 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Daffodil Delight 5″ x 3 3/4″
Dapper Denim banner 2″ x 5″
Gray Banner 1 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
Silver Banner 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
Calypso Coral Ribbon 3 3/4″
Scrap of White for Stitched Oval
Scrap of Calypso Coral for Scalloped Oval
Whisper White 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)
I really hope that those who received these swaps love them as much as I do!!
