I needed to make a card for a male relative recently and just couldn’t come up with anything. I looked at the Ready to Make projects in Design Space and found this Star Wars card that was bright and colorful and so easy to make. If you’ve never layered cardstock before, this is a great project to get some practice.
Supplies I used:
- Cricut Pen (Midnight)
- Double-Sided E-Z Runner Grand Adhesive Dispenser
- Therm O Web Zots Singles-Medium
- Adhesive Vinyl
- Transfer Tape (or Painter’s Tape)
You can see how easily these layers come together to make a card that really pops.
The X-Wing is two layers of cardstock that are both draw then cut. I was impressed with the detail and how well it cut on intricate cut setting.
I cut the inside sentiment from adhesive vinyl using the Star Jedi font from dafont.com. I probably should have used painter’s tape to transfer it, but I used clear transfer tape and didn’t burnish it at all. I peeled it back very carefully to try to keep from damaging the cardstock.
This card is from the Star Wars – Nostalgia Cards image set. The card designs are $2.99 each or $9.99 for all ten. The colors and the center image on this card could be changed to make a variety of different looks.
I did what a I usually do with card projects, which is to make two – one to send and one to add to my stash.
